Wildwoods Water Park in Otsego, MN is a great day vacation for the whole family. It is attached to a beautiful hotel, which is reasonably priced. Plus, if you stay overnight at the hotel you will receive four complementary tickets into the waterpark. Individual tickets are $20 a piece, so it is an $80 value.
The nice thing about this waterpark is that it is indoors. Minnesota cannot have water parks that are outdoors in the winter time because it is so frozen. You can visit anytime during the year, which I love since I live so close to it.
This water park is so huge. They have four different big water slides, a lazy river and tons of other activities. They also have life jackets for the little ones too free of charge to use! We love to take the kids to the water park because half of the water park is dedicated to the little ones, and they have so much fun.
They have a fancy restaurant as well as fast food type cafe to eat at. The food is reasonably priced, and it is easy to make it a day trip, or overnight trip. If you get tired of swimming, you can even go to the arcade and play some games. If you are ever in central Minnesota, I recommend you check this place out.
