Everyone deserves a tropical getaway, especially during the winter months! If you are looking to escape the snow and cold, remember that it is never too early to start planning your winter or Spring Break getaway at Splash Lagoon Indoor Water Park Resort.
As the weather outside gets chillier, you can rest assured that a tropical oasis is waiting for you inside Splash Lagoon, where the forecast is always 84 degrees. The water park is conveniently located just off of I-90 in Erie, Pennsylvania and is easily accessible for guests from Ohio who are looking to experience indoor, weatherproof fun.
Splash Lagoon has been named one of America’s Top 10 Indoor Water Park Resorts by USA Today Readers’ Choice, has received the Traveler’s Choice award from TripAdvisor, and has been recognized by numerous industry trade magazines as an ideal getaway destination.
Since opening in 2003, Splash Lagoon continually strives to exceed guests’ expectations and provide a fun, award-winning indoor water park experience.
You’ll find numerous attractions and activities when you arrive at Splash Lagoon including several exciting water slides, three hot tubs, a giant Tiki Tree House and Tiki Tipping Bucket, the Monkey Shines Island Kids Area, the Wild Waters Wave Pool, and more.
Everyone can be a kid again inside the water park. The resort certainly has something that will entertain guests of all ages and satisfy everyone’s thrill level.
In January 2020, Splash Lagoon expanded and added a thrilling new attraction to their lineup: the FlowRider Indoor Surf Machine. Guests can hop on a board and experience the thrill of riding a wave with the guidance of helpful instructors.
The FlowRider is also equipped with a light display and an immersive sound system to enhance each surfers’ experience. This expansion also included the addition of the all-new Surf Bar and a balcony seating area overlooking the FlowRider and the Wave Pool where guests can sip delicious island drinks and munch on satisfying snacks while taking in some stellar views.
To top it off, this expansion included a 3,500 square foot addition to the Treasure Island Arcade, which now includes dozens of new games.
Along with the FlowRider, some of Splash Lagoon’s most thrilling attractions are one-of-a-kind water slides. From the lighter Mauie Wowie, to the swirling bowl of the Cyclone, to the heart-racing Hurricane Hole, there are inner tube and body slides that will take everyone on a wet and wild journey from start to finish. Splash Lagoon also has a variety of pools and hot tubs (included one designated only for adults) so guests can fill their swimming fix.
Need a break from the water? There are plenty of things to do at Splash Lagoon that will keep you dry. Grab a tasty bite to eat at the Laguna Grill, or test your skills in the arcade and immerse yourself in all-new adventures on the Hologate Virtual Reality attraction. Guests can also spend some time climbing high above the park navigating obstacles on the Tree Tops Ropes Course.
Ready to experience the fun? Planning a trip to Splash Lagoon has never been easier. Thanks to the resort’s convenient location, the park is easily accessible to exceptional lodging and dining accommodations.
Splash Lagoon has three hotels that are directly connected to the water park (The Holiday Inn Express, Hawthorn Suites, and Comfort Inn & Suites) that are suitable to meet the needs of any family. There are also three nearby partner hotels (Country Inn & Suites, The Courtyard Marriot and The Hilton Garden Inn) that offer shuttle service directly to the park.
Looking for a place to eat outside of the park but don’t want to go out in the cold? Hooch & Blotto’s Sports Bar and Grill is also connected to Splash Lagoon. At Hooch & Blotto’s, guests can enjoy delicious pub fare and craft beers and bowling at an eight-lane alley. Splash Lagoon’s location on the hub of Peach Street in Erie is near some other great dining options as well, like Quaker Steak & Lube, IHOP, and Applebee’s.
