It’s January, the winter blues are getting to us all, the gloomy days, the yucky, muddy, snow covered walkways, the lack of sunshine and the frigid cold. Everyone could use a little pick me up going into February, us New Yorkers know that winter is far from over and sometimes you just need to feel like you’ve traveled to a tropical paradise with an adventure around every corner. Everyone needs a little sunshine in their lives, especially in the dead of winter.

Lets get to the main attaction here... the waterpark, the glorious, phenomenal waterpark. Fun Fact: Katrina has the largest indoor waterpark in New York. This water park is going to keep you and your family entertained for hours, heck days if your kids are anything like mine. It’s always a balmy 84 degrees inside, which is a heatwave to New York temperatures right now. It’s perfect for navigating down any of the 4 big water slides (The Krakken, Nor'easter, Jiggerty-Jaggerty, and Time Warp). Got younger tater-tots no worries, this water park also caters to them. There’s Later Gator Crossing, Kartrite Island and Puddle Ducks.

Did I mention the Lazy River? No? Well after you have been down all the slides and are ready to chill and relax for a bit you have got to check out the Lazy River. You can literally spend the rest of your day just relaxing and floating down the river. Sounds down right magical doesn’t it?

If by some chance your waterlogged and looking for some other indoor activities that don’t require a bathing suit, you need to stop by the high ropes course, laser tag or the bowling alley. They even have an escape room that you can participate in. Of course if you have gamers in your life, then the arcades will be right up your alley.
