Raging Waves Waterpark

Raging Waves Water Park features the Boomerang funnel ride.

Raging Waves, 2008.
Billed as Chicagoland's largest water park, the Australian-themed Raging Waves offers a huge assortment of watery diversions including the Boomerang funnel ride, the Cyclone bowl ride, a family tube ride, and a great collection of body slides, tube slides, and speed slides. After waiting in the lines and experiencing the thrills of the slides, the Kookaburra Kreek lazy river is a great way to mellow out and stay cool.

The enormous Great Barrier Reef wave pool also offers a cool respite, albeit with the occasional surf pounding into you. Younger kids will enjoy the multi-level, interactive water play center, which features a dump bucket along with smaller water slides and loads of soak-worthy sprayers and other user-activated gizmos.
