Coco Key Water Resort in Kansas City is a family-friendly water park located inside the Sheraton Kansas City Sports Complex. Some sources may lead to the Clarion Coco Key Water Resort, but the park is the same although different area sites seem to have some confusion with the naming. It's a newer facility, but with 55,000 square feet of water park entertainments, there simply aren't two of them to be found.
As part of the hotel complex, the Water Resort is available free of charge to all hotel guests with their room rate (varies between $129 - $189 for doubles). However, it is also open to the public. Several non-guests complained about the $20 per person daily rate during the week, which goes up to $25 per person on the weekend. Bargain hotel buyers with large families may find an overnight stay cheaper than a guest pass.
For the money, full access is granted to the Coco Key Water Resort. Attractions include slides and entertainment options for all ages. There are areas specially designated for younger children, with shallower water, more gentle slides, and high staff levels to ensure no mishaps occur. Older children and adults will enjoy the option of high-intensity slides and wave pools as well as lazy river tubing and wading options.
A new attraction is the Dip-In Theater, which is like a drive in theater but with innertubes instead of cars serving as seats. This is the latest of several multimedia features at the park. Some of the wading pools and grottos have backgrounds that shimmer and change, are musically themed, or have moving visuals. The combination of sounds, activities, interactive stimulus and hundreds of thousands of gallons of water is sure to impress and entertain even the most recalcitrant sibling into having a decent day of entertainment. Kept toasty warm year-round, the park also offers a winter retreat for those looking to recapture the days of summer during the big chill of winter.
