Hawaiian Falls In Pflugerville Named Among The Top 14 New Water Parks In The World For 2014
List issued by Los Angeles Times’ Brady MacDonald this month.
PFLUGERVILLE, Texas—The Pflugerville Community Development Corporation (PCDC) today announced that the new Hawaiian Falls Waterpark and Adventure Park was named among the “Top 14 new water parks for 2014” by Los Angeles Times columnist Brady MacDonald in the Dec. 16 issue of the newspaper.
The $21.5 million year-round regional entertainment venue is expected to open Memorial Day 2014 in Pflugerville near the intersection of FM 685 and SH 130.
“It is validating to see that our new Hawaiian Falls in Pflugerville is getting the national and global recognition it deserves before the project is even complete,” PCDC Executive Director Floyd Akers said. “There is a lot of hype about this project, and it is all very warranted. It will be a great venue for Central Texas, and will provide great jobs and be an economic engine for Pflugerville.”
While the list is not a ranking, Hawaiian Falls in Pflugerville is No. 6. MacDonald said in the article, “Hawaiian Falls (Texas) – The newest addition to the Hawaiian Falls chain, the $21.5- million water and adventure park in the Austin suburb of Pflugerville will feature tube, body and speed slides along with zip lines, obstacle courses and climbing structures.”
