It’s been a long winter already and while we’d all like to get away, sometimes you just can’t go anywhere.  We have 4 fantastic ways for you to feel like you’re in a warm destination, while staying right here in Ontario. Indoor waterparks let you forget about the frigid temperatures for a while and indoor playlands let you and your kids be active while staying warm and cozy indoors.

Who knew that it was so easy to replicate the beach experience in the middle of a Toronto winter?  The Wave Pool in Richmond Hill is a fantastic destination to escape the cold outdoors.  At this perfect family outing, you can ride the waves and the twisty water slide, lounge in the warm waters of the swirl pool or relax in the on-deck sauna.  Sounds heavenly!
Are you looking for a place for your kids to release some pent-up energy?  Bingemans is just the place to take them.  As the region’s largest indoor playground, they can rock climb, tackle a ropes course, climb the 3 level play structure, have fun in Ballocity or play video games.  Check out the Family Day Special!

A visit to Blue Mountain can give you the best of all worlds – fantastic skiing & a little taste of summer.  The Plunge Aquatic Center, at the base of Blue Mountain, has year round fun for everyone!  You can swim in the indoor-outdoor pools, relax in the hot tubs, explore the indoor water playground and slides, try your hand on the rope swing and so much more!
Somehow, being near Niagara Falls seems to inspire people to want to visit a waterpark. I guess it is all that water! If falling water makes you want to swim, check out 3 acres of family fun, including 16 slides (3 stories high – Yikes!) & a massive wave pool at Fallsview Indoor Waterpark.

For the biggest and littlest kids in your family, the Americana Waterpark in Niagara Falls is a fantastic winter getaway.  The Waves Indoor Waterpark has a wave pool with beach entry, whirlpools, a kiddy pool with slides & swings, tube & body slides, an activity pool & and indoor play structure.  The bright, expansive, glass enclosed facility will even make you feel like you’re outside!
If you are bringing your kids to Toronto this child-friendly hotel is a convenient drive to attractions like the Ontario Science Centre & the Toronto Zoo. But travelling with kids can’t be all sightseeing – sometimes they just need to play! The indoor saltwater pool & 110' ft. waterslide here will provide hours of fun for them (and you)!
