We are always up for trying out new places for family fun so when we were invited to visit Bingemans in Kitchener, my family was totally excited. I had been years ago but had never been with the kids.
Thankfully we got a nice sunny day so it was a perfect day for the waterpark and we spent our entire day there. Big Splash has 7 different waterslides, a heated wave pool and a splash area so there’s something for everyone.
Besides riding the slides over and over again, we also enjoyed this about the water park:
- There is cool music pumping through the speakers all day
- Lots of loungers and chairs with shady areas available
- There is an ice cream hut on location as well as a snack bar but I love the fact that you can bring in your own food. We packed up a cooler with sandwiches, fruit, veggies and water and then hit the ice cream place for dessert.
- Staff is super friendly and attentive to the safety of all guests
- Bathrooms and the park in general were very clean
Beyond the Big Splash water park…
For sure, the water park was the highlight of our kids day but there are so many other things you can do at Bingemans. Included in your daytime entry, you can also use the pool, mini golf and beach volleyball. We loved the mini golf! As a competitive family, this course was a great family battle on this super cute course to see who would be victorious. I am happy to say that the winner was…. ME!
Onsite there is also Funworx which has video games, a climbing area and a ropes course. We barely made it there to play due to all the fun we had in the waterpark. The kids were a little disappointed because we didn’t have socks for them which is required on the climbing structure and neither were wearing close toed shoes for the ropes course. Now we could have bought socks but they were quite happy to play some video games, grab some fries and head back to our site for the night. KingPin bowling looked cool as well but again there was the time factor. That being said, when we return we will be sure to stay more than one night so we can make time to do everything.
Camping At Bingemans…
Because one day at Bingemans is not enough to take in all the fun, why not consider staying the night. In advance, you can book a campsite to tent or park your trailer or stay in a cabin or a yurt. We stayed the night in a Yurt for the first time ever and it was a cool experience!
In Yurt Village, you will find9 yurts that you can stay in if you are looking for a hassle free way to spend the night. The best thing we found with the yurt is that there was barely any set-up required. The yurt was equipped with 2 sets of bunks (single over single and single over double), a small table and chairs and a front locking door to keep all you valuables safe while you are away from the site. Thick canvas sides keep you protected from the elements with the side windows allowing for good airflow. Each site is equipped with a picnic table for outdoor eating or games and a fire pit for yummy nighttime snacks. Oh and the kids were excited that the yurt had an electrical outlet so they could charge their iPads for a late night movie. All in all it was a cool experience with an easy set-up. When asked if they would yurt camp again I got 2 really loud cheers and 1 cheer for regular tent camping. Whatever the liking, we can come back and enjoy Bingemans again in a tent or in a yurt and have a great time!
Thanks to Bingemans for hosting us for a fun time and we can’t wait to return in the near future!
