Big Rivers Waterpark


Grand Texas’ Big Rivers Waterpark and the Gator Bayou Adventure Park are planning to open on schedule on Memorial Day weekend. To celebrate the opening, they are offering reduced prices on daily tickets through the end of this month.

Monty Galland, Grand Texas CEO and developer made a statement in a Facebook Live video that the park would reopen for the summer season on Saturday, May 23 at 10:30 am. Through the end of May, you will be able to purchase reduced daily ticket prices for just $20.20 per person.

Families will find no shortage of activities when visiting Big Rivers Waterpark and Gator Bayou Adventure Park. You’ll be able to enjoy the rock wall, zip-lining, an inflatable obstacle course, a petting zoo, an alligator farm, and much more. To keep families safe the water park will be implementing new policies due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

For instance, while the park has room for 12,000 guests, only 2,020 people (less than 25% occupancy) will be allowed in at one time. In order for businesses to currently operate, they have to remain at 25% occupancy or less.

The staff that is on hand for guest interaction will be required to wear masks and there will be hand sanitizing stations at various locations throughout the park. All pool loungers will be placed six feet apart. The park restaurant will limit occupancy from the allowed 400 guests to just 150. Additionally, over 6,000 square feet of shade space has been added to allow for even more social distancing for visiting guests. Guests can wear face masks if they wish, but they are not required to do so.

The $20 passes do not include admission for all of the aerial attractions. The tickets will get you access to all water park rides, the maze, and the petting zoo. Day prices are normally $40-$45, but through May you’ll get them for just $20. Season passes are available for $90 and will get you into the park 30 minutes before it opens.
