2 AFFORDABLE ALTERNATIVES TO INDOOR WATER PARK RESORTS IN WASHINGTON
Don’t you just hate winter weather driving sometimes? It’s like, when you want to hop in the car and drive somewhere, you can’t because of those darn icy roads. If you had your sights set on hitting up the Great Wolf Lodge this winter but can’t for transportation reasons or more importantly, financial reasons, there are 2 affordable options we know of to get your family's indoor water park fun fix. One of them is in Washington and the other is in Idaho.
WE’RE NOT SAYING THAT THE BIG INDOOR WATER PARK RESORT IN WASHINGTON ISN'T WORTH THE DRIVE…
It would also no doubt be an unforgettable experience to go to Great Wolf Lodge Resort with your family and friends. Nestled in Centralia not too far from a stop off Hwy 12 and State Route 508, the lodge is home to an indoor water park, themed suites, and indoor dining. This year-round indoor water park and resort awaits for $72 for Half Day pass or $90 for the Full Day pass! Standard room stays range anywhere from $199 per night up to $599 per night, depending on the time of year and day of the week.

But what if you can’t afford a stay at a luxurious family-friendly resort destination?
THE YMCA & ROTARY AQUATIC CENTER IS A TON OF INDOOR WATER PARK FUN, FOR A FRACTION OF THE PRICE…
The Yakima YMCA and Rotary Aquatic Center may not be a resort, but it certainly has indoor water park-style fun. There are heated pools, a lazy river, small water tower spill spouts, plus a hot tub for the grown folks! It might seem scaled down compared to Great Wolf Lodge, but the aquatic center can bring a ton of fun for a fraction of the price at a resort!

IF YOU WANT TO DRIVE TO AN INDOOR WATER PARK IN IDAHO INSTEAD...
Raptor Reef Water Park might be a really fun option for your indoor water park needs, but if you live in Washington state, chances are Hayden, Ida., is too far of a drive from Central Washington, especially in this slippery winter weather. It costs $14.95 for a Half Day pass and $26.95 for a Full Day pass.
