Epic Waters Indoor Waterpark—Grand Opening MLK Weekend 0

The other day my family was invited out to Epic Waters Indoor Water Park for there Media Day. Can you believe it took park took 4 1/2 years to complete? While there we would have been able to swim and check out all of the attractions. Although with Charlie still being under the Weather we just walked around and looked at all the beautiful amenities. As we did, we discussed which ones we want to do when we return.

If you’re not busy on Friday, I would like to let you know Epic Indoor Waterpark will open to the public at 5 p.m. on Friday, January 12, 2018. My family had planned on being there for the grand opening. Although it doesn’t seem like we will be able to attend. As Charlie still has his horrible cough, so I don’t think its wise to go swimming this week. Which makes me sad as I have been waiting forever for the waterpark to open.

If your worried the waterpark will be too crowded and that there will not be room enough for everyone you do not have to worry about that as it is an 80,000 square-foot indoor-outdoor waterpark featuring a retractable roof and year-round, weatherproof operations. Charlie, David and I were able to see the roof open, and it was the neatest thing ever. I loved being able to look up at the sky as he was walking around. I also like how it helped cool the park off. Epic Indoor Waterpark is going to be so much better than other waterparks in the area. This will keeps us from being outside in 100 degrees Weather during the Summer. Which will protect us all from getting sunburned?

For my family, the number one feature of Epic Indoor Water Parks is that we don’t have to stay in a hotel to have access to the park. There are hotels in the areas so if you want to get away, you could book a room and just chill out. I told David I would like to do this Summer. Epic Indoor Water Park is in Grand Prarie, and it is 23 feet long, and I haven’t explored it. This would allow my family to spend the weekend and explore a new town while taking a mini-vacation that wouldn’t cost us to break the bank.

Unlike other waterparks in the area, this one is open until 9 pm so you could come and plan to spend the entire day. As there are plenty of concession stands to pick up lunch or dinner from for your family. As well as an Arcade for everyone to play in if they get tired of swimming. Or there are lots of chairs to lounge in including cabanas if you wanted to be off by yourself. Also, they’re working on an outside area which I can’t wait to check out. The result is a destination where anyone from toddlers to teens to Grandma can have great fun, both in and out of the water.”

New Indoor Waterpark in North Texas Opens with Big Splash for Kids Epic Waters plans to draw in families with kid-friendly attractions and amenities for parents. Billed as a “cruise ship on land,” the waterpark offers opportunities for everyone to have fun, including plenty of kid-friendly attractions and amenities for Mom and Dad.

The headline attraction for younger guests at Epic Waters is Rascal’s Round-Up, a 3,000 square-foot/35-feet tall, brightly-colored aquatic fort featuring sprinklers, geysers, slides, and a 300-gallon tipping bucket.

“Parents can get in the pool around Rascal’s Round-Up and splash and play with their kids, or watch them comfortably from the adjacent seating areas,” said Coleman.

Other attractions suitable for guests under 42 inches include the Rio Grand (a 600-foot lazy river), an activity pool, and the e-Racers, a high-speed mat slide that pits four riders against each other in a race to the final plunge. The waterpark will also offer programming and discounts targeted to younger guests and families, including weekly Mommy & Me events (too open for dads), special days for homeschool students and kids who participate in scouting, a Family Fun Friday Arcade Night, FlowRider®camps and clinics, and a summer reading program

Older kids and teens in search of adrenaline-laced adventures can try the waterpark’s more adventurous slides, such as the Yellowjacket Drop (a serpentine, enclosed inner tube ride that concludes with a “zero gravity” drop) or the Lasso Loop (a super-tall body slide).

Both kids and teens are likely to become big fans of the waterpark’s FlowRider® (where you can learn to surf or build surfing skills in a simulated wave environment), as well as the waterpark’s 4,000 square-foot arcades, featuring 45 games and a concession area.

Amenities and Birthday Parties

 Epic Waters also offers some amenities that are sure to delight parents. Including the following items an on-site retail shop, free parking, discounted spectator-only tickets, family-friendly music and weekly specials—such as cut twilight admission (available after 5 p.m.) or Website Wednesdays (where you can mention a secret code and earn a discount). There’s also the Hungry Wave Café, offering a chef-driven menu (that includes children’s items) and Longboards, a full-service bar.

Birthday party packages are already proving to be a current draw for families, with many selling before the waterpark’s opening day. These packages accommodate small and large groups (plus chaperones) and include amenities like catering, arcade cards, party time in a private room, and return tickets for the birthday host.

“Our birthday parties began selling last summer, and we anticipate that bookings will increase once we’re open for business,” said Coleman. “Therefore, we encourage parents to book now to increase the chances of getting their preferred date.”
