What Is It?

The founder, Gordon Hartman, wanted to a build an amusement park that would be safe and comfortable for people with disabilities.
The best part about this theme park is the fact that any person with a disability can enter it free of cost!
During the entry, children with disabilities are given a waterproof GPS wrist band so that the parents or guardians can track them down in case they get lost.
Along with that, there are private lounges and areas for kids who are vulnerable around crowds.
Morgan’s Wonderland is also extremely careful about the water they use for disabled people. They make sure the water is regularly filtered and recycled using specialized equipment so it is safe for all.
