LAKE TRAVIS, Texas (KXAN) — A floating adventure water park is opening on Lake Travis on Friday, June 29.
Lake Travis Waterloo Adventures, located on the eastern shores at the lake, features a 600-foot water playground offering more than 70 obstacles, including climbing walls, monkey bars, slides, hurdles, balance beams and bridges.
The park says the $50 admission includes the boat ride to their adventure island, 45 minutes on the floating obstacle course, followed by unlimited access to their adventure island, which has a free fall slide, springboard jumping tower and 24-foot wide trampoline.
You can buy a second session on the floating course for $10, the company says.
The park, located at 14529 Pocohontas Trail, is the same starting point for Lake Travis Zipline Adventures, which John A. Shipley and Brian F. George — the team behind the water park — also created.
The adventure island also offers food and beverages, including wine, beer and frozen drinks.
“While this new water park is great for everyone from kids to wannabe Ninja Warriors, one of the best features is its beautiful location,” said George. “We want to provide an opportunity for Central Texans to escape their surroundings and soak up 1000 feet of incredible lakefront and hillside views. Adventure Island will make you feel like you’re on vacation at an exotic location."
Park hours will be from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. from Thursday to Monday through October.
Lake Travis Waterloo Adventures says its guests are required to know how to swim and must wear a provided life vest, and anyone under 18 must be accompanied by their parent or legal guardian. You must be 7 years old and at least 45 inches in height to enter the water course.
The $50 admission is the same for adults and children, and reservations are required, the park's website says. For more information, call 512-614-1979 or visit www.waterlooadventures.com.
