IFlyH2O is a fun new way to enjoy a day on Cypress Lake in Benton.

Beat the Heat with Wet and Wild Fun


As temperatures rise outside, visitors to Shreveport-Bossier can cool off by diving into a good time at several local attractions. Splash Kingdom Water Park is open for the summer, with fun and kid-friendly special events coming up in July including a superhero visit on July 9 and performances by Twiggy the Waterskiing Squirrel on July 11. Thrill-seekers can fly high above Cypress Lake in Benton courtesy of iFlyH2O and their water-powered jetpacks. The iFlyH2O experience, known as “hydroflight,” is a pulse-pounding and unforgettable adventure on the water.

The wet and wild good times will continue on Saturday, Aug. 20, when Slide the City brings its huge, inflatable waterslides to downtown Shreveport. Slide the City ticket prices increase on July 30, so sign up today.
