Planning a family vacation and not sure where to find the perfect balance of fun and adventure for everyone in your traveling party? Consider one of these amazing Adventure Park locations. Each park has something unique to offer and is sure to please everyone in the family.
The Wizarding World of Harry Potter: Universal Studios, Orlando, Florida
If you are even just “kind of,” a Harry Potter fan then you will have a great time on this adventure: in fact, you might just find it spell-binding. Hogsmeade and Hogwarts have been completely recreated, down to the tiniest of details in this Orlando Park. Here you can ride Harry Potter and The Forbidden Journey, meet Dumbledore, join in on a Quidditch match and test your bravery on the ultra-quick Dragon Challenge coaster. After a day of adventure, you and the family can enjoy shopping at Ollivanders and wandering the streets of this enchanted adventure.
The Wisconsin Dells: Wisconsin
If you and your family are all about water slides and water rides, then this is the park for you. At last count there were 18 indoor/outdoor options and more than 200 “splashtastic” slides, making this Midwestern hotspot the waterpark capital of the world. While you are there, head on over to Noah’s Ark Waterpark and grab a day pass to explore and enjoy the largest waterpark in North America. Here you and the family can enjoy zipping down the 47-foot-high, 4-land Quadizilla. If your family is looking to book rooms at one of the resorts, check through your options before deciding which one works best for you. Many of them offer on-site water adventures, but not all of them are friendly for younger children. Also, they each have unique themes, so it is best to determine ahead of time which one will work for you and your clan.
Cedar Point: Sandusky, Ohio
Are you a thrill seeker? Are you the person fighting to be in the front seat of the front car on every roller coaster you can ride?

At last count, the Park was home to 17 of these thrill rides. Steel, wooded, suspension, standing—you name it, you will find it here.
