The North Texas area isn't known for having any vast oceans or bomb surving waves but thankfully for us, there is a resort that fixes that issue in the coolest way. BSR Cable Park is just the place to go when the waves just seem too far away. The resort caters to all types of surfing skill levels from beginners to expert wave riders.
If you've never hit the waves before, you can take one of their classes starting at just $60 a lesson. You are also invited to hang out on their beach all day long without needing to actually hit the waves. Guests can choose to hang out all day catching some waves, or even spend the whole weekend at the resort's surf hotel which offers luxurious cabins.
*Editor's note: Since there have been issues with water quality at this establishment, make sure to contact local authorities before visiting this or any other water park.
BSR is also home to the world's longest lazy river. The river is almost a mile long which means you'll be on the water for a while. Visitors are allowed to bring alcoholic beverages as long as they are not in glass containers. An all-day pass to the lazy river is just $25, which gives you unlimited access to the river all day long.
One of the park's main attractions is their giant water slide named the Royal Flush. Guests on the slide are almost completely laying down before taking off down the slide, then into the air and then right into the water! The park is open from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. every day of the week. All guests not participating in any of the activities must pay a $10 entry fee.
The BSR Cable Park is located at 5347 Old Mexia Rd in Waco, Texas. For more information on the park and to book your cabin, you can visit their website here.
