What can you do at Hydrous Wake Park?
At Hydrous Wake Park, not only can you try cable water ski wakeboarding, but they also have an Aqua Park setup that you can enjoy.
What is the Hydrous Aqua Park?
It’s a giant inflatable obstacle course on the water, sitting on a 1 acre lake. They have inflatable slides, monkey bars and balance beams!
Cost: 2-hour Aqua Session, $18 per person. Group rates are available, making it perfect for a birthday or special occasion.
How can we try the Hydrous Wake Park?
The cable system allows you to navigate the 5-acre lake without the use of a boat and must be pre-booked online for a 2-hour session, and a waiver must be completed before arrival.
Starting at 12 noon, with a beginner session (18mph speed), at 2 pm, 4pm, and 6pm, the speeds vary based on level of expertise and experience.
If your child is 6 years old or under, they will need to attend a first-time lesson before using the main cable system.
For Kids who are 7-9 years old, they need to have attended a first-time lesson or a summer camp before riding the cable system. 10 years or older do not need to have completed either option, but it’s highly encouraged.
Cost: The beginner session is $35 per person (rentals are included in this price), prices vary for more experienced riders and rentals.
Group rates, private sessions, and full park rental packages are also available to book.
Is there a place to eat or purchase drinks at the Hydrous Wake Park?
The Little Elm location has two great restaurants close by – the Towers Tap House for an American-style menu and Hula Hut, offering tex-mex.
Can I book Lessons and/or Summer Camps?
First-time lessons are a must for kids aged 9 or below and start at $45 for 25 minutes, but they do offer a discount on their first beginner main cable session.
Summer camps also begin registration in the Spring and are perfect for ages 7-15 and are available in both Little Elm and Allen.
There are many options to choose from including 1/2 day mornings, Monday to Friday, from 8.30 – 11.30am. A single day costs $80 on a Wednesday, Thursday or Friday and a full week is $350.
