You Will Soon Be Able to Surf In Fair Park

Here's what we know so far: Fair Park, in an effort to not be a waste of space 11 months of the year, is opening an amusement park. It's called Summer Adventures, despite the fact that it will open next spring. It will have the $11 million, 500-foot Top of Texas Tower.

We didn't know until today that is that, according to city documents, there will also be a FlowRider. And what's the FlowRider, you ask? Well, it's like the ocean in that you can surf on it. But it's really more like one of those Endless Pools in that you just hover there on a jet of water. You can watch a video here.
