The park covers 17 acres and features 22 water slides, the largest uphill watercoaster in the world, a 5-level interactive water play area, a wave pool, and an endless river. There is also a “tween area” with a pool that looks like a lagoon, a tech deck, and a sand volleyball court. NRH2O is well-known in the Metroplex because of its friendly, clean, and affordable environment. NRH2O typically opens the week prior to Memorial Day and closes the week after Labor Day.
NRH2O is Texas’ first municipal water park and the first in the country! In 1995, the park was opened with three body slides and a river. The park covers 17 acres and has 23 attractions. Its most famous attraction is the Green Extreme. The Green Extreme, at 1,100 feet is the longest uphill water roller coaster in the country. You will experience the thrill of a rollercoaster, but with the added bonus of being propelled by water jets, this ride is exhilarating.
The park is considered one of the top water parks in the country and Trip Advisor has awarded it numerous service excellence awards.
The park received its 5.8-millionth visitor last summer. Frank Perez, NRH2O’s General Manager, has been with the park since its inception in 1995. He has trained over 9,000 staff members. Perez said, “We are proud to know that NRH2O continues exceeding guests’ expectations each year.” NRH2O’s original vision was to be a “park within a park” where families could come together in a safe, fun, and clean environment. Other water parks are built with acres of concrete. Perez stated that NRL2O deliberately designed the park to have open green space, in order to create a friendly and open environment.
The success of NRH2O has led to more city-owned water parks in the DFW region, as well as an influx of private water parks and water parks within hotel rooms. Despite the competition, NRH2O prides itself on keeping certain things the same from the beginning – free parking, FREE coolers, and, most importantly, a safe and secure environment for families.
North Richland Hills residents might be surprised to learn that the park funds its operating expenses using park revenue. Therefore, property taxes are not used for funding the park. Residents of North Richland Hills receive a discounted admission rate.
