Surf’s Up At This Incredible Idaho Indoor Waterpark
Who wouldn't want to go splash where it's 84º everyday?
With McCall Winter Carnival canceled this year, your family may be looking to break tradition with a new winter get away. While this adventure is definitely a longer road trip, it offers you the best of what both winter and summer have to offer!
Silver Mountain Resort was a Travelers' Choice Award Winner in 2020, meaning that it's ranked within the top 10% of properties on Trip Advisor. It also holds the prestigious rank of the #1 thing to do in Kellogg and it's not just because it's a great destination for skiing, snowboarding, tubing and the occasional scenic gondola ride for those of less coordinated people. Silver Mountain Resort is also home to Idaho's largest indoor waterpark!
Silver Rapids Waterpark gives guests a chance to warm-up and splash around even during Idaho's coldest month. It offers 10 different attractions! Surf's up on the FlowRider, a continuous wave pumping over 60,000 gallons of water at 35 MPH every minute. You can either boogie board it or if you've got great balance, try surfing it! When it comes to waterslides, Moose Sluice is their take on a family raft ride. Gold Rush and Prospectors are enclosed fiberglass tube slides that you ride individually. For when you just want to relax, you can grab a tube or hanging out in the Warm Springs, a spa that's not quite as warm as your standard hot tub.
Tickets for the water park are included if you stay with Silver Mountain Lodging. You can can also buy day use passes online, but due to COVID-19 capacity restrictions day passes aren't available on Saturdays or holidays.
If you know you have PTO days that will go to waste later this year and your kids are doing school online, this might be a fun trip to plan and get away for a little while!
