We had a splashing good time last year enjoying the sunshine at Calypso Waterpark in Limoges, Ontario. Click here to read about our adventure!
This year we made a family fun day of it and went as a group with the five of us plus my sister in law, niece and nephew. Rain or shine we were determined to go again this year and that we did.
Yes, we were all a little disappointed in the weather not cooperating and it was a bit chilly but we didn't let it put too much of a damper on the day. We brought long sleeve shirts and extra dry towels! There are plenty of tables with umbrellas to relax at between rides!
If you didn't know, Calypso has over 35 state-of-the-art water slides, heated pools, two theme rivers, North America's highest water slide tower, Canada's largest wave pool, over 100 water games and more!
Also, Calypso takes safety seriously with over 600 trained staff and a team of 120 certified lifeguards and slide attendants. There is also an on-site nurse if needed. If you need a life jacket for your kids, they are available on site. Like any theme park, the best way to have fun is to follow the rules and play safe!
During our visit we hit some of our favourite slides and attractions like the Pirate's Aquaplay and Zoo Lagoon. We also tried some rides we hadn't before like the Kongo Expedition and spent some time in the wave pool! We made a game with Miss M to "swim away" when the waves came!
I admit, I'm a little (a lot) afraid of heights therefore I tend to stay away from rides that you need a ladder or a bunch of stairs to get up to. Miss K talked me into doing the Black Hole, her favourite slide. It wasn't that bad but I screamed anyway.
We enjoyed a hamburger and fries lunch at the Cafeteria followed by some more rides and relaxing beside the wave pool to finish off our day.We returned home to Ottawa once again happy and tired!
If you're looking for a great day out take a trip to Calypso!
