This winter was brutal here in the midwest. We’ve had record amounts of snowfall and record low temperatures which means record amounts of the winter blues. Though we have occasional pleasant days now that it’s spring, parents are dealing with kids that want out – they want to be outside and entertained and already our kids are asking to swim. Parents need a vacation; we all need to get away. We need to be where the temperatures aren’t a record low but instead a tropical 82 degrees. We need a place where parents can relax while they’re kids enjoy the water park or arcade. We need a spring break at Castaway Bay!
With a full resort, including 237 rooms and suites, a 38,000-square-foot indoor waterpark, a fitness center, 6,000-square-foot arcade, a craft and child activity center, three restaurants, retail shops, adjacent marina and space for meetings, group events and birthday parties, there’s so much to do here to keep your kids busy! In fact, you may never hear the words “I’m so bored” for as long as you’re here.
One of the best things about Castaway Bay is that you can swim and water slide any time of the year, whether it’s 30 degrees or 90 degrees because it’s always a pleasant 82 degrees at Castaway Bay. Not all of us can afford to sweep our kids away to a tropical island, but we can make the easy drive to Castaway Bay and spend the weekend like we did.
The rooms and suites at Castaway Bay feature a private deck or balcony with most of their rooms, a flat screen television, free wireless internet, a microwave, a mini-refrigerator and coffee maker. For larger families, many rooms have access to adjoining rooms.
Their rooms are clean, have plenty of space and are nicely decorated. Their bathrooms are stocked with Bath & Body Works brand soaps and, because of the amenities such as the fridge and microwave, can save your family money should you decide to bring your own food and eat in the room.
