What is there to do?

Who's excited for summertime! We KNOW you are, because that also means swimming time!

Cascade Falls Aquatic Center is a fun and splashing family aquatic center in Iowa which the whole family can enjoy. 

Open from May to September, this water fun attraction has a host of activities and water fun for all ages. First - the water is heated! We LOVE that (we're not very good with cold water either...it's always just the toe!)

If you have younger water babies in the family, then check out the zero depth entry pool which is great for those learners, as well as the cute kiddie slide which no height restriction. Everyone should be able to enjoy a good slide!

Water fun is abound with features like the floor geysers and water cannons which kids will love exploring, and for those who just want to take in the atmosphere and relax a little, check out that popular Lazy River!

Feeling like you want to practice those strokes you learn in class? There is a lap pool for those over 48" with a diving well and drop slide too, so you can celebrate perfecting your latest stroke with a drop slide! Amazing!

The Swirl Bowl slide is super fun for those older kids, and there is even a Flowrider surf machine for those over 42" which gives you the feeling of surfing in that open ocean without actually having to venture out there!

Parents, they have you covered too with lounge chairs and in-pool shade, so you can just relax back and watch the kids have a splashing time!

Cascade Falls Aquatic Center is waiting to give you that summer fun YOU have been waiting for all winter! Let's make a SPLASH!
