Atlantis Water Park


Atlantis Waterpark located in Centerville, Virginia, is a long-standing summer tradition. The park offers two water slides: an exciting 170-foot closed slide where visitors will slide down in complete darkness, and a 230-foot open slide that will have your kids grinning ear to ear. 

The park’s enormous main pool is a great place for families to swim and splash around all day. For little tots, Atlantis provides a play island with small slides located in the main pool. 

An incredible dumping bucket, water cannons, and sprayers are all located in the center of the park.

The park ensures that even the smallest family members have an opportunity to splish-splash in the baby pool and play area. 

With all that running around and calorie burning, visit Neptune’s Reef, complete with all your favorite meals, snacks, and drinks. Take a break and sit under the shaded umbrellas while enjoying your lunch. 

Atlantis is an awesome place for families to spend quality time together on a warm Virginia day.

Monster Mini Golf


Monster Mini Golf in Chantilly is the destination for family fun! 

Monster Mini Golf is 18 holes of glow-in-the-dark mini golfing encircled by a virtual wall filled with amusing local artwork. 

While golfing, families can interact with animated monsters who talk and produce some of the oddest sounds you may ever hear. Vibrant beats of classic and new music flow through the speakers while you golf your day or night away.

Monster Mini Golf is much more than just a place to golf. 

The monstrous arcade offers games like Spongebob Squarepants, Jurassic Park, and Down-a-Clown arcade games. Classics like Skee Ball and Glow Air Hockey, along with modern games like Deal or No Deal, are just a few games you’ll find at the arcade. 

Shorter lanes and lighter bowling balls allow everyone in the family a chance to enjoy Monster Mini Golf’s bowling alley. No special shoes are required. Just grab a bowling ball and show off your expert bowling skills!

The family-fun center also includes a laser maze, virtual reality, ropes course, and Stella’s Kitchen, where you can refuel between games.

The Foam Zone lets kids take enormous leaps with a soft landing. They can try all the daring stunts they want while safely landing on a cloud of foam.

Let the Ninja warrior loose with the brand-new Ninja Warrior Course. Kids and adults can put their athletic abilities to the test in the obstacles that assess your speed, strength, and agility.
