When your kids crave a break from museums and city streets, consider this mega-water park where everyone can cool off in summer and play in the snow in winter. Located in Valcartier, about 30 minutes from the city, this popular and often-crowded park features 35 waterslides, two lazy rivers, a wave pool, bucket dump, plus eateries and lounge chairs. Preschoolers can wiggle down a pint-sized slide and play in the water sprays at Cockadododle Farm (La Ferme CocoRico). Teens like to plunge down Everest, a 110-foot high waterslide and swirl through the Medieval-themed Dungeon City river ride.
In winter, Everest morphs into a snow slide and you can also go snow rafting, sledding and skating at the park.
