May 9, 2011 at 8:09 pm EST

 Located in Mansfield, which is a short drive north of Midlothian, TX, is Hawaiian Falls, a water park that delivers thousands of gallons of fun.

The park offers activities for all ages and activity levels, from thrill seekers to those who just want a cool place to lay in the sun.

The newest water ride at the park is the Torpedo, which sends people nearly straight down a launch tube and spits you out. The launch is sudden and the acceleration is intense. Keiki Kove is a massive interactive water/rain fortress with pulleys, rope ladders, water buckets geysers, three slides and a bucket that dumps 1,000 gallons of water throughout the day. The park also features a wave pool, lazy river, tube slides, four-lane water raceway, twisting, turning tower slides and the Hightide Whirlpool, which swirls riders around and flushes them out the bottom. Hawaiian Falls is open from Memorial Weekend through Labor Day.
