Is Hawaiian Falls Garland and The Colony Suitable for Toddlers and Younger Kids?

It’s a big park that features attractions such as wave pools, tube slides, and family raft rides. It’s great for babies too and has several play areas for young children, which are shallow and shaded in parts, including the Keiki Kove, which has a big bucket of water that periodically dumps a huge amount on you when you least expect it!

Big kids over the age of 12 are not permitted so it’s a very comfortable space for our little kids to enjoy.

For younger kids around 4-6, some of the slides may be too big for them, but the wave pool and Kona Kooler lazy river are great options. A child who is 48 inches or taller can ride everything.

Hawaiian Falls Garland and The Colony has free floating tubes and lifejackets of all sizes, but if you have one at home, you can bring it with you. You can also bring an infant flotation device that has a seat in it, but leave other inflatable floats and pool noodles behind.

What are the best slides at Hawaiian Falls?

We love the fact that all the most popular slides are at Hawaiian Falls The Colony with some being open at Hawaiian Falls Garland. The best slides at the park are the Hawaiian Half Pipe, the Wild Wave, and the Big Kahuna tube slides. Many of them are steep!

The Bonsai Pipeline allows two guests to drop from a tall tower and twist and turn down to the bottom and the Pineapple Express is also popular.

The Garland location is smaller than Hawaiian Falls The Colony.
