Grand Texas delays opening of two new attractions to mid-July, cites inclement weather


Grand Texas officials announced Tuesday they are delaying the grand opening of the park’s two newest attractions: Gator Bayou Adventure Park and Big Rivers Waterpark.

According to a statement on the park’s Facebook page, both parks were scheduled to open on June 29, but due to inclement weather the opening has been delayed. A Grand Texas spokesperson said a new opening date has not been set, but officials hope to open the park in mid-July. She said this could change depending on future weather.

Big Rivers Waterpark is a 40-acre park that will offer a wave pool and water slides, and Gator Bayou Adventure Park will offer a fishing hole, bumper boats, a petting zoo and an alligator exhibit. Both parks will be part of Grand Texas, which is a 632-acre entertainment venue located at the intersection of Hwy. 242 and Hwy. 59 in New Caney.

Grand Texas’ two existing developments—Grand Texas RV Park and Speedsportz Racing—opened in 2016. 

Annual passes to Gator Bayou Adventure Park and Big Rivers Waterpark went on sale in April.
