Schlitterbahn Vacation Village is the best waterpark in the Kansas City area and part of the hugely successful (and awfully fun) Schillterbahn Waterpark chain. The best part of Schlitterbahn is the sheer variety of rides and attractions available. You'll find everything from staples like the wave pools, lazy rivers, and water castles for the kids to more adrenaline-inducing rides like the Black Knight tube slide and the Boogie Bahn surf ride. I suppose that's the best thing about Schlitterbahn: it's thought out for the whole family to enjoy. Whether you're going with friends, teenagers, or smaller children, there's a set of activities that'll appeal to each. The other nice part about Schlitterbahn is that there are several restaurants on the premises and a beach area where you can lay out and catch some rays.
The ticket prices run about $35 for adults and 28 for children and seniors. There is free parking on the premises so that’s one thing less you have to worry about. Also, they have special discounts if you purchase tickets online so that’s something to consider before you go. Now, it’s time to get wet!
