The water park is great. I wouldn't recommend booking room online though. I did last Spring and was expecting a nice, new, and non-smoking room in the western theme part of the hotel, but instead the stuck me on the top floor of the old Holiday Inn. It was a non-smoking building, but everyone on that level was smoking. I couldn't sleep due to the sounds of the freeway and the sounds of what ever machinery I could hear from the ceiling. It was absolutely dreadful.

I thought this indoor waterpark resort was kind of neat and a very pleasant surprise! Though it’s relatively quiet during the winter season, it still fills up on the weekend with both families looking for some fun and business travelers seeking an alternative to a boring business retreat. The property has a variety of room set-ups to entertain every kind of guest – couples, families, and even suites that will accommodate parties of 12! The bigger the room, the nicer the perks (like in-room fireplaces and lofts). The waterpark is great fun for kids and adults because this is definitely one of those “something for everyone” resorts. There’s a restaurant and bar on the property, as well as event space for meetings or family reunions. I think this would definitely be an awesome location for a wedding party of fun loving kids-at-heart who enjoy a little touch of Western flair.

When I was a kid, I always loved the Indian/Cowboy western flicks so I really liked seeing the western theme throughout Fort Rapids. All of the rooms have different western touches, like log cabin bunk beds for kids or cowhide wallpaper in the bathroom. Considering you’re in a waterpark, I thought it was perfect that among the amenities, the rooms include small, personal dryers for your swimsuits. The Branding Iron Grille was roomy with a nice theme menu and the Copper Star Saloon offers adults a place to hang out and have fun as well. There were also a pool table and other arcade type games to entertain a group of kids. There’s a gift shop/convenience store in the hotel, so really Fort Rapids is one of those destination resorts where you can go for the weekend and do everything you want without having to leave the property.

In a suprising part of Columbus Ohio's South East side lies a regional day of fun at Fort Rapids. Ohio has long been book marked by Cedar Point and King Island but Columbus has been left dormant of theme park fun outside of Wyandot Lake which is seasonal ( Wyandot Lake is now Zoomambi or something like that) Fort Rapids is a small indoor waterpark with a set of conference rooms, a restaurant, and bar. The resort is divided between Villas suites with large sitting areas multiple bathrooms and bedrooms. Then there is the tower side which though I didn't see were advertised as your more standard room packages. The restaurant prices were fair. The business center was roomy for more than 4 desks. The waterpark was great fun! A lazy river, a large cyclone funnel tube ride. 5 speed slides, a bucket dump climbing gym, water sport pool, kiddie area and adult spa zone. All in all a solid weekend of fun, but a day pass is purchasable if you live local.
