On a cold winter day, there is nothing better than driving just 20 minutes down the road to give your children some summer fun. Ships Ahoy offers kids a fun place to splash and play all year round with out having to wait for summer to get wet! My three year old had a absolute blast here and couldn’t wait to get changed and splash around in the water. They had animals that shoot water, a little slide that even he wasnt afraid to do, a waterfall and lots of things that shoot up water from the floor to jump around in.
It was nice and warm inside and not too crowded. Most moms had flip flops on to walk around the outside with their child but you really don’t need to wear a bathing suit yourself. Bonus! People seemed to know to bring buckets, watering cans and toys to play in the water with. You also need to bring your own towel.
Other than that, they have everything you need! There are two changing rooms right inside the space, as well as a shower in the corner. They have a small table and chairs to sit and have a snack as well. My son is not yet potty trained but I did notice that kids had to leave the area and go through the cold gym to go to the bathroom. Something to note.
Other than that, it is an absolute blast!
Few things to note:
- Bring a towel
- Only kids need bathing suits
- Bring snacks/water
- They host birthday parties!
