At 30,000 square feet of indoor fun, Moose Mountain Falls includes two water slides, lazy river, plus activity & splash pools. I certainly wouldn’t let this crisp fall weather keep me inside though – there’s really nothing like watching the stars light up the cool night sky while relaxing in the indoor/ outdoor hot tub!
