Grand Prairie, Texas—After years of research, planning, development, testing, and training, Epic Waters Indoor Waterpark will officially open its doors to the public on January 12, 2018.

Epic Waters, professionally managed by American Resort Management of Erie, PA, will feature nine attractions, including three “first of their kind” slides in the United States, as well as an arcade, food and beverage outlets, a full-service bar, and more.

“We are ecstatic to finally be able to open Epic Waters up to the public. So much has gone into this building. It’s been an incredible journey, and we know that this is only the beginning,” said Richard Coleman, Vice President of Development and Operations for the management company.

He continued, “We’ve taken every step to ensure that Epic Waters lives up to its name in every way, and we can’t wait to share that with the community, rain or shine, year-round.”

The waterpark’s opening comes in time to celebrate Martin Luther King weekend, so families will have a full extra day to splash, play, and take on the thrilling rides and slides.

Annual passes are available for purchase on Epic Waters’ website at Visitors will be able to purchase these, summer or fall season passes, or day passes to enjoy the waterpark.

Epic Waters, in tandem with The Epic, a state-of-the-art lifestyle and recreation center set to open later in 2018, helped the Grand Prairie Parks, Arts, and Recreation department win the 2017 National Recreation and Park Association (NRPA) Gold Medal award. The award “honors communities throughout the United States that demonstrate excellence in long-range planning, resource management, and innovative approaches to delivering superb park and recreation services with fiscally sound business practices.” The development was made possible when in 2014, taxpayers of Grand Prairie, Texas approved an additional sales tax that helped fund what officials from the city are billing “a cruise ship on land.”
