This week in Indiana has been hot. HOT, hot. VERY, VERY HOT.

Did I mention it’s been hot?

There are lots of ways to beat the heat during the summer, but nothing else compares to having some time to cool off in the water. There’s really nothing like a dip in the pool on a hot summer day. As a mom, I know that water play is the best way to let your kids play outside without getting overheated. And water play usually equals really good naps!

Because it’s been so hot, you can imagine how excited I was to be contacted by Deep River Water Park. I had no idea that just a couple hours north of Indianapolis, there’s an amazing family-friendly water park. Deep River Water Park is located in Merrillville, Indiana, so it’s close to Indy, Chicago, and Southern Michigan.

Deep River has a wide variety of attractions for the whole family. They have everything from the easy and calm river rides to the suspenseful and exciting speed slides. There’s tube rides, a beach volleyball area, and there’s even the Paddles PlayZone for little ones to play safely. There’s a Rip Tide Wave Pool, and lots of great options when you’re ready to take a break and eat some lunch. Deep River Water Park has enough attractions to make a full day of fun for your family.

And don’t think that the fun stops once summer is over! In the winter, Deep River opens up for ice skating. November through February you can come and skate in the same place you splashed and played during the summer months.

Deep River is an affordable option for your family. Their rates are very reasonable, and if you’re an Indiana resident, you get a $2 discount! They also offer some great season passes and packages, and an awesome deal on Mondays: bring 2 non-perishable food items, and get a discount on admission ($5 for adults, $3 for kids under 46″). You can have fun and help feed the hungry at the same time.

I have been given the opportunity to visit Deep River this month, and I can’t wait to come back and share my experience with you. However, the thing I am MOST excited about is that I get to offer one lucky reader a FAMILY FOUR PACK that includes 4 admission tickets and 4 $5 food and beverage bands. That’s a value of over $110!
