Aquatopia Indoor Water Park is located near the base of Camelback Mountain ski resort. This is one of the best indoor water parks in Pennsylvania to visit after a day on the slopes — it has 125,000 square feet of water rides in Camelback’s park. 7 pools and 13 heart-racing water slides include a swim-up wet bar and a lazy river. From tubes to body slides, mat slides, bowl slides, and aqua launch capsule slides, they’ve got ’em all.
Aquatopia has 13 waterlogged attractions designed for different age groups (indicated by rider height). Teens can learn to surf on the Bombora Flowrider wave simulator or get an adrenaline rush on the Storm Chaser, an uphill water coaster. Younger kids can splash and slide safely in a shallow, penguin-themed play area, or explore Kartrite’s Quest, a multi-level playground with 84 interactive water features. The Venus Slydetrap is made for the whole family with tubes that accommodate up to six people at once.
Aquatopia was voted the “Best Indoor Waterpark in the Country” by USA Today in 2019 and AGAIN in 2021!
There’s a wave pool, surf simulator, adventure river, multilevel interactive play structures, water activities, and kiddie slides for the younger thrill-seekers in the family. For the adults, there’s a swim-up bar to add to the experience.
Aquatopia is featured in Travel + Leisure magazine’s article about the 12 best family friendly resorts in the United States.
Just opened in 2022, the new Mountain Mayhem is a fully immersive 54″ fully enclosed aqua tube. This 403-foot ride has 4 unique options that light up all 5 senses.
