There is something so fun and exciting about visiting a waterpark, no matter how old you are. The rush of sliding down slides with water splashing in your face causes a minor adrenaline rush that keeps thrill seekers coming back for more. And we all know that there are large waterparks in the bigger cities around the state of Texas but there are a couple of the best waterparks just down the road from us in Tyler, Texas.  

Visiting a waterpark in Texas is almost a necessity, especially in the scorching summer months. They are a wonderful way to cool down and get out of the house, for parents they are especially nice as they take the energy out of kids when they are out of school. Visiting a waterpark can almost feel like a mini vacation because they offer so many attractions, food and beverage options, and are always a perfect way to create fun memories.
