January 21, 2015, an affiliate of TripAdvisor, has named Morgan’s Wonderland the “best family attraction” in Texas.
“We looked at every state in the USA and chose the top family attraction worth traveling for,” said Chelsea Tyler of  “We chose the attractions based on positive traveler reviews, amount of fun for all (or most) ages and bang for your buck.”

Morgan’s Wonderland also continues to rate near the top among 135 San Antonio attractions on the TripAdvisor website –    
“We’re proud to be recognized by and TripAdvisor because the source of the recognition is feedback from those who’ve actually experienced Morgan’s Wonderland,” said Ron Morander, the theme park’s general manager.  “Guests from all across the nation and from around the world often tell us it’s hard to believe that a totally wheelchair-accessible park like Morgan’s Wonderland exists.”
Offering more than 25 attractions including rides, playgrounds and gardens for everyone’s enjoyment, Morgan’s Wonderland is the center of a family fun destination now known as Wonderland, Texas.  The former Longhorn Quarry is also the location of Toyota Field, home of the North American Soccer League champions, the San Antonio Scorpions pro soccer team; the STAR (South Texas Area Regional) Soccer Complex, with 13 first-class fields for tournament and league play; and Monarch Academy, a school for students with special needs next door to Morgan’s Wonderland.  Net profits from the Scorpions, Toyota Field and STAR Soccer help non-profit Morgan’s Wonderland meet its financial obligations as well as expand services and programs for the special-needs community.
The inspiration for Morgan’s Wonderland came from philanthropists Gordon and Maggie Hartman’s 21-year-old daughter Morgan.  Her soaring spirit despite personal challenges sparked within the Hartmans a deep desire to create a haven not only for those with special needs but also for their families, caregivers,  invited friends and the general public.
“Inclusion is the overarching objective for Morgan’s Wonderland,” Gordon Hartman explained.  “Our vision is to play an instrumental role in helping establish more ultra-accessible family fun parks throughout the nation and the world.  Morgan’s Wonderland is a truly beautiful place, and right now it takes on a special ambience at night for special events such as ‘A Wonderland Christmas.’”

Morgan’s Wonderland is located in Northeast San Antonio a half-mile west of IH 35 at the intersection of Wurzbach Parkway and Thousand Oaks Drive.  The latest information on Morgan’s Wonderland admissions, operating days/hours of operation and special events/celebrations can be found at
