New water park called Morgan’s Inspiration Island in San Antonio, Texas has been designed especially for people with mobility issues.
The water park is part of Morgan’s Wonderland, an accessible theme park in San Antonio that opened in 2010. Owners Gordon and Maggie Hartman named it after their daughter, Morgan, who has both physical and cognitive disabilities.
“Our goal is to provide a great guest experience in an inclusive, safe, comfortable, not-overly-crowded environment,” says Gordon Hartman.
Every part of the park is wheelchair-accessible and children with “special needs” can enter the park for free. The park even has the ability to quickly change the heat of the water in order to accommodate guests who are sensitive to the cold!
Hartman said his parks are built on input from the community. He said he consulted with doctors, parents, teachers and special-needs therapists.
