A Waterpark For The Disabled Just Opened, And The Photos Are Pure Joy.

Water parks are in their prime during the summer. Who wouldn't want to spend a hot summer day riding cold water attractions? You're having a blast and cooling down at the same time, it's killing two birds with one stone! Such water parks, however, are known to be inaccessible to those who have disabilities.

Well all of that has just changed as the world's very first water park for people with disabilities has just opened! It's called Morgan's Inspiration Island and it's designed for a range of various disability identities. Best part: anyone with a disability automatically has free admission into the park.

The tropical-themed water park includes six major attractions.

Such rides include an accessible river boat ride and different types of splash pads (which are more accessible than pools to mobility-disabled people). The splash pads could range from water cannons to rain curtains to surfaces with geysers.

The park teamed up with the University of Pittsburgh to create an innovative new wheelchair.

It's called the PneuChair. Instead of batters, the chair uses compressed air to move, ultimately making them waterproof and inexpensive to produce. The park's guests are allowed to use the chairs for free so that they don't potentially damage the standard battery-powered wheelchairs they regularly use.

The PneuChairs only weigh 80 pounds while the battery-operated ones are hundreds of pounds.

In addition, the PneuChair only takes 10 minutes to recharge itself with air and run just as long as any electric wheelchair (which would normally take eight hours to recharge).

In addition to the PneuChairs, the park offers two other wheelchair types as well.

To help cater to guests with special mobility needs, the park also offers a model that can be pushed by a caregiver and a traditional manual wheelchair.

For children who are likely to wander and get lost, the park offers a high-tech, waterproof wristband.

This way, if they do get separated from their parents, the park's staff can easily locate them. The park also offers the ability to change water to warmer temperatures. This way, guests that are sensitive to the cold can still enjoy the park.
