Following the success of its three previous parks in the greater Dallas area, the Hawaiian Falls group embarked on establishing its largest and most elaborately themed park. Prominently located on 14
acres, the $10 million waterpark opened in May 2008, and is a joint
venture between Hawaiian Falls, the city of Mansfield, Texas, and
the Mansfield Park Facilities Development Corp. The park is owned
by the city and operated by Hawaiian Falls for a 40-year term. With
significant grading and servicing challenges, the site demanded a
skillfully refined master plan to satisfy the various concerns and
issues. Whitewater worked closely with the Hawaiian Falls team and
the civil engineer to meet these demands.
Designed to entertain 150,000 guests annually, the park conveys the
“spirit of Hawaii” with tikis, thatch architecture,
surfboards, palms and, of course, Hawaiian music. A great place for
groups and special events, Hawaiian Falls offers colorful, private
rental cabanas; corporate and group picnic areas; and birthday
party zones. Weekly live concerts are scheduled as well as
“drive-in” movies to be enjoyed at “Waikiki
Beach,” the 18,000-square-foot wave pool.
During the hot Texas days, guests can splash about and cool their
feet as they meander across the park enjoying the shallow
stream-like water walkway. The wide expansive wave pool beach
includes numerous thatched shade huts for comfort and relaxation.
On the 850-foot-long “Kona Kooler” river, guests can
take a leisurely tube ride around the park, complete with an
adventure river section. Thirteen body, mat and inner tube
waterslides appropriately named “Honolulu Lulu,”
“The Pineapple Express,” “The Maui Wowie”
and “The Blowhole Bowl” offer plenty of thrills and
Designed for children and their parents, Kieki Cove houses an
interactive children’s multi-level play structure, complete
with sprays, slides, water jets, climbing nets and a giant tipping
tiki head bucket. Also for younger children, “The Coconut
Sprayground” offers an interactive spray deck with an array
of jets, sprays and elements.
Hawaiian Falls Waterparks are planned, designed and built to bring
families together in a safe, entertaining and relaxing park
environment. Hawaiian Falls Mansfield transports guests to the
“Islands” where the surfs up and smiles and laughter
are found throughout.
