    I think it's weird that the people next to their slides are dressed business casual.

    Building a gigantic waterpark in the middle of the desert during a water shortage.

    Good idea.

    Not only boring, but horribly tacky and will be outdated almost instantly in design and color.

    All of the concepts look ultra-boring.

    I went to the one in South Padre and thought it was ok. The other one in New Braunfels is much bigger, but I have never been there.

    I have heard the New Braunfels one is huge and a lot of fun, but they don't sell alcohol. I haven't been to one before. I went floating in New Braunfels though and that was awesome.

    i dont know how many gallons it takes to fill a water park, but i am guessing that spilled beer and piss replenish it faster than it evaporates.

    Did that one when we had friends who lived there.

    Lots of surfaces to burn the fuck out of you in 115 degree heat.

    I was good at MK64. Very good. Never mastered super smash as well as some others but, especially in early college, I could beat about anybody in mario kart whether short cuts were allowed or not.

    Luigi's Raceway was the worst. Too much open space for people in the middle of the pack to get ahead with red shells

    I will be about .5 miles from that park on Saturday. I will attempt to break in, get pictures, and report back to HaLo.

    To me, $50 million for a 40 acre park seems actually really low on cost.

    Also, I was at a waterpark in Missouri last year when it was 90 degrees out and the bottoms of my feet were so burned from the concrete I could not wear shoes for days. I cannot imagine 120 degrees.

    I was in Vegas back in June and this was seriously awful. It was like 105, but the concrete was dangerously hot. If you didn't have flip flops at the pool you had better hope you were walking really close to the water or find a puddle quick.

    I did not attempt to break in and was driving and therefore unable to get any pictures (and didn't really have time if I was going to make it to the game), but I can vouch that this looks fucking terrifying from the road.

    I was there this past summer. Pretty cool place, and it's huge. It's actually split into 3 different parks, with one of them being about a mile away. They have trams that run back and forth all day. Also, not sure where you heard that they didn't sell alcohol. I drank a lot of beer that day.
