At our indoor waterpark your age doesn’t matter – everyone will have a good time going down the slides, play water volleyball, or relax in the adults only hot tub!

The low-impact activity of swimming has many physical and mental health benefits. It is a great workout since the water provides resistance against your movements. Swimming is simply a great way to keep fit, stay healthy, and make friends.
Swimming takes the stress of impact off your body but simultaneously keeps your heart rate up. It also builds endurance, muscle strength, and cardiovascular fitness and help s maintain a healthy weight, heart, and lungs.

Other health benefits of swimming include:
• Alleviating stress
• Improving balance, posture, and coordination
• Good therapy for some injuries and conditions
• Improving flexibility

Before you dive in it is important that you know how to swim properly. Always supervise children that don’t have much experience with swimming, even if they “technically” can swim. Make sure to drink plenty of water to prevent dehydration (it is easy to get dehydrated in water, even though that may sound like a contradiction!). Also make sure to follow the rules and guidelines of the pool area. The rules are there for a reason and that is to prevent injury and to keep you safe. Remember to frequent breaks to prevent exhaustion.
