Gaylord Texan Water Park to Open Memorial Day Weekend 2011

Recently released news on the Gaylord Texan Twitter page included a note that the new water park would open on Memorial Day weekend.  Memorial weekend runs May 27th through 30th this year.  We took a quick stop by the Gaylord Texan yesterday to observe the progress.  As you can see from the photo, they are already starting to fill in some water in some of the pools of the park.  It looked like most of what was left were the finishing touches like landscaping and fences.

Just as we enter summer, get ready for fun at the Gaylord Texan with the opening of its new water park.  Some of the main attractions include:

  • 6,000 square foot lagoon
  • 42 foot zip-lines
  • 600 foot lazy river
  • Full service bar and restaurant
  • Game areas
  • Water slide
  • Walk-in beach

You can check out an artists rendering of the new park and a preview video at the Gaylord Texan website.

Have fun!
