There is an Hawaiian Falls in The Colony and one in Garland. There is NRH20 in North Richland Hills. The big one is in Arlington across from Six Flags. Cities have nice water park type pools - smaller, of course. There is one by Rowlett High School and one by Lewisville High School. Plano has a couple. Allen's is indoors. Garland also has a wave pool that's fun.

Hurricane Harbor in Arlington is the largest, and so has the most slides. It's directly across I30 from Six Flags.

Also, Great Wolf Lodge in Grapevine is very expensive, plus you have to stay at the hotel in order to go to the water park inside.

Biggest with most rides--Hurricane Harbor in Arlington.

One you'll have the most fun at and get to ride the most stuff--I vote for NRH20 in North Richland Hills.

Great Wolf is fun and the lines aren't going to be long but it's really pricey for what you get and there aren't too many rides there.

Older kids... Hurricnae Harbor hand down the best.

for the younger set...10 and under NRH2O is good. (our 11 & 13 yearold got bored last year but the 8 year old loved it)

Great wolf lodge... smaller alot for the younger kids but really only a few "big slides" and the lines for those will get long.... plus yes it's expensive since you have to get the hotel room etc...

$$$$$$ You MUST be a guest at the lodge to visit the water park. Not a whole lot for older kids. No outside food or drinks can be brought into the waterpark area either. There is NO late checkout for the hotel either (very few times will this be accomodated) so going to the room for lunch and snacks is not always an option and the hotel is expensive.

Hurricane Harbor is good but since it is the largest and the location it also can be the most crowded.

There are TONS of waterparks in the area so it just takes visiting a few to see which ones your family likes best. I like the one that is the closest to my house (Hawaiian Falls in Garland) because it is close. My most favorite waterpark is the pool in my backyard as it is hardly ever crowded, super convienent and I can use my own food and drinks
