Just two hours north of NYC and one hour south of Albany, Zoom Flume Water Park in the Catskills is an excellent way for families to cool down from late June through Labor Day. The park includes multiple play areas for small children like Pelican Pond and the Lagoon Activity Pool or the Lazy River for anyone looking to relax. If you’re in the mood for adventure, tube down the twists and turns of the 600-foot Wild River ride or race travel companions on the Zoom Flume or the Grand Prix Splashway, both with multiple lanes. The snack bars serve pizza, hamburgers, hot dogs, sandwiches, and more and there is a picnic area right outside the entrance for those who would like to bring their own lunches. Lockers, dressing rooms, season passes, and group discounts are available.
