Great hub - thanks! I live in Ohio, but have not been to Castaway Bay. I'll have to put it on my list for the next time I'm up that way. I'm down in the Tri State Indiana/Ohio/Kentucky area, so we've got Coney Island and The Beach. Love those wave pools!

Well I would like to come here but it is way to pricey for me as a 12 year old with $89.00 to take my family somewhere just to cool off.


Patricia  5 years ago

with 89.00 and a family of 5 and being 12 I cant come here. does anybody know where i can go to cool off for less than 89.00 and a family of 5?

When it gets cold in Ohio, indoor water parks are cool because kids can still swim.
