Seasonal outdoor water parks may be gearing up for the season, but indoor water parks continue to make a splash. Two of the newest indoor water park resorts to open are Huck's Harbor
at the Best Western PZAZZ! FunCity Hotel in Burlington, Iowa and the Mayan Adventure Indoor Waterpark
at Holiday Inn Elmhurst in Illinois. Both parks are quite small (20,000 square feet for the former, 25,000 square feet for the latter) compared to the near-100,000-square-foot (and larger) behemoths in Wisconsin Dells, Sandusky, Ohio, Niagara Falls, and elsewhere. Neither of the new parks offer water coasters, FlowRider surfing attractions, or other signature thrill rides. But families with younger kids should enjoy the low-key water fun--especially when cabin fever sets in during winter months. Huck's Harbor also offers a modest outdoor water park that will be opening when the Iowa weather warms up.
