Grand Texas Theme Park Expected to Open Late 2018, Mid 2019
Grand Texas has been in the works for some time now. It was originally scheduled to open in 2015 but ran into some hiccups with design limitations with the previous engineering firm which delayed the process.
Now with a new firm at the helm, they are on track to have the park completely finished by late 2018 to mid 2019. The park will feature a factory outlet mall, a “150-acre theme park, 83-acres Sportsplex, 40-acre water park, and a 30-acre Speedsportz Racing Park. The park will also have an RV park with more than 140 lots and four hotels. It’s set to have 450,000 square feet of dining and retail once done.” The park is expected to host nearly 1.2 million visitors during the first year of operation.
The park will be built out in phases, but expects attractions to include a wooden roller coaster, children’s roller coaster, family roller coaster and two extreme roller coasters. The waterpark will feature the largest wave pool in the Houston area, long lazy river, programmable waves, and extreme slides.
The Sportsplex will host baseball, soccer, softball, lacrosse, rugby, and seven-on-seven football games with both outdoor and indoor facilities.
The dream is very big for this park, and as a result will bode well for the local economy. Hundreds of millions of dollars are expected in sales tax alone and expects over 10,000 jobs (full and part time) to be created from the project.
Grand Texas is going to be located at the intersection of I-59 and Highway 242, nine miles east of The Woodlands.
