You might want to hope that it's not 40 degrees by the time next Saturday, November 3, rolls around—kidding, it'll probably be 90 degrees out again. But if that's the case, so be it. Because New Caney's long-awaited, forthcoming amusement complex Grand Texas is offering a free sneak peek inside its Gator Bayou Adventure Park, part of the larger Big Rivers Waterpark, which finally makes its debut in 2019.
If you head over to the park you can actually thank the East Montgomery County Improvement District, which promotes business in New Caney, and brought out Gator Bayou for the public to get a little taste of what's to come. So what is to come?
The free entry will get you access to parking, a petting zoo, pony rides, a maze, an obstacle coarse that includes water obstacles (so wear a swimsuit and bring a change of clothes). Some attractions, including the Raccoon Run, a children's zip-line course, will be pay to play. There's also something called the Vulture Dive, consisting of a seven-story fall from a cliff (while you're harnessed in to ropes, naturally), which sounds fun for all the youths in your life who need to be scared straight.
You can check out all the extreme attractions right here. There will also be food and gift shop items for purchase.
Big River Waterpark—located at the Highway 59 and 242 intersection and part of the 62-acre Grand Texas amusement and sports complex that will also include four hotels, an RV resort, retail, and Speedsportz Racing Track go-kart facility—was expected to open this summer, but things got delayed, so this is everyone's chance to preview it before 2019. Plus, you know you want to adorn a swimsuit in November just because you can. There's nothing wrong with a good, little free fun.
