Wow, $28 to go to a water park these days? You can sure tell that i don't have kids. Even at Goldstar's half-price deal, it's still $14.31 including tax for an all-day pass to Water Park of America, across from Mall of America.

The offer is good from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday July 12, or Monday July 19, or Monday July 26.

For more information about the park and its 10 story liquid bull ride, the surf simulator, a wave pool, a lazy river or slides, go to the website.
