kids at water park

August in Kansas City means we can expect many things: heat and humidity, school starting, and a looming Labor Day weekend that means all of the area pools will be closing. We wanted to put together a list of our favorite swimming spots so you and your family can keep cool while you still can — or need to with fall just around the corner.

Super Splash USA

Super Splash USA is one of the best kept secrets in the area. The “Finest Little Water Park in America” has three water slides, three pools, lots of shade, play areas and plenty of space to hang out. You can find Super Splash in Raytown at 53rd Place and Raytown Rd. For more information, click here.

Oceans of Fun

This Kansas City classic has been a destination for summertime fun since 1982. The water park features thrills and spills for people of all ages. Everything from kids play areas and lazy rivers to adults-only swim-up bars and towering water slides are sure to please guests with any level of daring. Click here for more information.

Schlitterbahn Kansas City

Schlitterbahn is the new kid on the block here in Kansas City. The water park features the world’s tallest water slide, the largest “tidal wave river,” and many chutes, tubes, beaches and rivers for all to enjoy. To learn more, click here.

Leawood Aquatic Center

The Leawood Aquatic Center is one of the best places to go for a swim in the Kansas City area. The public pool offers swim lessons, aqua fitness, a water slide, and is an all around great place to play. Click here for more information about this Kansas City-area spot for fun in the sun.

With all of these options to beat the heat, you’re bound to find something that strikes your fancy. At Aardvark Air, we love to get out and play. Share your favorite KC-area pools and water parks with us on Facebook.
