On my Summer “Big Bucket” List was a trip to Bingemans Big Splash. Earlier in the Summer my daughter and I visited King’s Island Amusement Park and enjoyed their wave pool so much that I started looking for local wave pools to try out!
Local radio station Country 106.7 had a contest to win tickets to their Bingemans Big Splash “Country Splash Down” event day in July and we won a family four pass!
That day was rainy and just as the kids were in their suits and ready to swim, the skies opened up and the pool was closed! We got dressed and headed inside to watch the kids play on the climber and slides. My son with Autism did not understand why we couldn’t swim and he was very upset, but the climber and slides calmed him down and he had a lot of fun.
Soon, the rain ended and the sun peeked through, but we still didn’t get to do too much swimming that day.
Later in the Summer, I won 4 passes from 91.5 The Beat radio (they have a fantastic call in contest tied to their Top 9 at Noon). I tried for about 2 weeks and finally got through and won the 4 splash park passes and a family pass to African Lion Safari (stay tuned for that review in a few weeks).
We picked one of the forecasted hot and sunny days in August to return to Bingemans Big Splash.
No rain this time, and the day was just beautiful. My daughter is timid about rides, so we didn’t go on any of the big slides, but by the end of the day she was happy to slide in the Bucket area.
Both kids had the best time. My son really enjoyed the bubble pool to the side of the wave pool. Later in the afternoon it started to get super crowded and we headed home with lots of happy memories!
