Summer Getaway Fun

Splashway Water Park

Splashway Water Park and Campgrounds is located in Sheridan, Texas, just about two hours away from The Woodlands to the southwest. Anyone looking for splashing, thrilling and good family fun would enjoy a day (or a few!) at Splashway.

The adventures at Splashway include an enormous wave pool that simulates the ocean, a smaller family wave pool to float in, toddler splash area, kids activities and a ton of waterslides that range from gentle to adrenaline-pumping. Younger kids can have just as much fun as their older siblings at Splashway, with three options to choose from – the Minnow Pond, Toddler Bay and Pirates of Kiddie Cove, all with maximum height restrictions. You can also rent cabanas and large tables to stay cool and accommodate parties or big groups.

The waterslides here come in a wide variety for different types of thrill-seekers. The gentle Hurricane Hill and Slippery Twister are a great way to ease your way into the day. Work up to the Jet Stream side-by-side racers, the Midnight Storm dark tube slide, and twin Tropical Storm enclosed slides. If you’re looking for more, try the Tubular Tornado tube slide that goes through tunnels before ending with a funnel spin, and the ultimate extreme Pirate’s Plunge slide has a 45 foot vertical drop that will have you defying gravity! If you’ve got the competitive spirit, grab three friends and head over to Ray’s Racers, a mat slide with four lanes to test your speed.

The waterpark makes for a perfect day trip to get cooled off during the hot summer months. However, they also have a campground nearby with spaces for tents or RV hookups as well as cabins available for rent if you wish to stay and play longer. Larger and extended families can stay together in one of the spacious cabins that sleep 10, and smaller groups will be comfortable in one of the Cozy Cottages. Even campers in tents have access to electricity and their own fire pit.

Those staying at the campgrounds have a full schedule of activities to choose from, such as ice cream and s’mores parties, nature outings, and bingo games. The grounds are pet-friendly as long as animals are leashed. A playground is perfect for younger kids and everyone will enjoy the outdoor movie showings. Catch and release fishing and paddle boards on the lake are a fun way to spend the afternoon.

With so much to do, it’s easy make Splashway a part of your summer vacation fun!  Find out more here.
