When you want a break from strolling around looking at Old Masters paintings and Balenciaga shoes, you can go for some let-loose-and-scream-with-abandon adrenaline at Rapids Water Park. There are more than two dozen rides of varying levels of wildness, classified as Wild and Thrilling, Mild Attractions and Kids’ Attractions. We like the Wild and Thrilling ones the best. The Pirate’s Plunge twists, dips and goes over a seven-story drop; Black Thunder puts you in the pitch darkness until you go flying out the bottom of the enclosed slide into the plunge pool. Once you’ve had your share of thrills, float in the lazy river and let your blood pressure return to normal. Admission Monday-Friday is $32.95 per person; Saturday-Sunday, $35.95; children 2 and under get in free.
