A medium-sized indoor water park, CoCo Key in Columbus, doesn't offer flashy rides like an uphill water coaster or family raft ride found at bigger parks such as the Great Wolf Lodge at Kings Island
. It does have body slides, the Barracuda Blast 2-person raft slide, and the Palm Grotto indoor/outdoor spa, as well as the Parrot's Perch interactive play center with a tipping bucket and smaller slides.
The park has an inviting Key West theme. For younger children, CoCo Key has toned-down water activities. Party rooms and an arcade are also available.
In addition to the water park, the adjacent Cherry Valley Lodge offers 200 hotel rooms, an upscale spa, restaurant, fitness center, and meeting facilities.
