Houston to Open Grand Texas Theme Park and Big Rivers Water Park in 2015
Houston is getting an all new massive theme park and entertainment complex which will open in phases beginning Spring 2015. The complex will consist of Grand Texas Theme Park, Big Rivers Waterpark, Downtown Texas, Wakeboard Lake, Baseball Stadium, hotels and a concert and event center. Since AstroWorld shuttered in 2005, greater Houston has been bereft of a theme park so Grand Texas will certainly be welcome.
But the Grand Texas project goes well beyond what AstroWorld ever offered. The district will be a destination families can spend long weekends at because of the wide array of attractions and accommodations. The amusement park will be steeped in Texas history and the first phase will be the theme park and water park.
