Everyone who has been in a water park knows what amazing fun it can be.
It’s not just an adventure for the whole family – it’s also a great way to cool off in the summer heat.
However, most water parks are not exactly designed for people with disabilities.
Until now. The Morgan Inspiration Island has opened – a water park specially built for people with disabilities.
The whole park, which opened on June 17 in San Antonio, Texas, is wheelchair accessible and is designed to give all children a chance to fully enjoy various water games and pools.
Waterland Morgan Inspiration Island has a tropical theme and offers six major rides, including a wheelchair-adapted flow ride and large spaces with geysers, water cannons and rain showers.
But best of all? All persons with disabilities are welcomed into the park – free of charge.
“Our goal is to give all guests a good experience in a welcoming, safe, comfortable and not too crowded environment,” the founder of the park, Gordon Hartman, told Mashable.
The park also gives all children a waterproof bracelet with GPS, so parents or personal assistants can easily follow and find the kids if needed.
Private, quiet areas are also available for children who are vulnerable to crowds and too much noise.
The park has also been designed with water conservation in mind – water is continuously filtered and recycled, ensuring all visitors that they can be confident about the water quality.
Waterparks catering to people with disabilities do already exist around the world, but are restricted to just one or two pools adapted to their needs.
That’s why Morgan Inspiration Island is being considered the world’s first waterpark that is truly inclusive.
What do you think about this idea? I thought it was amazingly well done! Wouldn’t it be nice if more people thought like the owners of this park?
