With the warm weather creeping in around the corner, eveyone is ready to take off their thick winter coats and jump into the water. There are plenty of beaches in New England, but sometimes we just have to relive the fun days of speeding down sliding tubes at water parks - which is why we put together this list of the best ones!


1. CoCo Key Water Park Boston North Shore


CoCo Key is the largest indoor water park in New England, so for families who can't wait until summer, this is definitely the place to be. Located in Danvers, just north of Boston, this indoor water park offers day passes, as well as overnight packages with accomodation. For families with birthdays, CoCo Key also hosts unforgettable birthday events for children. Packed with obstacle courses and slides without the worry of sunburns, CoCo Key is a great place for some quality family time, with a wet twist!


2. Funtown Splashtown USA


Funtown Splashtown is a large scale amusement park in Saco, Maine - and when we say amusement park, we mean amusement park with all sorts of attractions. Bumper boats, roller coasters, go-karts, you name it. Splashtown, its water park counterpart, is also packed with action. From family raft slides to straight plunging drops, there's more than one way to splash away at your friends and family.

3. Santa's Village


Now you may be wondering: aren't we talking about water parks here? Isn't Santa's season over? Not in New Hampshire it's not - Santa's Village is a year long park with a Christmas theme, whether it's sunny or snowing. During the warm days of Spring and Summer, Santa's Village opens its HoHoH2O Water Park to the public, as well as its Christmas themed attractions. Take a ride on the Christmas Ferris Wheel, and navigate the park on a sleigh monorail over 30 feet above the ground - everyday should be Christmas!
