splish, splash 

If the smell of gunpowder lingers on your skin from all the patriotic explosions you light over the weekend, wash it off with a chlorine bath at one of the metro's many water parks.• In addition to the high-speed slides and the rides named for nature's most dangerous water phenomenon — not to mention the proximity to the roller coasters at Worlds of Fun — Oceans of Fun (4545 Worlds of Fun Avenue, 816-454-4545) provides adults with their own pool and swim-up bar. One-day adult passes (to Oceans of Fun only) are $28.99.• Water-balloon wars and a 35-foot steep slide are among the attractions at Super Splash USA Water Park (53rd Place and Raytown Road, 816-356-5300). Admission is $10.• Wild rivers and twisting tubes wind through Schlitterbahn Vacation Village (9400 State Avenue, 913-312-3110), which debuted in Kansas City, Kansas, last summer. Adult ticket packages for this outdoor park start at $30.99.• CoCo Key Water Resort (9103 East 39th Street, 816-737-4754) is Missouri's largest indoor water park. The slides, saunas, whirlpools, simulated coral reef and more are all located within a Holiday Inn. But you don't have to spend the night to take a dip. Day passes are just $10 Monday through Thursday.
Starts: May 31. Daily, 11 a.m.-7 p.m., 2010
