How have I never heard of this place? It looks so cool.

It's the season for splashing in the waves. Luckily, you don't have to go too far to get your summer fun fix. There are plenty of pools and splash pads in and around the QC, but this waterpark in Waterloo was a little bit off my radar. Now I can't wait to visit.

Lost Island is two hours from Davenport, but from the looks of it, this epic park is worth making the trip for. The water park boasts several major water slides, a wave pool, kid's area, mini putt, go karts, and what they describe as "extreme thrill water rides." I haven't ever seen this many water attractions in one place, outside of Wisconsin Dells.

Oh, and HUGE bonus for families out there: Lost Island offers free parking and tubes. Now that's what I like to hear.

Instagram users seem to love Lost Island, too. Check out some of their pictures below:
