Imagine 365 days of 84-degree temperatures. Now imagine that same year-round balmy weather in Erie, Pennsylvania! Enter Splash Lagoon, Pennsylvania's only indoor water park - guaranteed to turn even a dreary wet day into a warm tropical paradise.
Located just 90 miles north of Pittsburgh in Erie, Pennsylvania, the Splash Lagoon resort complex includes Splash Lagoon Indoor Water Park, Laser Tag Arena and Arcade, and several hotel properties connected to the water park. The indoor water park features the latest and greatest rides in the water park industry, set in a South Sea Island atmosphere with palm trees, tropical plants, and flowers.

  • Five-story Million Dollar Tree House (with 12 levels of activities)
