SAN ANTONIO- A little girl with a brain injury along with her family got her wish to go on the many rides at Morgan's wonderland.

Jennifer Cooley brought her daughter, 14 year old Zylea all the way from Ridgeland, Mississippi Wednesday. Zylea is bound to a wheelchair.

"It was a nine hour drive to get here, but it was worth it just for her to be able to experience an amusement park again," says Jennifer Cooley mother of Zylea.

She says Zylea has always loved amusements parks so she did some research and found out about Morgan's wonderland, the first and only amusement park for special needs kids.

Then, the Make-a-Wish Foundation helped the family arrange the trip.

"It is wonderful, it's a Godsend, I have never seen anything like this before, it's absolutely wonderful, if she is smiling and enjoying herself, then I am too," says Cooley.

Morgan's wonderland is completely wheelchair accessible and offers more than 25 different rides.

They are also adding a new water park which is scheduled to open in Spring 2017.
