While patrons can enjoy outdoor water parks only during the summer months, indoor water parks provide year-round amusement for guests. Of the two indoor parks in Texas, one is close to Dallas: Great Wolf Lodge, a combination water park and resort located half an hour's drive from downtown Dallas.
With themed activity pools and kiddie slides for juvenile guests, and full-sized water slides, lazy rivers, and hot tubs for teens and adults, the indoor water park at Great Wolf Lodge features many amusement options for the entire family.
