Lake Travis is already among the favorite spots for Texans to cool off from the summer heat, but thanks to a colorful, floating water park, the lake is about to get a lot more popular.

Waterloo Adventures partnered with Wibit — the creators of inflatable water parks — to build a floating water park and obstacle course that will feature "over 21 different elements [that] are sure to test your agility and skills," according to the Waterloo website.

Visitors of the park will have access to a 45-minute session on the obstacle course to conquer elements like hurdles, balance beams, bridges, monkey bars and more. When that time runs out guests can enjoy unlimited access to the aqua park area and play on a water trampoline, slides, climbing walls, or just float around on the complimentary saddle floats.

The new park is slated to open June 29, just in time to make plans and reservations for the Fourth of July weekend.

In early June 2018, a similar park also built by Wibit but owned by an unaffiliated company opened in Grapevine, Texas, claiming to be the largest floating water park in the state.

However, according to Brian George, one of the owners of Waterloo Park, once the Lake Travis park opens, it will take the claim for the largest inflatable water park in the state.
