Maybe you're looking for something to mix up the fun so I wanted to share! Runaway Rapids Water Park looks like a great way to spend a hot summer day for adults AND kids! I'm ready to feel like a kid again...LET'S GO!

Water water everywhere...that's what we are known for at the Jersey Shore but sometimes you want to mix things up with a slide, swirl or lazy river while looking at the ocean instead of being in it. This is that place!  Runaway Rapids Water Park is by the beach and part of Keansburg Amusement Park.  Kids can go nuts on the slides and mom and dad can do the lazy river or take a dip in the hot tubs! Yes, please.

The park also has a designated area for little ones, which is great to give adults their own space.
Kind of love lounge chairs being by the pool so your older kids can play all day and you can chill!

Watch your friends and family play as you lay back, tan, and yes, mom and dad, have a drink.

I thought tickets were pretty affordable too: $33 for three hours, and $18 for the little ones. By the way, when I lounge I always want some eye candy scrolling material so here is a list of the most famous actresses from the year you were born...who matches your year?

Many of the actresses in this story not only made a name for themselves through their collection of iconic performances, but also through the selfless, philanthropic nature with which many of them approached their stardom. In an age of flipping the script on societal norms, many of these actresses are using their voices and platforms to be advocates for those who are otherwise unheard.
