Retractable enclosure developer OpenAire has finished installing the 40 retractable roof panels on the custom-built Epic Waters waterpark enclosure and is now completing the final sections of the unique structure.

One of the grandest attractions in Grand Prairie, Texas has reached another milestone in its construction. Retractable enclosure developer OpenAire has finished installing the 40 retractable roof panels on the custom-built Epic Waters waterpark enclosure and is now completing the final sections of the unique structure.

Epic Waters will cover 80,000 square feet and include a 62,000-square-foot indoor waterpark, which will be a key feature of Grand Prairie’s Grand Central park complex.

The waterpark has reached two milestones in its construction so far in 2017 with the completion of the enclosure’s aluminum rafters in January and the 83-foot-high cupola in February.

When it opens later this year, Epic Waters will hold the record for the largest indoor waterpark under a single custom curved retractable roof in the USA.

The enormous retractable roof panels open and close at the touch of a button to let in the sun and fresh air for guests year-round, giving them a truly epic aquatic experience.

Epic Waters is part of the larger 172-acre Epic Grand Central recreation center development, which recently helped the City of Grand Prairie to earn the National Recreation and Parks Association’s (NRPA) prestigious 2017 Gold Medal Award.

This award recognizes communities that have demonstrated great innovation and forward thinking in park development.

Additionally, The Epic Grand Central and other park developments have earned the Grand Prairie Parks and Recreation Department the Commission for Accreditation of Park and Recreation Agencies (CAPRA) certification for excellence in operation and service.

Today, Grand Prairie officials including Mayor Ron Jensen joins representatives of American Resource Management (ARM), OpenAire, Whitewater West, and other project team members to celebrate the incredible progress that has been made on the enclosure, and to open the massive roof’s 40 panels in a spectacular demonstration.

Guests will be able to see some of the waterpark’s many exciting attractions that are now under construction inside the structure.

Epic Waters will feature some of the most amazing water slides and attractions in the southwest, including the first Boomerango and Constrictor combination waterslide, the tallest AquaLoop slide of its kind in the nation, and a two-person aqua sphere, all in an inviting sunlit atmosphere created by OpenAire’s dynamic enclosure.

The roof’s operable polycarbonate-paneled sliders are designed to allow them to close at the first sign of rain or cold to maintain ideal conditions inside. With great progress being made so far and more great features yet to come, Epic Waters is going to live up to its name when it opens to the public.
