Water parks are one of those things where it doesn’t really matter what age you are, you’re going to have a blast spending the day in the sun running around feeling like a kid.

I still remember the thrill of heading to the theme park when I was younger and what an incredible day it would be to ride the rides and plummet down the water slides.
