Everyone knows that Texans love to float down rivers every summer. But sometimes Texas rivers are just too murky and muddy to fully enjoy! If you're looking for the coolest new spot to chill and enjoy a nice float down a river, we have just the place for you. The BSR Cable Park in Waco has the longest lazy river in the world, according to Texas Hill Country, and you can float down it for the best summer trip ever.
This man-made lazy river guarantees that you will have an amazing time relaxing with your friends while you enjoy the summer breeze and cool water. The lazy river is almost a mile long and you can make the loop as many times as you wish. It takes about an hour to clear the entire river, so just by doing 2-3 laps you'll be out on the water for over 2-3 hours!
*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.
We know you're wondering if you can bring alcohol and drinks to enjoy while you float on the giant lazy river and we are happy to say that you can! The only rule is that all drinks have to come in a plastic or aluminum container, as glass is strictly forbidden. Now you can enjoy a beer or a plastic cup of rosé while you float down the longest lazy river in the world.
You can even make your trip into a full weekend of fun by staying in one of their rentable cabins so you can float and swim all weekend long. They also have their own restaurant and bar so you can take a break from the water to have a tasty snack or meal.
For an all-day pass out on the gorgeous lazy river, you can buy one for only $25. This gives you access to the park all day long and unlimited loops down the clear, beautiful river. The park is open from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. every day of the week.
The BSR Cable Park is located at 5347 Old Mexia Rd, Waco, Texas. For more information on the park and to plan out your trip to go floating, you can visit their website here!
