Waterpark season is just around the corner and if you are looking to take your family to the BEST water park in the Show-Me State look no further than this park packed with 2 million gallons of water...

According to US News, Silver Dollar City's White Water in Branson, Missouri was the ONLY water park in the Show-Me State to make the list of the 36 best water parks in the country in 2024.

In the article, they say "this 13-acre water park, which features 2 million gallons of water across a lazy river, wave pool, and a bunch of slides. Thrill-seekers will gravitate to the KaPau Plummet ride, with its near-vertical 40-foot plunge that drops you at a rate of 26 feet per second. If little ones are in tow, drift in a tube in the Aloha River or splash around in the Coconut Cove water playground" To see the complete list of the top water parks in the country, click here!

Worth the trip?

Silver Dollar City's White Water is about a 5-hour drive from us here in the Quincy/Hannibal area, so is it worth it? According to the website for the water park, the park opens on May 25th, it is right there next to the theme park, and is close to all of the other fun things to do in Branson. Is it worth it?

I wouldn't drive 5 hours JUST to do a water park, but, making White Water Park of your Branson plans sounds like a great idea! If you need more convincing on White Water, check out this YouTube video below...
