We decided last weekend to escape the usual excitement of Road Race weekend and head up to New Hampshire. Along the way we stopped in at Liquid Planet Water Park in Candia, NH. The waterpark was themed as an outer space alien adventure. We were sad to have arrived the day prior to their Star Wars day but we did get a chance to pose with R2D2 when we entered. (Tip: Get their early as this place is very popular locally and as the day progresses more and more people arrive).
Liquid Planet has a water park, a zip line (which goes over a lake), and a mini golf course. We set up camp near the Fountain of Youth which consisted of around 5,000 square feet of interactive water toys for the kids to experiment with. There was a fun seesaw that sprayed water, a rock climbing tunnel , slides, water blasters and more!
The park also had 3 sets of water slides which even the littles could go on. The patrons have a choice of using a water mat or going without and we highly recommend if you are an adult to definitely grab a mat. They also have a new waterslide called: Shooting Stars where you slide down a 40 foot vertical drop racing a friend! Behind the water slides was Crater Lake which the zip line crossed. Crater Lake is a spring fed old fashioned swimming hole, complete with a waterslide floating out near the middle. We watched many people zipping over the water park and then over Crater Lake having a fantastic time!
Another bonus was the old fashioned galactic mini golf course which definitely presented a challenge even for the most seasoned mini golfer. We loved the fact that there were actual obstacles and tricks!
Liquid Planet Water Park is only open in the summer and will be closing on Labor Day. Our only negative was that we had not found this place sooner as it was tons of fun and definitely a hit with the smaller kiddos and we wished it was located here on Cape Cod (new business venture perhaps?). So next summer when you are heading north to camp or visiting attractions up this way, definitely make Liquid Planet a stop on your trip as it was fun, refreshing and definitely made our long drive easier!
