Fallsview Indoor Waterpark Packages

July 17th, 2015

Everyone wants to go to Niagara Falls, Canada, contending it’s the “best side” — not just because of the panoramic views, but also because the area offers a wealth of falls-front hotels, restaurants and attractions. One of the most popular attractions for families is Fallsview Indoor Waterpark, which offers 16 waterslides, a spray ground, wave pool, restaurant and more.

Waterslides at the Fallsview Indoor Waterpark

Conveniently, the water park is connected to three hotels, and just a few steps away from another. These properties, situated on Falls Avenue and part of Canadian Niagara Hotels, offer easy water park access, plus packages that combine overnight accommodations with tickets to the park. Consider these hotels for your family vacation to Niagara Falls.

Skyline Inn
Skyline Inn provides a private, enclosed walkway to Fallsview Indoor Waterpark. The hotel, which touts Family and Bunk Bed Suites, offers two water park packages. The Waterpark with Breakfast Package includes one night’s accommodations for two adults and two kids, four two-day passes to the water park, and breakfast for four at Perkins Family Restaurant. The Waterpark Getaway Package includes a one- or two-night stay and four passes to the water park. Guests of Skyline Inn have access to the pools at Sheraton on the Falls and Crowne Plaza Niagara Falls – Fallsview, too.

Sheraton on the Falls
Sheraton on the Falls offers beautiful views of Niagara Falls, and is directly connected to Fallsview Indoor Waterpark through a series of walkways. It offers a Family Waterpark Package with one or two nights’ accommodations and up to four water park passes. On select dates, the hotel may also provide extras with the package, such as tokens for Adventure City Arcade, four passes to the Adventure Heroes Laser Ride and the ability for kids to eat free. Guests of Sheraton on the Falls can also play in the pool at Crowne Plaza Niagara Falls – Fallsview.

Crowne Plaza Niagara Falls – Fallsview
The Crowne Plaza Niagara Falls – Fallsview is located next to Sheraton on the Falls, and also provides easy access to the water park. The Waterpark Getaway Package is available here, as well, with one or two nights’ accommodations and up to four passes for the water park. On select dates, it also includes the same extras offered at Sheraton on the Falls. Crowne Plaza offers beautiful views of Niagara Falls, plus a swimming pool and video games for rent. Guests of the hotel have the option to use the pools at Sheraton on the Falls, too.

Clifton Victoria Inn at the Falls
It’s not directly connected to Fallsview Indoor Waterpark, but the Clifton Victoria Inn is a quick walk away. It offers a Waterpark Dining Package, which includes a one-night stay; dinner at the Fallsview Grand Buffett or Rainbow Room (both at Sheraton on the Falls); and four passes to the waterpark.
