July 28th is National Water Park Day, so why not look inside the best outdoor water park in Iowa and the best outdoor water park in Illinois? First we need to determine the answer to the question, what are best water parks in each state?

For Iowa, that's easy. Lost Island Water Park, located in Waterloo, Iowa, is an easy 2 hours away from the QC. Besides the fact that last year it was USA Today's Readers Choice second best water park in the country, it is the largest water park in Iowa. Plus, you'll see in a second with your own eyes why it's the best in Iowa, if not the country.

On the Illinois side, Milwauke Journal, Enjoy Illinois, and many other websites say that Raging Waves is the best and biggest water park in Illinois. Raging Waves is also only 2 hours from the QC in Yorkville, Illinois.

First, let's take a look at Raging Waves.

To the Iowa side we go. Let's take a look at Lost Island.
