Other features of Morgan's Inspiration Island include waterproof RFID (radio-frequency identification) wristbands so parents can keep track of their kids, a seven-story lighthouse and a water play area called Rainbow Reef, which has water that can be warmed for guests with sensitivity to cold.
In a press release, owner Gordon Hartman said the team behind Inspiration Island consulted with water park professionals, doctors and experts in special education and special needs, as well as received input from local teachers, parents and caregivers.

The park also offers private areas for guests to transfer out of their personal wheelchairs to waterproof ones.
"We recently unveiled with the University of Pittsburgh revolutionary new wheelchairs propelled by compressed air," Gordon said. "Our guests in expensive battery-powered wheelchairs can't afford to get them wet, so we have special Morgan's Inspiration Island PneuChairs."
With help from the attractions and special features, the team at Morgan's Inspiration Island hopes to ensure all of its guests will have fun without worry.
"Morgan's Inspiration Island promises to give individuals with physical or cognitive special needs a place where they can splash and play without barriers," Gordon said.

Stories like this Thor, in a time that recently seems to be filled with bad news and tragedies, make us see that the world can be a happy place too. x
