We celebrated Bob's new job by taking the kids to Key Lime Cove! The picture above is a shot of the splash pad area, where Sam and Hannah hung most of the time. They ran around like wild monsters for about 5 hours. When it was time to leave they cried, and begged to stay longer.
Mac and Bob did the big boy slides. Which take you out of the 65,000 square foot water park. The body slides were fast and furious and the tube slides were great fun. Not a fan of enclosed body slides, it took quite a lot of doing by Mac to get me to go down them. I did the two body slides the first day. The next day, I told Mac no more slides. But, he convinced me to try the tube slides. They were awesome. So much fun. I wish I had tried them the day before. I would have lived up there.
Bob loved the lazy river. Jump into an inner tube and float around the park. It was a great way to chill after riding the slides!
They also had craft activities, scavenger hunts, a story time and family game night. We never spent any time in the room. Which was a good thing. While the rooms were entirely adequate, they were a bit small for a family of 5. We are spoiled by usually having a suite, and just having 1 room was a bit tight for us. The whole facility is on the edge of needing a remodel. The carpets are beginning to show wear and tear.
The pool area was very clean and the life guards were definitely on their game. I watched them pull 3 people out. They don't screw around. Which gives you a great piece of mind when your kids are running around without you!
The hotel was deserted, so we never had to wait to do anything. I can imagine that if it was full it would be as much fun, but Bob and I agreed that it might be a fun week-day winter activity in the future!
