Southern Indiana Water Park Adventure

If a water park adventure is on your to do list, look no further than Big Splash Adventure located in historic French Lick, Indiana. This Southern Indiana destination is one of our best loved places in the country. While the Road Trip Teacher crew lived in southern Indiana for many years, we still visit often from our fulltime RVing travels. The French Lick – West Baden area is a favorite because there are so many family friendly things to do. 

We visited this area recently on another favorite Indiana stop at Spring Mill State Park. The campground is beautiful and the restaurant there is just like going to Grandma’s for Sunday dinner. After a fun Haunted Village weekend, we left our rig at the campground and headed to French Lick for some water park action. We splurged on a Pirate’s Hideway room with bunk beds for all four kiddos at the water wonderland.

Water Park Day Trip

Staying at the Big Splash hotel makes visiting the water park a cinch. Family members have the flexibility to go back and forth between the water adventures and other attractions. Consequently, littles can take naps back at the room while older kids enjoy the water park (all housed in the same facility.) Guests staying at the hotel receive water park admission as part of the reservation package.

Water park guests who are staying off property may purchase water park admission separately. Cost for the Big Splash day pass is between $19.95 and $24.95 per day depending on the age. Children under two (2) are admitted free to Big Splash Adventure with a paid parent or guardian.

Unique Water Park Fun

One of the most unique features of Big Splash Adventure is the retractable roof on the building. If the temperatures are just right, guests enjoy the safety of an indoor water park and the sunshine of a beautiful outdoor day. This facility boasts 40,000 square feet of water park activities.

My roadschoolers love water slides but are also fans of all the water action. That’s what makes Big Splash a best liked destination on our water park list. Four aqua slides satisfy my older crowd while everyone enjoys the antics at the Buccaneer Bay splash pad. If a break from the action is needed, a trip down the Lost River is the most relaxing way to explore the water park.

This Indiana water park is rated all thumbs up from the Roadschool 101 crew. It is also featured  on this article: 19 Epic Indoor Water Parks You Will Want To Visit This Year! We have stopped here for just a day and we have also spent an entire week here for all kinds of family fun. Indoor carting, laser tag, family bowling lanes, and the Wilstem Ranch are other things we enjoy in this area of the Hoosier State.
