NIAGARA FALLS, Ont. -- If you're planning a family outing to an indoor waterpark this summer, why not go for the best and the biggest.

The 1.2-hectare Fallsview Indoor Waterpark -- North American's largest and part of Falls Avenue Resorts -- has been named Best Waterpark in Canada by TripAdvisor.

"We're very excited to have received a 2013 Travellers' Choice Award from TripAdvisor," said Sarah Vazquez, v-p of marketing for Falls Avenue Resorts.

Highlights of the waterpark include 16 waterslides, a giant wave pool, the Beach House Rain Fortress with a 4,500-litre tipping bucket, a year-round outdoor pool, Planet Hollywood Beach Club and more.

And an indoor walkway connects the waterpark to three hotels -- Sheraton on the Falls, Crowne Plaza Niagara Falls-Fallsview and Skyline Inn -- restaurants and other resort attractions including Hershey Chocolate World Niagara Falls, Hard Rock Cafe, Rainforest Cafe and Casino Niagara. The Falls are also nearby.

In addition, the resort's three-diamond Skyline Inn has also been recognized by TripAdvisor as Canada's top hotel for families. For info, see or
