America’s first ultra-accessible waterpark has just opened its doors to the public on Saturday.
The $17 million San Antonio waterpark, Morgan’s Inspiration Island, has dozens of features that make it the most handicap-accessible park in the country.
The park, which is a nonprofit organization, offers special passes to kids who have trouble waiting in lines; the water temperature can be adjusted for guests who have sensory issues; the water is constantly filtered and reused for kids with immune issues (and for the environment); all of the rides are wheelchair accessible; and every visitor with disabilities is given free admission.
Children who have a tendency to wander are given waterproof wristbands with GPS so parents and staff can easily locate the youngsters in the park, if necessary.
In order to prevent overcrowding, admission to the park is also limited. Parents are encouraged to purchase tickets online in order to guarantee attendance.
