Splash Aqua Park
For the next visit in the Family Fun Series, it was time to get in the water. The latest outing took us to Splash Aqua Park. If you’ve never been, it’s a mix between a splash park and a trampoline park. Big inflatables are placed in a huge area of water and people can run from inflatable to inflatable, jump off them into the water, and just have a ball. All the inflatables are set up like an obstacle course so you could even have your own version of the hit TV show Wipeout.
When you arrive, you are asked to fill out a waiver form. I would recommend doing this online to save time. Prices are $15 for a one-hour pass. Other options are available to save money like multi-hour passes and such.
After paying, everybody went over the rules and was given a lifejacket. There were different sizes available for everyone. The staff made sure each person was fitted properly especially the kids.
We took a couple of the kids and they had a blast. One of them had never been before and he said afterwards, “That’s the most fun I’ve had in a long time!” They went for an hour and was exhausted by the time it was over. Lifeguards were all around the park ensuring kids were abiding by the rules which was nice.

I guess since the last time we stopped by, the park was under new ownership. One of the things they did was add some new inflatables which gave the kids more to do. I’m not sure how long it would take to walk to each one on the lake, but there was no chance I was going to time myself doing it.
If the park isn’t your thing or if you are just there to hang out with the kids, there’s plenty of space to hang out. A beach area is set up with chairs or you can always bring your own. I also saw many parents bringing their own coolers which is definitely on my to do list next time.
Another cool addition was the cabanas which anybody could rent. The cabanas offered seating on the lake and a private space for parties to hang out. They were $35 to rent per hour and I’m not sure if that includes any passes to the park.
I’m always on the hunt for different things for the kids to do around Wichita. This was one of the more unique attractions that helped them stay active which was a bonus.
Oh and there is a food menu!
