Paradise Springs Location

The Outdoor Water Park at the Gaylord Texan is not located at the same place as the accommodations. If you drive in on the Gaylord Trail, you will pass by it on your right on the way up to the main resort building. The Water Park itself is about 0.9 miles from the main resort. There is parking at the Water Park but most of the guests prefer to take the complimentary shuttle that is offered to the resort guests. The shuttle comes through every 20 minutes during the week but on the busier weekends, you can catch it every 10 – 15 minutes.
