SAN ANTONIO – The 2016 summer season at unique and colorful Morgan’s Wonderland theme park will begin Memorial Day Weekend, May 28-30, according to Ron Morander, general manager.
The safe, affordable and completely wheelchair-accessible theme park will be open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, May 28; 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday, May 29; and 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday, May 30 – Memorial Day.
New attractions include the Whirling Wonder Ferris wheel that rises five-and-a-half stories high along the shoreline of the park’s catch-and-release fishing lake and “Hartman’s House,” an interactive puppet show presented in a colorful, custom-designed puppet theater that can accommodate performers both with and without special needs.
In addition to its regular attractions, Morgan’s Wonderland will host summertime special events including a Monday, July 4, salute to active-duty members of the armed forces and first-responders such as firefighters, law-enforcement officers and emergency-medical professionals.
In June, July and up through mid-August, the park will be open daily except on Mondays, Morander noted. And just like in previous summers, Morgan’s Wonderland will open at 9 a.m. Tuesday through Saturday to take advantage of milder morning temperatures for guest comfort and enjoyment.
The latest information about the park’s operating schedule and special events is always available at www.MorgansWonderland.com or at (210) 495-5888 or toll-free (877) 495-5888. Morgan’s Wonderland offers more than 25 fun things to do including rides, playgrounds and gardens for everyone’s enjoyment. It has become the center of a family fun destination known as Wonderland, Texas.
This summer, the 25-acre park will continue to offer discounts for active-duty and retired military personnel, senior adults and children, plus season passes and discounted multi-ticket packages. Admission for those with special needs is always free of charge, while admission fees for accompanying family members, friends, caregivers and the general public are affordable.
“Non-profit Morgan’s Wonderland is the very first park of its kind because it was designed with special-needs individuals in mind and built for everyone to enjoy,” Morander noted. “We’re now in our seventh year of operation, and thus far we’ve welcomed a million guests from all over America and around the world.”
Meanwhile, construction continues next door at Morgan’s Inspiration Island, the world’s first ultra-accessible splash park that’s scheduled to open in spring 2017.
Morgan’s Wonderland is located at 5223 David Edwards Drive in Northeast San Antonio a half-mile west of IH 35 at the intersection of Wurzbach Parkway and Thousand Oaks Drive.
