Thanks to our friends at Chevrolet, our company’s owner and his family were invited to take an epic water park tour this summer! Barefoot Ski Ranch (BSR) – the one that brought you the Royal Flush water slide – has raised the bar on outdoor fun here in Texas with its inland surfing and watersports facilities! The BSR Cable Park and surrounding property near Waco is now a surf resort featuring a two-acre lake. This summer, our friends at Chevrolet sent Mitch and Meg, along with their kids, on an awesome road trip to this exciting water park.

Including the infamous Royal Flush, this surf resort’s waves on the amazing man-made lake are powered by American Wave Machines Inc. It creates the definitive surfing wave for families or sports enthusiasts to Hang Ten. The park brought the ocean (in effect) to central Texas, so Chevrolet brought Mitch and Meg to the park in a brand new 2018 Tahoe, complete with all the bells and whistles! Their Waco road trip was a family vacation adventure designed specifically for this family, with their children ranging in age from 5 years to teenager – and we all know how hard it is to please a Texas teenager on a family road trip!

The comfort and space that the 2018 Chevrolet Tahoe afforded the family allowed them to not only test the waters at Waco Surf Park, but also test the ride, complete with technology that supported their growing family’s needs. Its 4G LTE Wi-Fi feature allowed them to stay connected on the road as well as stream movies for the kids along the way (it allows for seven devices to be connected at once!). And, if you thought power would be an issue, not a chance. With seven USB ports, a 110-volt three-prong outlet, and an available wireless charging station, there was no need for the family to worry about connectivity.

Getting to the BSR Cable Park and Surf Resort was also made easy with Chevy’s OnStar technology, offering turn-by-turn directions at the touch of a button. It has the ability to recommend money-saving tips for places to eat or shop along the way, which worked out well. Upon arrival, the family made the most of what has been ranked as America’s number one cable park. It’s not surprising, considering that The park and resort offer “…3500 feet of uninterrupted water, the world’s longest lazy river and the BSR Super Slide, Royal Flush. The facility includes a clubhouse with a multi-story deck open year round for private events, all in a beautiful setting.”

With a number of cabins available for rent, an operating ranch on which visitors can view local wildlife, and water features which are second-to-none, the family almost didn’t want to leave! However, after climbing back into the 2018 Tahoe, the option that Chevrolet provided for Apple CarPlay/Android Auto allowed for dad to use his iPhone features with music that soothed the savage beast (a car full of kids), and touch base through Siri to get great dinner recommendations along the way. After fueling up and filling up at a great local roadside stop, dad was able to start the truck remotely with the myChevrolet Mobile app, and the family made it home safely with the assistance of the Tahoe’s Lane Keep Assist and Adaptive Cruise Control features in effect. The family vacation adventure to BSR Cable Park and Surf Resort in Waco was a dream come true for this Texas crew in their brand new, 2018 Chevy Tahoe, making this summer vacation one for the books!
