The Texas heat is coming, and we all know when summer is in full swing, the best way to cool off is by spending time in the water.

While swimming in the pool is a classic option, sometimes you want to experience something a bit more exciting. You want to body surf in a wave pool, conquer the biggest slide you’ve ever seen, or simply float a few laps in the lazy river.

That is where Texas waterparks come in.

The Lone Star State has a great variety of waterparks with different amenities from massive rides, great kid’s areas, and even an entirely indoor park.

Of course, Texas waterparks have to stick with the classic ‘everything is bigger in Texas’ saying, so these parks are absolutely huge with so many slides and other water features to enjoy.

The kids are sure to have a blast, parents can lounge, teens can soak up the sun, and so much more.
