An indoor water park at a ski resort in Vermont with a 65-foot tall waterslide has been named among the best in the country by TripAdvisor users.

The Needham-based travel website released a list of the 25 best water parks in the U.S. last week as part of its 2019 Travelers’ Choice Awards. Jay Peak Pump House in Jay, Vermont, ranked No. 13.

Jay Peak Pump House has waterslides, a lazy river, kid’s play area, arcade, and snack bar. Visitors can also experience the Flowrider, which is a cross between skateboarding, surfing, and snowboarding, and tackle a waterslide called La Chute, “French for, you’ll scream your face off (or The Drop, whatever),” according to the park’s website. Riders on La Chute experience a 65-foot water slide, complete with a 360-degree rotation, at speeds of 45 miles per hour.


TripAdvisor pulled the following quote from its site about Jay Peak Pump House: “Amazing day and fun for everyone!!!”
