One of the best ways to beat the summer heat is to hop in your new car from Jimmy Michel Motors and blast the AC. But a trip in the car is even more exciting when there’s a fun destination at the end, like Missouri’s own Hydro Adventures water park.
One of the water park’s most notable — and noticeable, thanks to the rainbow colors — slides is the Twisted Six, a series of six water slides that allow you to race five friends down a twisted, fun slope. Another water slide favorite is Poseidon’s Pipeline, which drops you right into a big splash pool at the end.
Looking for a more casual day? Spend your time soaking up the sun in the park’s lazy river or just float in a relaxing pool.
Water not for you? This water park offers more adventures than just the aquatic type. You and your friends and family can enjoy a day racing go-karts at Tailpipe Alley or fighting foes in a game of laser tag. You can even get your thrills up in the air on one of several carnival rides, like the roller coaster or the Scrambler. The park even includes classic carnival games.

Springfield is a remarkable place, for so many reasons. It’s got about as rich a history as any town and it’s a veritable playground for outdoorsy-types. Springfield also happens to feature a number of fantastic theaters. Here are a few of our favorites…
This historic theater is almost a century old. If that wasn’t cool enough, the Gillioz is actually located on Route 66! The building itself is a work of art. Built in the Spanish Colonial Revival architectural style, it also features an Egyptian/Art Deco interior. You can catch films here as well as concerts and Broadway productions.
Focusing on modern theatrical works, the Springfield Contemporary Theater offers an extraordinarily intimate experience for the audience. The theater only seats 87 people. Front row is only 16 feet from the stage. Located in downtown Springfield, you can catch modern productions like “Hair” and “Xanadu” at this theater.
Largely run by volunteers, the Springfield Little Theater is over 100 years old. By far the most popular of all Springfield theaters, the venue entertains up to 60,000 patrons every year. You can enjoy plays and musicals here as well as performances by the Springfield Ballet and Springfield Regional Opera.
