Among the park's more thrilling aquatic attractions are the 75-ft tall, 132-ft long Tornado tube ride, and the five-story Texas Freefall. For those more inclined to keep their heads above water (as it were), the park offers plenty of more relaxing fare as well, including a 500,000 gallon wave pool and the meandering Paradise River.
Children of all sizes will enjoy the aquatic activity areas comprised of Wet 'n' Wild Jr., Treehouse, and the Blue Lagoon Activity Pool, which feature a number of wet and wild interactive water elements like spray cannons, tipping buckets, fountains, geysers, lily pads, and much more.
