HOUSTON - Throughout the summer, KPRC2 will be featuring Houston's many water parks in hopes of inspiring fun for you and your family.

Sunday's featured water park: Hurricane Harbor Splashtown

The slides: Among those for thrill seekers are the Big Spin and Paradise Plunge, but there are also two interactive areas for kids as well as a lazy river and some rides the whole family can go on together.

Kid-friendly rides: There are a variety of rides that are idea for kids. They are:

  • Coconut Bay: Minimum height for a child is 50 inches tall. Kids can play in their own version of the wettest thrills when they will step into Coconut Bay, the new interactive children's area.
  • Tree House:  There is no minimum height. The Tree House offers three stories of interactive fun where kids can climb net ladders, slide down slippery slides and get soaked as a 1,000-gallon bucket dumps water over everyone below.

POLL: The #StingrayRacer has 6?? slides. Which is fastest? Tell us the lane number and vote ?? for red and ?? for blue!
