The Rapids Waterslides

Think you have what it takes to tackle The Rapids? Cascades has 4 water slides to choose from.

Interior Slides – Our two interior slides, labeled as Rapids 2 & 3, are over 100 ft. long and 2 stories high. These slides are designed for children and young adults 42-48″ tall and under 130 lbs.
Interior/Exterior Slides – The adventurous can take on our two 3-story enclosed slides, labeled as Rapids 4 & 5. Our body slide is 250 ft. long and goes outside the building before re-entering to splash down in a pool below. Alongside is the tube slide, which lets you ride a one or two-person tube. This ride also travels outside the building before landing in a pool back inside the Waterpark. You must be 48″ tall to ride either of these slides. Children and young adults 42-48″ tall may ride the tube slide if accompanied by an adult (18 yrs or older).

Northwoods Pool is our 1,500 sq. ft. outdoor swimming pool that is heated and open year round! Swim laps, or just float along, no matter the season!
