Hawaiian Falls water park in Roanoke has added an extra weekend of operation past Labor Day this year.

The bonus park days will be Sept. 12-13 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. with select attractions open. This will mark the first time the park has been open past Labor Day.

“The team worked very hard to get the parks open for the 2020 season,” Hawaiian Falls Managing Director Ryan Forson said in a statement. “With the added COVID-19 and government protocols, we are thankful we have been able to open every day since May 29.”

Forson said the park has followed protocols from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention as well as state and local guidelines to keep guests and staff safe throughout the summer.

“We want to reward our season pass holders and loyal guests with more opportunities this month to gather as a family and create memories,” he said.


Area Director of Hawaiian Falls Jason Martin noted the park added the new Coconut Cove attraction this year. The activity pool features a water basketball court and floating obstacle course as well as in-water lounge seats and private cabanas.

Hawaiian Falls is located at 290 W. Byron Nelson Blvd. in Roanoke. The park will offer discounted $15 tickets online for adults and children age 3 and up. Children age 2 and under get in free. Season pass holders can get in 30 minutes before gates open to the public.

The park is also kicking off Labor Day weekend with a Friday Night Slides event from 5-8 p.m. Sept. 4 with $10 tickets. Hawaiian Falls will be open 10:30 a.m.-7 p.m. Sept. 5-6 and 10:30 a.m.-6 p.m. Sept. 7.
