Longtime wakeboarding enthusiast Tommy Fambrough founded Cowtown Wakepark to initiate Fort Worth into this exciting on-the-water sport. Instead of boats or domesticated narwhals, a cable system tugs participants as they balance on a wakeboard and make their way around a circular watercourse. Ramps and various stunt platforms challenge freshwater athletes, and kneeboards and wakeskating present other thrilling forms of surface gliding. Helmets and life jackets accompany each board jockey into the water, offering all the protection of a wearable grandma.

Although Cowtown Wakepark offers a discounted rate every day before noon, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.

Cowtown Wakepark

Just off a straight stretch of the Trinity River, the sounds of laughter and victorious whooping grow louder. A curious look toward the hubbub yields a vision rarely seen in the city—helmet-clad athletes of all ages splash along the water's surface, launching their bodies in what looks like the offspring of water-skiing and snowboarding onto ramps, jumps, and railings that protrude from the water's surface like geometric islands. It's all part of a regular afternoon at Cowtown Wakepark, the watery brainchild of 20-year wakeboarding enthusiast Tommy Fambrough. During the course of three years, Tommy slowly formed the labyrinth of water-bound obstacles that visitors enjoy today, earning acclaim from the Trinity River Vision Authority's revitalization project for his riverside paradise's part in keeping the area an accessible and productive part of the community.

Each wakeboarding run begins when visitors strapped into their Liquid Force boards grab a cable and are pulled from the shore-side wooden platform across the water, cutting through the river's calm surface and pausing only to heckle passing fish. Spectators stick to the shore under covered tents and at picnic tables, or recline on the water's surface inside tented rafts. Onsite instructors can show first-timers the ropes, and also lead summer day camps to instill children aged 7–16 with wakeboarding, kneedboarding, and wakeskating basics.
