The Waterpark at The Villages in Texas is quite small by industry standards. It lacks the more thrilling and noteworthy attractions of larger indoor water parks such as a surfing ride, an uphill water coaster, or a bowl ride. It does, however, offer basic water park fun, including a small wave pool, a lazy river, four water slides, and an interactive water play station with a dump bucket.
The Aqua Playscape area is especially appropriate for toddlers and younger visitors. The water park has a glass roof and walls to maximize the outdoor light. The retractable roof can be opened during warmer weather.
The water park is part of The Villages a condo resort. Owners and guests at the resort receive discounted rates and preferred access to the water park, but the general public is welcome at the park as well. Other features at the park include a party room, a gift shop, and a snack bar.
