The roof allows the park to be open air during sunny days and closed during inclement weather to allow the waterpark to stay open 365 days a year.

Epic Waters Indoor Waterpark is a public-private development owned by the City of Grand Prairie that is expected to become one of Dallas-fort Worth’s top-tier family entertainment destinations when it opens in late 2017

Mayor Ron Jensen said that new hotels, restaurants and retail is already under development in the area around Epic Waters and the 170 acre Grand Central park. He added that with additional development planned in the area, Grand Central park will be an entertainment epicenter.
