#InstaKC Captures is a blog series that highlights some of the most photogenic sights in Kansas City. From iconic monuments to lesser known gems, we tour the city in search of some of the best places to take a snapshot.

Summer is here, which means water parks throughout the region are open once again and ready to cool off customers with wave pools, lazy rivers and twisty-turny slides, all great for Instagram action shots. 

Thrills Await

June means that Oceans of Fun is back for its first full month of water park thrills. Slide, float, surf and more in an awesome atmosphere that attracts thousands thanks to its limitless thrills.

Plus, with the one park, one price structure, you can switch from waterslide to roller coaster and back again all day long.

Friends Forever

More than anything, KCK's Schlitterbahn is all about family-friendly entertainment, whether it's slides, endless rivers, a surf ride, a chair lift zip lines or plenty more sunny fun that everyone can enjoy.

Snag shots of friends and family all throughout the summer to preserve memories—and show off all the good times that you had.

Indoor Splashes

For those interested in staying inside on extra hot days, head to CoCo Key Water Resort right across the highway from Kauffman Stadium. KC's largest indoor water park even includes an arcade and restaurants.

Or, head to KCK's Great Wolf Lodge, a popular destination exclusive to those who stay at the resort. Capture pictures of kids traversing their way through more than a dozen attractions.
