Is it just me, or are water parks a constant exercise in overcoming one's fears? There's nothing quite like hurling yourself down a dark tube while water splashes you in the face, before you swirl around an over-sized toilet-bowl that promptly drops you six feet down into water, from which you eventually emerge, totally and completely disoriented. I honestly forget every single time that I'm not claustrophobic until I actually am inside the water slide, at which point I realize that I'm not panicking and that, oh yes, I don't have claustrophobia. Remember?
Aside from having to overcome the same fear fifty billion times in one weekend, we had a nice time at the Kalahari Indoor Water Park in Ohio, and an even better time, since it was a free trip sponsored by J's company. It is absolutely overrun by little tykes, but they're so short, I couldn't even see them in my peripheral vision ;) Kalahari Resort also happens to be located rather near to Cedar Point but has the added bonus of allowing you to wear a swimsuit without freezing your tuckus off. Oh yeah. And it's open in January.
