9 Reasons The Kartrite Turned Us Into An Indoor Water Park Family

Hopping in your car or on a flight to see one of the 10,000+ cities worldwide with your family might be on the top of your vacation list.

But sometimes you want a break from the part-time job planning a vacation nowadays. You want to get away close to home, have a blast with your kids and make fun-filled family memories without the hassle of vacation planning.

9 Things We Loved About The Kartrite

When talking to friends and family about our trip, we mention these nine things the most. Additionally, adults will appreciate the sophisticated, upscale design elements that make the Kartrite feel more like a premium resort and less like a kitschy children’s water park.

An Indoor Water Park Resort Can Be Fun And Stunning

When entering the water park itself, you’ll see the beautiful Catskills mountains views from a stories-high, clear roof. Additionally, the park gives off tropical island vibes with its 84-degree year-round temperature and abundant tropical vegetation throughout the rides and attractions.

1. Outdoor Play Space: Games, Obstacle Course, and More

We loved the courtyard area with a wooden obstacle course, ample lawn space, and three outdoor games to choose from. Each morning we went out to play after breakfast and enjoyed the oversized Connect 4, chess, and bean bag toss games.

2. Firepits Perfect for Smores

Make sure to bring smores ingredients, including sticks, from home. If you forget, Pop’s Sweet Shop on the lower level of the resort sells kits with everything you need for a Catskills mountain evening around the fire.

3. On-Property Hiking Trails

You’ll see signs for Kartrite’s five hiking trails near the oversized lawn games. With 6 miles of scenic trails that give you a taste of The Catskills’ beauty, pick from a gentle stroll on the Sullivan Trail or more adventure on the Thompson Trail or Togoggan Trail.
