      Terrific list of some really fun water parks in PA.......My son & Daughter-in-law enjoy taking their children to water parks at least once each summer. They all have such fun

      I was really expecting to see Waldameer Park & Water World, (Erie, PA) included in your list and surprised it wasn't there. I'm most familiar with Waldameer because I lived in Erie (Mill Creek) 25 years ago for a couple of years.

      Very informative hub....UP++++

      Wow, Splash Lagoon looks a lot like Kings Islands water park. If I am ever in the area, this would be a fun place to visit!
