Raptor Reef Indoor Water Park

Wave pool at Raptor Reef

175 W. Orchard
Hayden, Idaho

Located in Hayden, Idaho as part of the Triple Play Family Fun Park, Raptor Reef is a massive indoor water park that’s easy to miss if you don’t realize it’s there. Stopping here makes for at least a half-day pit stop, but it’s well worth mentioning because of its availability to the public (unlike many other indoor water parks attached to hotels such as nearby Silver Mountain Resort, where you must be spending a night to enjoy the waterslides).

Says a member of the parent review site Trekaroo, “This is a great place for my 7,4,2,and 6 mo. old to play. It’s small enough that I feel comfortable letting my 7 year old go on the slides, and I can play with the other children in the kiddie area. The facility is clean, and I think the lifeguards do a good job of watching the pools.”

Raptor Reef houses a wave pool, multiple slides of varying lengths, hot tubs, and a climbing structure/aqua-play. Note that there are height restrictions for the bigger slides. Don’t forget to bring towels (or be charged $2) and swim diapers (required for all guests under age 2).
