Watiki Water Park is Worth the Trip to Rapid City
Who says you can't enjoy a cool water park in the middle of winter?
All you have to do is hop in the car and take a 10-hour drive to Rapid City, South Dakota to find Watiki Indoor Water Park Resort. You've got the lazy river, the sink hole, huge water slides, and more - and it's all inside.
The water park is a great destination for families. Wintertime is the perfect time to go because you get off-season rates, which are about half the summer admission rates.
In addition to the water park, the resort features a 40-game arcade, a bar & grill, and a Starbucks. How could you possibly go wrong?
There are a number of hotels surrounding the water park which makes it super-convenient and you can't beat the price. The off-season hotel rates are also off the charts with many rooms booking for under $50 a night. And when you are finished with fun at the water park, other amazing South Dakota attractions are waiting nearby. Mt. Rushmore, Historic Deadwood (and casinos) and Terry Peak Ski Area are all within an hour's drive of Rapid City.
So, yes, it may be wintertime, but a winter vacation in South Dakota is the perfect place to enjoy some great water fun.
