The manmade, 12-acre lake at Wake Nation Houston was designed for wakeboarding, but there's not a single boat on it. Instead, a system of cables and pulleys whisks wakeboarders along the placid surface in much the same way towropes pull astronauts to the moon. Aided by supportive instructors, beginners learn the fundamentals of the sport with the use of a practice cable on a smaller practice pond before taking to the main lake. More advanced aquatic acrobats, meanwhile, soar off floating jumps and slalom around obstacles.
Despite its name, the park isn't exclusively for wakeboarders. Its cables can just as easily haul visitors on kneeboards, water skis, and wake-skates. Water-shy guests can watch their friends from an observation deck, browse the pro shop, or nosh on snacks from the concession stand.

The Glazery is chock-full of more than 1,000 different ceramic pieces, serving as waiting canvases for paintbrush-wielding patrons. Friends, couples, and enemies stuck together after a terrible rubber-cement accident can select a paintbrush and a multitude of paint colors to breathe life into white ceramic shapes. Containers shaped like cupcakes, owls, and donuts ($15.70 each) can be painted any hue of the rainbow, and customers can create a ceramic menagerie by painting winks and smirks on animal figurines ($15.70 each). The Glazery also carries authorized Disney figurines ($17.55 each), allowing artists to give Minnie an updated frock and Mickey a full-body dye job. The cost of the ceramic piece covers everything except for tax, and post-kiln projects will be ready for pickup about a week after being painted.
