Entering the water park is so exciting. Because the crowds are low you can see the whole park thought out the day without the stress of long lines. We started at the 600-square-foot Lazy River. We floated the river and passed through waterfalls, water fountains, and the current makes it “lazy”. My little guy swam the river several times so you don’t have to be “lazy” in this river. But you are welcome to sit back and let the river take you away!

Next we visited the back section which included 6,000-square-foot family lagoon with a 27-foot waterslide and zip line, along with two horseshoe-shaped hot pools, and a dedicated toddler pool.Texas Waterpark at Gaylord Texan in Grapevine Texas - Paradise Springs
