Eastern Iowa Attraction Up For Major Award – But Needs Your Help
One of the biggest tourist attractions in Eastern Iowa was nominated for a prestigious award, and now they really need your help.
For years, Lost Island Waterpark has been a go to family spot during those warm Iowa summer months. This waterpark has also been recognized nationally multiple times.
The business even earned itself a 2022 Iowa Tourism Award for Outstanding Individual Leader. Now, the park just made it onto a nationally acclaimed list of some of the best attractions in the country.
For the past six years, Lost Island has been mentioned in USA Today's top 10 outdoor waterparks in the country. It's gone up against major players in the theme park industry like Disneyworld and Dollywood.
The Eastern Iowa park is back up on this list and the team behind it needs your help to win!
A panel of experts pick the top ten list and then readers decide which of these nominees gets to win. Last year, the Waterloo waterpark came in second in the final vote, right behind Aquatica Orlando.
This time, Lost Island is coming for the gold...
