Just inside the entrance, there is a little splash area with fountains and the water runs downhill to form a little stream that ends in a small pool. Nicholas and Rachel went hog wild playing in these fountains.
It’s not like they can’t do this at the fountains just down the street from us anytime. And they seemed clueless about the rest of the waterpark just waiting to be explored.
We played on some waterslides in the little kid area. Rachel was so proud to be able to go down all by herself.
Daddy and Nicholas decided to be adventurous and go down the Green Extreme waterslide. It’s the world’s largest uphill waterslide. It is a seven story tall waterslide with 1,161 feet of twists and turns! Nicholas and Daddy rode together on a two-person innertube.
They were both smiling when they finished and Nicholas said it was “awesome!”
Time for lunch! We brought our own picnic lunch and found a great spot under some trees.
After lunch, we relaxed on the lazy river.
Some of us define “relax” different than others.
Beachside Bay is a small beach swimming area at the park complete with a 5,300 sq. ft pool, beach volleyball and waterfalls. The kids just loved making sand castles.
The kids area was fantastic. It’s called Frogstein’s Splashatory and it’s the largest interactive water playground in the state of Texas. It includes 5 levels of water fun for all ages including 6 water slides, interactive water activities and a giant tipping beaker that pours gallons of water on your head each time it fills up. Doesn’t it just look incredible?
We used a waterproof disposable camera to get these shots because you just can’t help but get drenched here.
Rachel spent a lot of time in the toddler area.
…while Nicholas walked on floating lily pads and floating logs…
Nicholas had a great time walking on the logs. It looks easy at first but then you notice how the logs can easily glide away from you just as you take a step. I think Nicholas really liked it because he loves watching that silly competitive show called Wipe Out.
Finally, we played in the wave pool. It was really cool to float around in an inner tube while being sloshed around in ocean-like waves.
NRH2O is a great place to spend the summer as a family. There is just so much to do here that everyone can find hours of fun keeping cool and wet.
