Looking for a great weekend getaway, when the weather calls for rain this summer?
Then, consider booking a room at the Sheraton Ferncroft Hotel in Danvers/Middleton --- home to CoCo Key Water Resort, New England's only Indoor Water Park.
The grand opening of the 190,000-gallon, four-slide, 65,000-square foot water resort was yesterday afternoon. Hundreds of families got to try out the four water slides ranging in length from 286 to 353 feet (some enclosed). Invited guests also experienced floating along a 320-foot-long adventure river; feeling the rush of 300-gallons of water from a bucket, that tips every seven minutes from the Parrot Perch play structure; and splashing and sliding around in a very, kid-friendly dip-in theater area.
There is no general admission for families, without booking a hotel room, which start at $159 a night for a family of four.
CoCo Key is booking for birthday and private parties (post June 15), field trips, and group outings, too. Party and outing admission ranges from $29 to $45 per person.
