Where: Kihei, Maui, HI

Kids love to get wet. That's just one reason why the Wailea Canyon Activity Pool, the watery playground at the Grand Wailea, appears first in this gallery. Nine pools, six levels and 770,000 gallons of water make up this beachfront paradise on Maui. Paradise, you say? Try this: four intertwining water slides, a Tarzan pool with a rope swing (lower picture), six waterfalls, and the world's first water elevator (above) make up this thrilling homage to H20. There's even a Fishpipe, a 90-second rotating barrel ride in a bubble. You have to see it to believe it.
