The metro's outdoor water parks have dried out for the season, but those seeking a chlorine fix can get one year-round at Holiday Inn SE – CoCo Key Water Resort (9103 East 39th Street, 816-737-0200). Three water slides and a lazy river wind around inside the hotel, where it's always 84 degrees, and you can swim up to the Wet Rooster Bar for an alcoholic beverage. The catch: The indoor tropical paradise is usually overrun with little kids. But the little people are banned on Adult Night at CoCo Key
. Enjoy a tween-free aquatic experience from 9:30 p.m. to 1 a.m. while a DJ spins for those 18 and older. See facebook.com/hicocokey
to buy tickets and (why not?) reserve a room for $49.
