America's Coolest Indoor Water Parks: Wings & Waves at Evergreen Aviation & Space Museum

Wings & Waves at Evergreen Aviation & Space Museum, McMinnville, OR

Sure, this water park’s 10 slides, 2,000 feet of sliding surfaces, and 91,000-gallon wave pool deliver thrills, but they’re also designed to inform about the power and science of water. Kids can build “tsunami-proof” models in classrooms and test them in the wave pool. And along the climb up 111 stairs to the Boeing 747 on the roof, posters explain how the plane “landed” there. The plane is the starting point for four water slides, including one that drops six stories. evergreenmuseum.org
