    We are visiting in October and can't decide on which water park to go to. Our son is 7 and just started swimming without a lifevest this summer. He is over 48 inches tall. Which would be better for him?

    Hi Elaine!

    Thank you for visiting the Moms Panel!

    I think Typhoon Lagoon would be your best choice, with plenty to entertain your son.

    At Castaway Creek, the 2100 foot circular river, you can all enjoy floating along through a rainforest, and caves and grottos.

    For your seven-year-old there is also plenty of enjoyment to be had at this water park.  Ketchakiddee Creek has everything for little ones to enjoy - slides, fountains, waterfalls, mini-rapids and much more, all in a safe environment.

    Full details of all the attractions at Typhoon Lagoon can be found here.

    If you have any other questions, please come back and ask me - I would be happy to help you plan your magical vacation!
