Castaway Bay Indoor Water Park + Giveaway!

Until now, I had never really been to a big waterpark. When I saw a review of Castaway Bay on another blog, I knew that I had to go. Castaway Bay is a huge indoor waterpark in Sandusky, Ohio that is right by Cedar Point. There is so much to do and it is truly like a full resort. We arrived Saturday late morning and did not leave at all until we checked out the next day.

You could not check into your room until 4 PM but are allowed to go the waterpark early. We got changed in the locker room and went right to the park. Seeing my daughter's eyes right when we walked in was my favorite part. At just 17 months old, she got so excited and was not scared at all. We started out in the toddler pool which was perfect for her.

It was only about a foot deep which was perfect for her to walk around in. There are a couple of slides in this area that were perfect for her. We brought my sister along with us which was so fun. We had one person stay with Adalyn and two people go off together to the water slides or other activities for older ages.
I loved the water slides so much! They were fast, thrilling and so much fun. I felt like a kid again. My sister was obsessed with the wave pool which was like being on the beach. Adalyn really enjoyed this as well and her face lit up each time a wave came.


Besides swimming, we went to dinner at Quaker Steak and Lube and were very impressed by the menu. I got a salad with grilled chicken, nuts and a bunch of fruit. I loved it! My sister got a chicken fajita salad and Troy got a burger which he said was one of the best burgers he had ever had! The prices were very affordable too with each meal being around $11.00.


The room had plenty of space. My sister was pretty cool staying on the top bunk in the "kids" room haha. There was a huge walk in closet that we setup Adalyn's pack and play in to give her a quiet, dark space. She actually slept quite well! I was amazed.


We had an awesome view from our room with a lake beneath us with lots of different birds. Adalyn loved pointing out the ducks which is one of the 20 or so words that she knows.


After dinner, we went to the water park again and noticed that it was less busy around 7 PM which was nice. The rides had no wait then which meant that we could go on them more frequently. Then, we went and got changed into our pajamas and went to a dance party on the 3rd floor at Club Castaway.

This was Adalyn's first dance that she had been to and she had a blast. It was adorable seeing a bunch of little kids dancing. My husband who loves to dance had a blast too! They also had lots of other kid activities going on such as karaoke and coloring t-shirts. This was awesome for those who do not want to be at the water park the whole time.


Even though it was past Adalyn's bedtime, we stopped for some ice cream at Ebb and Eddy's which is located near the check-in. They give you a huge amount of ice cream for only $2.50. I was surprised that the food at the resort was not crazy overpriced like at some places.


After Adalyn went to bed, the three of us had a great time having some wine, playing Cards Against Humanity and then watching a movie. The next morning, we had an awesome egg casserole that my sister made. We went to the water park for a couple hours more and then headed home.

It was an amazing weekend and I will definitely be returning. I love that you can go hang out in your bathing suit in 82 degrees when it is literally snowing outside. Seeing Adalyn have so much fun is priceless to me. The adults had as much fun as the kids making it a vacation for all.

  23. My husband and I have been talking about doing a little more traveling. We need to get out a little more. If we could go, we would invite our daugher/hubby & 2 girls (3 yrs & 5yrs.)and son/girlfriend also to go along. All would truly love that. It looks like a great place to just enjoy hanging out together as a family!
