Morgan’s Wonderland: The First Team Park for Disabled People
Have you dreamed of an amusement park where special needs children and adults could participate fully, go on rides, and play with everyone else? Welcome to Morgan’s Wonderland, the world’s first large-scale theme park where accessibility is built into every square foot. Whether you are a parent in a wheelchair or have a child with Down syndrome, if you are blind or disabled in any way, this special park was built with you in mind.
Completely Accessible Park
Located northeast of San Antonio, Texas, Morgan’s Wonderland sits on 25 acres and is completely accessible, with controlled entry and exit. Braille signage and a 3-D park model assist visually impaired guests, while service dogs have their own rest area. Better yet, every special needs child or adult visitor is admitted completely free of charge, while the entry fee for family and friends is extremely low.
Special Needs Activities
There are plenty of special-needs activities at Morgan’s Wonderland to keep everyone in your party busy. Drop a line in the eight-acre catch-and-release pond that’s stocked with a variety of fish, or go for a ride on the ultra-accessible carousel. Choose one of three play areas with several types of swings, including wheelchair swings, then cool off by the water cannons and remote-controlled boats.
Try the off-road adventure ride, relax in the music garden, or check out the sensory village. Stretch your arms or legs on the walk and roll path around the lake, and finish up in the theme park’s garden sanctuary. After you’ve rested up, you can ride a train that has wheelchair-accessible cars, or visit the sand circle or memorial wall.
Disabled Veterans Participate
The fully accessible park will offer disabled veterans (the largest military medical facility in the world is just four miles away) a place where they can go with their families and join in the fun, instead of sitting on the sidelines. Paralyzed Veterans of America volunteers will help staff the park, adding to the comfort level of disabled guests.
Disability Convenience and Security
The 18 restrooms at Morgan’s Wonderland are specially designed for your convenience, with oversized floor plans and ADA accessible stalls. They’re also both heated and air conditioned for year-round comfort. Family restrooms give you room for sitting and changing.
Security hasn’t been forgotten, either, with fencing around the park’s perimeter and the lake. Innovative radio frequency identification wristbands track every visitor, while PA and emergency notification systems grant extra peace of mind. Two first aid stations can handle whatever medical emergencies arise.
Morgan’s Wonderland: Reservations Required
Morgan’s Wonderland receives raves from visitors, but it does require that you make reservations before you go so the park can take the best possible care of every guest. Opening time is 10 a.m. year-round. What are you waiting for?!
