    Grizzly bear Jack’s in Utica is also an awesome indoor water park with an adjacent indoor arcade and fun area, lodge with kid movies, outdoor park area and putt-putt golf, bakery, and awesome villa lodges that sleep up to 8 with full kitchen. We just got home, and our kids loved it! Perfect for chilly weather, too. We will be going back this fall 😄😄 very affordable, and fun to bring friends or grandparents!
