Enjoy your next visit to Epic Water Indoor Water Park

Epic Waters Indoor Waterpark is 80,000 square-foot indoor-outdoor family entertainment destination. It has a giant retractable roof and a climate-controlled interior. Did you know its the largest waterpark under a single retractable roof in North America? It’s been referred to as a “cruise ship on land” with it’s 11 thrilling waterslides. The waterpark opened in January 2018 and has already welcomed more than 100,000 guests from around the world! The second month of operations, the waterpark was named to the Travel Channel’s “8 of the Most Epic Indoor Waterparks” list.

Check out the video I put together of the highlights from our visit:

1. The Lazy River

Did you know that Epic Waters has the longest indoor lazy river in Texas? Yes, you can float this river called the Rio Grand. This isn’t just any lazy river, at times a surge arrives causing waves and currents in the river. You could hear the roar of kids laughing as they were balancing on their floats.

2. Attraction You’ve Never Seen Anywhere Else!

Epic Waters is proud to feature “three North American Firsts in the waterpark industry”. These include the Lasso Loop, the Yellow Jacket drop, and the Aquanaut! Get ready for body slides, inner tubes, drops, and speed. Anyone over 48 inches tall will enjoy the thrill these attractions offer!

3. The FlowRider

The closest Texans will ever get to surfing! The FlowRider is a chance to learn to boogie board on a perfect, everlasting wave! Don’t worry if your kids aren’t ready to stand up on the board just yet. They can lay on their stomachs and enjoy the ride!

4. 300-Gallon Tipping Bucket

It’s not a true waterpark with a tipping bucket! My kids loved waiting for the 300-gallon bucket to fill up so that it would drench everyone within its reach.  It’s very impressive! Did you know that they are open all year round? You can purchase an annual pass and enjoy using it during the winter months when you’re looking for fun things to do with the kids!

5. The Aquatic Fort

If you have younger kids this is going to be your favorite area of the waterpark. The kids will be entertained all day by the slides, geysers, and sprinklers! This large fort is full of FUN and parents can relax nearby in the seating area as they watch their kids play.

6. The Swimming Hole

All the attractions and play areas are a blast at Epic Waters but sometimes you need a little downtime and the swimming hole is perfect for this! The kids will love to swim and play with the basketball hoops. This was a very popular area of the waterpark!

7. The Arcade

If your family enjoys playing arcade games you must stop in for a while at the Epic Waters Arcade. The 4,000 sq. ft. room (it’s HUGE) has over 50 classic and state-of-the-art games. I’ll be honest, my husband and I became big kids when we got to this area of the waterpark! We couldn’t help it when we surrounded by the classic games from our childhood!

The Epic Waters Arcade is sure to be fun for the whole family!

8. The Food & Beverages

Last on the list but certainly not the least important. After you’ve been having a lot of fun you’re going to be hungry! Don’t worry Epic Waters has a great menu selection and even a  full-service bar for those anyone wanting to relax with a beer, wine, or signature cocktails. I never have high expectations for food when visiting waterparks but I was pleasantly surprised. The pizza was very good and affordable!

  1. If I weren’t so old, I’d be smack in the middle of the fun. But watching my grandkids will be just as good!
