Safari Joe's is an indoor water park just off of I-94.  Sanitysation of Pendleton, IN had this 4 our of 5 stars review,

Great fun

Can you say warm water!! So nice to be in a waterpark that was not cold. No freezing complaining kids. It was wonderful for my old bones! I didn’t even get in the hot tub. The only complaint was they were probably overwhelmed with the crowd during Christmas break & the bathrooms were nasty.

#1.  Frosty Boy

This what Sher A from Hartford had to say in here 5-star review of Frosty Boy on Yelp,

Sometimes you have to wait but the ice cream is good and the place has small town charm.  Prices are reasonable and the fancy dipped waffle cone with a scoop of ice cream is yummy!  Frozen yogurt is always good too.  Nice variety of summer treats.  Right off of exit 41 and a short drive to The park in Watervliet.

Frosty Boy is also ranked #1 out of 15 places to eat in Watervliet on TripAdvisor.
