There are plenty of ways to get wet at the CoCo Key Water Resort Waterbury.

Overview:

The CoCo Key Water Resort in Waterbury, Connecticut is a medium-sized indoor water park. It may be located in the heart of New England, but the theme at the park is Key West. The water park features the a body slide, the Barracuda Blast and Gator Gush tube slides, and a lazy river. One of the more intriguing features is an indoor/outdoor whirlpool spa, which can be quite bracing on a chilly winter day.

Younger kids will enjoy the interactive play center, Parrot's Perch, which has small slides and a tipping bucket. The area also contains a "Dip-In Theatre," a shallow pool with a constant loop of movies and cartoons. Given the cacophony of noise and competing visuals in the park, I don't think anybody ever actually watches the screen.

Unlike larger indoor water parks, such as Great Wolf Lodge Pocono Mountains, the Connecticut park lacks marquee attractions like a water coaster, simulated surfing ride, or a funnel ride. Lacking any potent thrills, CoCo Key is ideally geared to families with children 11 and under.

There are fast food stands inside the park from Pizza Hut and A&W Root Beer. There is a table-service restaurant inside the hotel.

The resort offers guest rooms and suites, as well as an arcade with redemption games, conference facilities, party rooms, an enormous ballroom, and a fitness room. The water park's colorful, tropical theme does not extend to the hotel side of the facility.
