America's Top Family-Friendly Water Parks

There's no better way for parents and kids to cool off on a hot summer's day than with a plunge down a water slide. Here are some of our favorite family water parks around the country.

1 of 11

Schlitterbahn (New Braunfels, TX)

Schlitterbahn places at or near the top of almost every list of top water parks, and for good reason. Conveniently located outside of San Antonio, and only a short drive from Austin, Schlitterbahn features an amazing assortment of aquatic attractions for all ages. The biggest star: the "Master Blaster," a long, twisting water coaster with as many uphill sections as down. (Open May through mid-September)

Next: Water Country (Portsmouth, NH)
