1. EPIC WATERS – GRAND PRAIRIE
Beat the heat this summer (or all year-long) at the nation’s largest indoor water park, Epic Waters! Located in Grand Prairie, Epic Waters features 80,000 square feet of thrills, family fun and even a lazy river for relaxing. Capacity is limited on weekends and holidays, so consider purchasing tickets in advance.
This neighborhood play area is a blast to visit year round! But what’s even cooler is Dove Park’s admission-free spray park—where kids get to splash under the huge water dump bucket while parents chill by the shaded benches. Oh, and did I mention that it’s free?
You can never go wrong with this indoor waterpark! Great Wolf Lodge is open year round, and no matter the weather outside, the temperature here is kept constant. A six-story funnel ride, a wave pool, and even hot springs pool are just some of the many fun attractions you get to enjoy here.
4. HAWAIIAN FALL – THE COLONY
We celebrated our son’s second birthday here, and all of our guests loved it because there’s something for everyone! At Hawaiian Falls, kids can play around at the toddler-friendly Keiki Kove, while adults get to lounge by the cabanas at the Breaker Bay. The best part is cooling down at the Kona Kooler lazy river!
Six Flags is almost synonymous with summer fun, so you can’t miss paying Six Flags Hurricane Harbor a visit! They have kids rides like Hook’s Slide, family rides like Hook’s Lagoon Treehouse, and for the daredevils, thrill rides like the Black Hole. Need we say more?
This high-end resort pool complex at the Hilton Anatole is perfect for a staycation getaway! What we love about it is that both adults and children get to have fun here. There’s plenty of activity pools for kids, a swim-up bar for adults and a lazy river that everyone can enjoy!
When you combine one the best-selling toys of all time with a fantasy adventure, you get this amazing water playground where kids can splash around the Legoland shipwreck. Plus it’s conveniently located at the Grapevine Mills shopping center (yes, moms, it really is the best of both worlds)!
We love the variety of activities at NRH2O! Among the extreme rides and the kid-friendly water playgrounds, the white sand beach area, Beachside Bay is my favorite! While you’re there, treat yourself with an Oreo churros by the Al Gator’s Smokehouse!
Recently renovated, Paradise Springs is now bigger and better and perfect for enjoying a weekend getaway. The Texas-themed resort water park features a lazy river and interactive water attractions for kids including a toddler pool and a giant zip line. The best part though, is the full service pool bar and grill!
Cool off before or after your next visit to the Fort Worth Zoo. For an additional $5 with regular admission, you can enjoy this 14,000 square-foot splash pad filled with adventure! From slides to animal-shaped water cannons, your little ones with have plenty to soak up the fun with.
