Rainbow Falls Waterpark
Today, is all about having fun and getting wet at Elk Grove Village Park District’s Rainbow Falls Waterpark. Kids will have a variety of options for water fun. If they choose Barracuda Bowl where they will enjoy whirling around the water vortex or Iguana Island, a three story water fun house. The kids can have a relaxing time riding a tube on the Reptile River aka Lazy River. For the taller children who are over 48 inches, they can ride on the Pelican Plunge(wind your way down to the water with this fast, fun slide), or go on the Calypso Twist which houses four giant water slides (two body slides and two tube slides) which twist you down to the River’s edge. Check out their website for more information: http://www.elkgroveparks.org/Rainbow_Falls/
**Kids will need their swimsuit, towel, lunch and sunscreen
