Six Flags Hurricane Harbor
Just across the street, Six Flags Hurricane Harbor (1800 E. Lamar Blvd., 817/640-8900, www.sixflags.com, daily in summer, 10:30 a.m.–7 p.m., weekends in spring/fall, $22–28, parking $10) bills itself as the largest water park in the Southwest. The park’s 47 acres are overflowing with water rides, slides, and pools.
Millions of gallons of water propel, glide, and douse visitors on more than a dozen rides. Highlights include the Tornado’s funnel-shaped waterfall ride, the Black Hole’s gushing water tubes, the amusing and appropriately named Mega Wedgie, the 12 levels of activity in Surf Lagoon, and the Bubba Tub inner-tube ride.
