For many Denver kids, summer means Water World. Just north of Denver, this 64-acre park has everything from gentle rivers to wild water rides. Water World is one of the best things to do in Denver in the summertime if you're traveling with kids and want a full day of entertainment. Wally World (yep, there really is a Wally World) is an area just for little kids, with tot-sized slides and gentle water features. Teens seem to flock to the Zoomerang, a half-pipe water slide, and the Screamin’ Mimi, where riders zoom down a 50-foot-track at high speeds. And everyone loves the wave pools and Lazy River. On-site food selections are limited to the standard burgers-pizza-chicken tenders so if you have picky eaters (or just want something different) bring your own picnic to enjoy on the grounds. Tots under 40” are free and full adult admission is roughly $35 for a whole day or $20 for a half day. Prices vary depending on the day so check out the Water World website for current ticket prices.
