📍 Wild Waves Theme and Water Park: 36201 Enchanted Pkwy S, Federal Way

The rain-soaked world of the Pacific Northwest makes us less likely to have drive-in movies and amusement parks than other locales. However, the Wild Waves theme park has combined the two outdoor activities with its Dive-In Movies series. Held every Thursday from June 20th to August 29th, guests can relish watching a film from inside a wave pool. The series features a selection of G and PG-rated movies that park attendees can catch on a giant LED screen. Guests can float on a tube or lounge in a chair to enjoy a variety of family-friendly flicks.
