We had an EPIC time recently checking out the brand new Epic Waters Indoor Waterpark in Grand Prairie.
Epic Waters is an incredible 80,000 square-foot, year-round waterpark topped off with a retractable roof. No matter the weather, inside it is always a balmy 85 degrees.
The waterpark’s slide tower features eleven awesome water slides. We had a blast trying out the Texas Twist, Aquanaut, Yellowjacket Drop and the Prairie Plunge.
One of my favorites was the Lasso Loop body slide where you drop 70-feet before spinning through a translucent 45-degree angled loop. It is currently the tallest indoor aqualoop in the country! I made sure to keep my eyes open the whole time!
Another popular attraction was the FlowRider, where you can show off your surfing skills on a boogie board or stand up on a FlowBoard. It takes a little practice, but I avoided wiping out after only the second try!
The e-Racers allow you to race your friends and family as you fly down the slide head first.
For those less adventurous, there is the Swimming Hole, where you can shoot basketball in the pool with friends.
The children’s area, Rascal’s Round-Up, is perfect for the little ones, with smaller slides and a large tipping bucket which drops 300 gallons of water every couple of minutes.
Other attractions include Rio Grand–the longest lazy river in Texas with periodic waves, a 4,000 square-foot arcade, lots of food choices and a full-service bar.
The facility offers cabanas, birthday parties, event and meeting space, and private rentals.
Outside, they are building a giant wave pool that should open this summer.
Epic Waters is part of EpicCentral Grand Prairie, future home of The Epic, a 120,000-square-foot facility featuring sport courts, library, theater, recording studio, fitness center, jogging track, artist studio, culinary arts room, performing arts theater, game room, indoor pools and an outdoor amphitheater.
Also in the works will be PlayGrand Adventures, a 10-acre all-inclusive outdoor playground for all ages and abilities.
Already at the site is The Summit, a facility for adults ages 50 and older, which has been in operation since 2010.
Epic Waters is located off of President George Bush Turnpike (State Highway 161) on Arkansas Lane and is about a 30 to 40 minute drive from southern Denton County.
