By Stephanie Allmon Merry

The largest floating aqua park obstacle course in Texas has opened on Lake Grapevine — just for the summer. Altitude H20, in Grapevine’s Meadowmere Park, is a gargantuan floating playground that will be open through Labor Day, September 3.

Kids ages 6 and older can slide, slip, and splash around an inflatable Witbit Aqua Park that features obstacles like a balance beam, wiggle bridge, monkey bars, trampolines, and half-pipe. The entire playground floats above lake water that’s 8 feet deep.32841503_2114685892140031_4623888733479895040_o
