Nothing says Summer like a trip to the waterpark! A good waterpark will keep the entire family entertained with plenty of fun options – I found just the place for family fun this summer, close to our Akron and NE Ohio readers at Pioneer Waterland & Dry Fun Park!
Pioneer Waterland & Dry Fun Park is located in Chardon, Ohio which is a quick trip for anyone in NE Ohio for a full day of fun in the sun! Not only is it a full service waterpark but also a Sportsland Fun Area which is all included in general admission. This is more of an amusement park than anything and so close to home!!
You get a full day of fun included with admission including a spring-fed activity concrete “pond” with fun activities including water volleyball and water basketball.
In this giant pond, there is a 60 foot water obstacle course and giant water floatables. This will keep kids active all day! I know my kids love the floatables at other water parks but they are always so small, this looks amazing!! Who is ready for a challenge?!
The concrete “pond” is just huge with so much to do! There is even an exciting Dinosaur Slide and Elephant Slide that your kids will LOVE! Just look at these amazing structures popping out of the water. If you have young children, no worries, there is a Kiddie Waterland with plenty of swimming and splashing fun including slides and a raining mushroom. The young children area is sectioned off so your little one won’t accidentally venture off into the deeper waters. It is a spacious area for kids and parents to hang out together.
Another amazing feature of this Ohio water park is their huge lazy river. This spacious lazy river wraps around Adventure Island for a relaxing float down the river. This is the perfect way to rest and get your kids to rest a little while during the day of active fun. It is one of our favorite spots, we generally float on the lazy river a few times during our visit. I’ve even seen moms holding babies/toddlers during naptime floating around a few times! ha!
No waterpark is complete without exciting 6-story high waterslides! This Ohio waterpark has plenty of thrills for the adventurous including Twin bonzai speed slides, thriller spiraling waterslide, screamer spiraling waterslide, and the ever-popular black hole enclosed dark slide! With four to choose from, the lines are never too long so you can zip down the waterslides as many times as you dare!
This amazing Ohio waterpark goes beyond typical waterpark offerings and has many extras for your family to enjoy at no cost at the Sportsland Fun Area including:
- Golf driving range cages
- Air cannon shooting range
- Water cannon war zone
- 18-hole miniature golf course
- Bankshot basketball course
- Sportsland basketball arcade
- Sand volleyball
- Tot land Tot-Land Play Area. Ride-on Toys Crawl-through tunnel
This place is amazing and what a value too, we’ll get to the pricing in a moment below. I love that this waterpark has so much for families and friends to do together both in the waterpark and in the dry park area. There is even free paddleboat rides on the 6-acre natural lake! My kids always love paddleboats!
Nobody will go hungry at Pioneer waterpark either with plenty of food options at Splash Landing Eatery including burgers, subs, pizza, wings, walking taco, chef salad, value meals, fries, pretzels, nachos, and plenty of sweets including funnel cakes and ice cream.
You are even allowed to bring outside food and beverages (excluding alcohol) into the park! I love how family friendly this waterpark is, especially if you have kids with allergies or just want to bring your own food. There are even plenty of large grills located throughout the park if you’d like to bring a whole picnic for your family, just don’t forget your charcoal and lighter fluid. How awesome is that?!
Even though there is a ton of things to do that requires no additional charge, Pioneer Waterland and Dry Fun Park knows that some people love their toys like go-karts! For an additional charge, you can spin around the Grand Prix go-kart supertrack (1/4 mile track!).
You can also hit up the Professional batting cages, Fun zone game arcade, and S.A.F.E. Archery for an additional charge.
As you can tell, this Ohio waterpark has it all – and then some! You will want to go several times this summer for sure, or a couple days in a row. Plan a few days at Pioneer by standing in their campgrounds. In fact, receive special ticket pricing when you camp at Pioneer.
