Summer will be here before you know it. And anyone who has been in the Texas heat for at least five minutes knows that if you’re going to spend any time outdoors, you’d better be submerged in water. If you have children in your house of any age, you are going to love Splash Kingdom Family Waterparks. And I can say this from personal experience, because I have been taking my crew there for years now as my children transformed before my very eyes from toddlers to now teenagers. This year marks 10 years since the first Splash Kingdom location opened in Canton, Texas. There are now six total locations including Canton, Hudson Oaks, Amarillo, Nacogdoches, Shreveport and soon opening in Greenville. We frequent the Canton location because it is pretty close to us.
There are several things that make a day at Splash Kingdom a really good experience. The size of the park is perfect. It is big enough to offer a little bit of everything from thrill slides to relaxing waters to pint-sized play areas. But it’s small enough that I am not thrown into a massive sea of people, constantly panicked about where my child is or having to walk three miles back to my car. This is truly a family water park whose mission is “to glorify God while providing a safe and fun recreation experience for families”. When you spend time at Splash Kingdom, you will see that they do accomplish exactly that. I love the Christian music that is played throughout the park because it makes such a difference in the atmosphere. They have food for purchase throughout the park, but you can also bring your own picnic and eat at a table just outside the park.
My babies used to love the Kid’s Castle play area. As my children have gotten bigger, now a friend and I can perch ourselves in lounge chairs and send the children off to ride stuff with the understanding that they’ll check in with us. And yes, we still sometimes pick lounge chairs by the Kid’s Castle just to watch the other babies and reminisce about the days gone by. The safe atmosphere, size of the park and staff attending the exits, gives a mom of tweens a little extra breathing room to let the kids do their own thing. And this summer for the first time I’ll have not one but TWO teenagers that I will be able to drop off for several hours of water park fun on their own. This is a safe place to give your kids a little more freedom. But even my teenagers won’t ditch this mama for all summer. Because I don’t wanna miss out on all the fun, and I believe there are more memories to be made for our family at Splash Kingdom.
