White Water Bay Waterpark at Six Flags Fiesta Texas, San Antonio

Did you know that Six Flags Fiesta Texas has a waterpark, and that it’s FREE with your Six Flags Fiesta Texas ticket?  White Water Bay Waterpark is a GREAT way to keep cool during a summer visit to Fiesta Texas, and it’s conveniently located right inside the park, so you can just drop your things off in a locker, go have fun riding the rides and come back and take a plunge in one of over 10 fun slides, a lazy river and a HUGE, Texas-shaped wave pool!

White Water Bay is FREE, and open daily during the summer, and then for a couple of weekends in September.

You do enter through the Six Flags main entrance, so it’s easy to ride some rides in the morning, spend the day at the waterpark keeping cool, and then ride again in the evening!

The new ride for 2017 is Thunder Rapids Watercoaster, and I’ve been excited about riding it all summer!  I love water coasters!

It’s fantastic, and here’s a great tip!  Go single rider!  Our family of 5 saved at least an hour by skipping the main line and going single rider!  We didn’t get to ride together, but we still loved it!

Lone Star Lagoon

Where else can you jump waves in Amarillo, but the Texas-shaped wave pool at White Water Bay in Fiesta Texas!  It’s HUGE!!  The waves are great, and you have LOTS of shallow beach area, because Texas is just SO big!

I’m always surprised how large it is!

The White Water Canyon is a fun lazy river, with lots of waterfalls!  Tubes are free.

Typhoon Twister and the Paradise Plunge

Fiesta Texas is built inside an old quarry, and just like the rest of the park, they make use of the dramatic cliffs to make their rides even more thrilling!

Splash Water Springs

Located at the top of White Water Bay, Splash Water Springs is made to resemble an old Texas town, Splash Water Springs is a fun place to cool off.  The water is shallow, making it great for younger children!

Texas Treehouse

Another great place for kids to keep cool is the Texas Treehouse, with all sorts of fun places to climb and play, all while keeping cool!

Of course, there is a pirate ship, too!

As big as White Water Bay is, and let’s be honest, on a Sunday afternoon it was CRAZY CROWDED, we were still able to find a table relatively easy.

We LOVE our new private safe, that allows us to skip paying the OUTRAGEOUS PRICE for a locker!  It’s big enough for my phone, keys and credit card, compact to carry through the park, and attaches securely to a table or chair!  At just about $20, I think it’s a great deal, especially with FREE shipping from AMAZON PRIME!  Click HERE for more information.

Be prepared to wear some type of foot covering, because the concrete is crazy hot!  I never wear shoes at waterparks, but I HAD to here.  I had flip flops but I hated leaving them at each ride and pool.  They were my only shoes and if they disappeared I’d be running out of the park barefoot!   Some kids were just running around in their socks!  Grab some cheap watershoes at Walmart, or try out these crazy adhesive foot protectors, which seem great for the beach or waterpark!  They protect your feet without giving you funky tan lines!  I ordered mine, but forgot to take them with us, so I don’t have a review yet!  Click HERE to read more!
