    Had to tell you about the Mayan Adventure waterpark in Elmhurst. Its all indoors and attached to a hotel. My boys love it and I love being able to stay the day and not worry about sunscreen and broiling hot pavement! http://www.thewavertonhotel.com/mayan-adventure-waterpark/index.cfm

    Just a little correction for you…Splashdown is in East Peoria. Little bit of difference because you don’t cross the river. Just in case someone tries to load it into their GPS and gets confused. Thanks for the website!!
