Head East: Cascades Indoor Water Park at Greek Peak

We’ve been to the Splash Lagoon in Erie, PA and The Grey Wolf Lodge in Ontario.   Cascades is just down the road a piece in the Cortland area.  With the White Water Wave Pool, Big Bear Falls and the Rapids, it’s worth the drive.  Bonus, if not everyone in your family likes to ski, this adventure is a great alternative.
