When it comes to waterparks in Texas, there are a lot to choose from. Schlitterbahn, NRH2O, and Hurricane Harbor at Six Flags are the places that come to mind. But the newest one, Splash Kingdom Waterpark Wild West in Hudson Oaks, is a little closer to home. So I decided to check it out.
If you're like me and you love waterparks like Schlitterbahn and NRH20, you may have Action Park to thank for it. What could be considered the beta test for "extreme waterparks" in the U.S., Action Park in New Jersey opened in 1978 and completely blew away people's notion of what a waterpark should be at the time.
