Waterparks throughout the U.S.

There are currently over one thousand waterparks within the U.S., most of which identify as stand-alone outdoor waterparks. Some waterparks are part of a larger resort and vary in whether they are indoor or outdoor. Additionally, there can be regional variation in the distribution of waterparks in the U.S. - as of 2018 the Midwest contained the largest number of indoor water parks in the United States. However, the West contained the largest number of stand-alone indoor waterparks in the U.S. at that time.
