A new water park in Texas, Morgan’s Inspiration Island, made it a point to include all children when they were designing the attractions! Every part of the water park is accessible by wheelchair and children with special needs don’t need to pay for admission.
They have thought of the most innovative ways to make the park as safe and fun as possible. Waterproof wristbands with radio-frequency identification are available so that parents can constantly monitor their children, and the park even has a temperature-controlled area to accommodate children with sensitivity to the cold.
In order to make this park the best that it could be, the team met with as many experts, physicians, park professionals, parents, teachers, caregivers, and consultants. The park even offers a specific area where guests in wheelchairs can stow their personal wheelchairs and switch to using waterproof wheelchairs to better enjoy the park. The new wheelchairs don’t use batteries and are instead propelled by compressed air, meaning that children who could never get their chairs wet would now be able to experience the park and all it had to offer.
Morgan’s Inspiration Island promises to give individuals with physical or cognitive special needs a place where they can splash and play without barriers,” the owner, Gordon Hartman, said.
While some parks might have wheelchair accessible areas, Morgan’s Island Inspiration took the concept to an incredible level, and people are excited.
