An indoor water park in South New Jersey makes a perfect escape for a day trip.
When I took the kids and a friend of Nick’s to Dorney Park in September, it was an overcast and dreary day. Luckily, all was ok in terms of riding the rides and doing sightseeing, but it was too iffy for the water park, so we skipped it.
And the kids were majorly disappointed, because they are all about water. Like they would seriously spend all day, every day at the lake, the beach, or any other small or large body of water if I let them.
So I promised them a consolation prize.
That I would plan a trip to Sahara Sam’s for the next month (October), and we would make a day out of it.
Little did they know, I already had free passes to Sahara Sam’s, tucked away for just the right time.
‘Cause I’m sneaky like that.
(And although people might think I’m silly for collecting Coke rewards, I’ve been doing it for about three years now, and that’s exactly how I got the free passes. So there.)
The indoor water park is open from 10 am until 7 pm, and our goal was to leave in the morning, when everyone was up, and be down there by lunch. It’s about an hour and a half away from us, but a pretty easy, mostly highway drive.
Which was totally narrated by two eleven year old boys in the back seat and their video game sound effects.
