People will disabilities often miss out on some of the fun amusement parks and water rides that we take for granted. But a new water park in San Antonio, Texas is now allowing people with disabilities to cool down and have fun just like everyone else and it’s just perfect now that that summer’s here.
BRING ON THE WATER WORKS
Until now, the only water works people with disabilities saw came from their eyes out of frustration for not having a water park that was accessible to people who were disabled. But that’s changed now.
CHANGING THROUGH INSPIRATION
Morgan’s Inspiration Island is bringing fun back to the disabled by becoming the world’s first water park designed specifically for people with disabilities, and it truly is a magical wonderland. Take that, Disney!
A SPLASH TO REMEMBER
Individuals with physical or cognitive disabilities can finally have a safe space where they can splash and play without any walls holding them back from loads of fun and entertainment.
MORE WATER, MORE FUN
Park founder Gordon Hartman wanted to provide his guests with an inclusive, safe, comfortable, and not-overly-crowded environment, and he succeeded beyond anyone’s wildest dreams.
IT’S AN EXTENSION OF LOVE
Morgan’s Wonderland is a 25-acre theme park in San Antonio, Texas that was designed with special-needs individuals in mind, but built for everyone’s enjoyment. Eventually, Hartman decided to create the water park extension to beat the hot Texas weather.
HE’S ALL “HART”
Hartman named the park after his daughter, Morgan, who also has disabilities. As a dad, he knew how difficult conventional parks were for children with disabilities and wanted to make things easier for the kids and their parents.
LENDING A HAND
The creation of Morgan’s Inspiration Island wasn’t a one-man job. Hartman got plenty of help from doctors, parents, teachers, special needs therapists, and caregivers to ensure that the park was just right.
FUN FOR EVERYONE
They keyword here is fun, and everyone should have the right to experience that. To that end, Hartman ensured that the park catered to people with all types of disabilities so no one would feel like they’ve been left out.
IT’S OH SO TRACEABLE
Parents don’t have to worry about their kids getting lost in this water park wonderland because the venue offers to place tracking bracelets on their kids allowing parents to locate them at any time.
RIDING IN STYLE
The park also provides a series of air-powered, waterproof wheelchairs known as PneuChairs, which parents can rent for free to give their kids greater mobility without any hassle, because the name of the game here is to have fun and lots of it.
