While we only had appetizers here, this was a cool place to visit. I've never seen a place like this before, where you can watch wake boarders and water skiers practice. It was very entertaining to watch while having a margarita and awesome nachos. Super cool idea, and definitely different. The bartender was quick, the drinks were tasty, and the... More

My 2 grandchildren age 14, so enjoyed the entry level cable ski, they want to come back next summer for bigger run on next lake, the staff is very polite, we bought shirt and hat for them in gift shop. Early hour entrance fee just $25 + tax each person really saved us some money.

I like the pulley lines there is slight drag around the corners but after the 3 or 4th pass you learn to compensate. This place is awsome in the summer.

Whenever I want to give my son a treat, I take him to Texas Ski Ranch to wake board. The rates are very reasonable when you consider the vast artificial lake, all of the staff they have on hand, and the equipment that is always in great shape to rent. Hungry? Wahoo's is a great restaurant upstairs that also offers... More

I have 4 teenage boys and they love spending the day at TSR! From wake boarding to snow boarding to the skate park and more, they are exhausted at the end of the day. With Yahoos there to provide a good pick me up, I can leave them knowing they have everything they need for the day. Thanks TSR for... More

This is one of the most interesting places I have been to. It is a man made lake with cables that have rope and handles hanging down to the water. You get your wakeboard ready and when the rope comes by on the cable you grab hold. The cable pulls you around the lake and gives you the freedom to... More

This morning we made the effort to be at the TSR by 9am. I thought there would be a large line for the early bird special of $25 equipment and cable pass. But not today. The guys running the equipment were as sincere and laid back as I have seen. Everyone was important and they took the time to share... More
