An Inside Look at The Busby Family’s Trip to Splashway

A few weeks ago we started a big project in our house, a kitchen remodel. YAY!! Though it is going to be weeks of construction, we decided during the demo week that it would be best for us to take the kids out of the house. So after a few days of research, I came across a Campground / Water Park called Splashway Waterpark and Campgrounds. Splashway is only about an hour and half outside of Houston, so it was a ‘one movie in the car’ kind of drive. We packed up the car in the morning, got on the road after lunch and made it there just in time to check-in at 3pm.
When we pulled up, we were blown away by how big this place was!
When our family travels or has to stay overnight somewhere, we usually have to get 2 hotel rooms or a suite to fit us all, and that can get pricey at times. BUT Splashway has amazing cabins that sleep 10 people! It is so very rare to find a place that will sleep all eight of us and not ‘break the bank’. For under $300 a night, all eight of can stay in one place….and we have never had a price like this before. However, after all the excitement and fun we knew we were going to have, we ended up inviting some family members to come share the time with us there and decided to rent out their big Bunkhouse that can sleep up to 20. We had such a blast camping out with the family all in one place.
Every day was blazing hot in this Texas Summer, so we of course went to the awesome waterpark every day. Blayke (9 yrs old) had such a blast actually riding slides all by herself and then the quints (5 yrs old) fell in love with the Costa Del Ray section! So many slides to choose from! We also enjoyed the wave pool, where all the girls laughed and laughed as they tried to jump every wave, lol. But hey! Don’t think this place is just for kids! Adam and I even had a blast on all the bigger rides. Our favorite was the Dueling Splash Blasters!! SO FUN! And most days at the waterpark were ended in the good ‘ol lazy river.
After our days of water fun, we would head back to the bunkhouse and change into some dry clothes and then it was camp out time. *One thing I think was super helpful for us, that I would recommend to others staying on the camp grounds, is to rent a golf cart! This made going back and forth so easy, and it was fun for the kids. Adam started a fire in the fire pit every evening and we grilled dinner and of course had s’mores 😉
We had so much fun at Splashway and we are already so excited to go back!
