When in need to escape the summer heat, seek the refreshing scene and assortment of pools at Splash Kingdom Wild West in east Weatherford, Texas, on a hillside along Interstate 20, bordering Hudson Oaks.

The park offers a western-themed variety of rides and attractions, including the Wagon Trail Springs with splash pad; a wave pool; a FlowRider surfing experience; and a relaxing lazy river, featuring 700 feet of continuous current and first-come-first-serve tubes to float.

The Snake Pit offers five exciting slides, such as the open-air King Snake and Copperhead, and the enclosed Green Mamba, Sidewinder and Water Moccasin.
