    There’s a saying with kids, just add water. Whether you're battling boredom, bad attitudes or just need a break in routine, water is the cure-all.

    And now your family can access New York’s largest indoor water park in less time than it takes to watch Finding Nemo. Just 90 minutes North of NYC, the brand new Kartrite Resort in Monticello ditches the traditional themed indoor water park vibe for clean, modern simplicity with attractions for the whole family.


    The 80,000 square foot water park is bright and airy, thanks to the world’s largest texlon transparent roof, keeping the temperature at 84 degrees of perfection all year long. Home to 11 different water-wonders, there’s something for everyone. For the daredevils, there’s a surf simulator and high-speed slides. The Puddle Ducks toddler pool is perfect for the little fishes. And the winding lazy river is ideal for a more relaxing adventure. And don’t forget to take a dip in the indoor/outdoor hot tub pool that’s open year-round.


    When you’ve had your fill of aquatic adventure, change into some dry clothes and explore the land-based activities.

    Check out the arcade or one of the many family-friendly activities offered throughout the day, including sand art and doughnut decorating. There’s plenty of adult-fun too! Grab a drink from one of the many bars at the resort, sit out by the fire pits at night, or take a break from sliding in the state-of-the-art spa.


    After all that fun, there are plenty of options for fueling up. From a casual buffet to a contemporary restaurant, a waterslide-side snack shack to an old fashioned ice cream parlor, even the pickiest eaters have options.

    The prices for the rooms are comparable to its competitors in Pennsylvania and offer a variety of room configurations- from king beds to bunk beds making room-sharing more than doable. Most of the rooms have balconies or patio space as well, perfect for taking in the beautiful Catskills.


    So if your family is in need of a wet and wild getaway that’s just a hop skip and a jump away, be sure to add Kartrite to your family fun bucket list.
