Raging waves is far away enough to feel like a vacation but close enough for a great day trip. Took about an hour and 15 mins to get to from Chicago. The place is only 4 years old so it is still clean and nice (unlike Deep River in Merrilville IN or Magic Waters in Rockford-ick). If you don't want to eat there, no problem, there is a Wendy's, Culver's, McD's, BK, Jewel-Osco, all within a few mins away. Only dissapointment- the kid's playpark has 4 slides and a child has to be 42" tall to ride the 2 taller ones, 36" for the 2 smaller ones. My son who is 41" was not allowed to slide down the 2 at the top and was very upset. They are allowed to climb all the way up there, wait in line, then be denied a ride down. I understand rules are in place but at Kalahari in Wis Dells he was riding way longer slides as long as he had a life vest on. It would be nice if they had similar rules. So just keep this in mind if you are bringing smaller kids.
