Castaway Bay is a family friendly water park and hotel located in Sandusky, OH. Offering tons of fun for the whole family, and temperatures at 82 degrees, you'll feel like you are on a tropical vacation, even if the temps are still below zero outside.
As soon as we arrived, we couldn't wait to grab our wristbands and head to the water area. Not only did it feel heavenly temperature wise, the first thing I noticed was the fun atmosphere. Bright colors, palm trees, and tropical decor all catch the eye.
The first thing my girls were excited to try out was the wave pool. They waded around in the still water until the waves started up, then had fun bobbing around on them. What I loved about it was the waves weren't over powering. I have been to other wave pools where the force is so strong, other swimmers are slamming right into you. That will NOT happen at Castaway Bay!
We then walked around exploring the other areas. Located close to the wave pool was a kiddie area. While my girls bypassed it, I thought it was set up very well. Short slides and a little water fall make for fun play with the little ones. We did have a lot of fun playing basketball with the 4 hoops set up in the pool area.
The hot tub area is a wonderful place to relax. With warm temps and cascading waterfalls, I didn't want to get out! If you walk through the hot tub, you come across a door that leads you straight outside to an even bigger hot tub area. There's nothing quite like sitting outside surrounded by snow, but still being warm and cozy!
Both girls had a lot of fun getting splashed by the huge dumping bucket!
The highlight is the water slides though! Allison had us riding the Rendezvous Run over and over again, but by the end of the day she was riding it all by herself like a pro!
I was pleased to see there were plenty of lifeguards at each station, and they had everything organized and running smoothly. I also loved that they had plenty of life vests available, more than enough seating, and even had towels available for the guests.
If you find yourself in need of refreshments, you don't even have to leave the water park! Stop over at Big Daddy's Snack Shack for a beer or a bite to eat. The only complaint we had was at Big Daddy's. We don't carry our wallets into the water park, so we would have loved it our wristbands were set up to charge the bill to our room. Other than that, the food was great, and everything was reasonably priced.
The water park isn't the only fun you can have at Castaway Bay! Be sure to stop back tomorrow to see all of the other great activities that are offered for you and your family to enjoy! Also, I will have a very special giveaway going up for some Free Day Passes! You won't want to miss that!
