Epic Waters Indoor Waterpark to Host a Socially Distanced Event on December 31st
GRAND PRAIRIE, TX, UNITED STATES, December 23, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — North Texas’ largest indoor waterpark is setting sail to welcome in the New Year! As 2020 comes to an end (finally!), the Epic Waters Crew is celebrating the start of a brand-new year, and you are invited! Cruise into 2021 in Grand Prairie, with an evening full of socially distanced, family-friendly fun.
During Epic New Year – Cruise Around the World, guests can ring in the New Year throughout the day along with several countries around the globe. In honor of their mascot, Waddles, Epic Waters Indoor Waterpark created their own take on a “ball drop”, where the park will lower a giant rubber duck several times throughout the day. With socially distanced zones in place to ensure everyone can enjoy the drop, the Epic Crew will do a countdown and rubber duck drop at midnight for a number of different time zones, beginning at 3pm CST, with the biggest drop being at midnight.
“What makes Epic Waters so remarkable is that we focus on being the headquarters for family-friendly New Year’s Eve fun by celebrating the New Year numerous times throughout the day,” said Caitlyn Blacker, Marketing Director at Epic Waters. “This allows our youngest guests to experience NYE with their families before their bedtime rolls around!”
Get the full NYE experience with many epic upgrades available for purchase. Transport yourself to another country when you purchase one of our three cabana packages. Guests can visit the Hungry Wave Cafe to enjoy a prime rib dinner as well as some savory eats from around the world, like fish and chips from England, empanadas from Argentina, or ravioli from Italy! Families can enjoy various activities and contests throughout the day and night as well, including park-wide karaoke, virtual bingo, trivia and much more!
“Along with the rest of the world, we are anxious to see 2020 end,” Epic Waters General Manager, Michael Hays said. “We are excited to sail around the world with our guests and welcome in the New Year and the hope and promise that will come with 2021.”
