Hawaiian Falls Garland Part 3

Hawaiian Falls Waterpark Garland entrance

Though my friend and I were late arriving, it did not take us long to enter the waterpark.  At the entrance, we have to get a cooler pass because she brought one.  We agreed to split the fee of $10.  Our friends were waiting for us under the tree few steps further the entrance gate.  We did not rent a cottage or anything.

Hawaiian Falls Waterpark in Garland is a perfect place for family summer outing.  Thrill rides are available for grown ups and young kids over 48 inches tall.  Swimming pools and splash areas for kids are of great fun.

Someone had just zoomed down the The Flying Hawaiian And Monsoon.

I did not get to splash down this ride.  But my friend and I went to try the Rush, the big blue twirl on the right.  And boy it was nice!  There’s music playing in that thing that you can barely hear yourself screaming.  I am still waiting for my friend to tag me the photos from the ride.

Keiki Cove is the place for kids 12 years and younger. The bucket full of water pours down to the kids waiting underneath.

I had a great time with friends at the Hawaiian Falls Waterpark Garland.  Looking forward to go there again next year.

Aloha! Welcome to Hawaiian Falls

After having a snack, I put on my simple and conservative swimwear to get ready for the water adventure.  To be honest, this is the first Waterpark I have visited since I arrived in the US.  And so here I was posing and ready to go to the Waikiki Beach.  It is a wavepool where big waves are enjoyable.  I did not get to take pictures at the Waikiki Beach wave pool.  I’m sorry.

The Lazy River

From the wave pool, we tried the Lazy River.  The water currents go around the Cabana area.  Here we just went with the flow of the  water to rest for a while.  Tubes are available and free of charge.  You only have to wait for one.

It was a very pleasant day.  Water Parks like the Hawaiian Falls operate only during hot season or summer season.  So people take advantage of the nice weather and the heat of the summer sun to visit these places with family and friends to have fun as well as staying cool.  Hawaiian Falls Water Park accommodates special events like birthdays.  Even simple get-together parties can be held there too.  For inquires about the admission ticket pricing and season’s pass, go to Hfalls.com.

The view from my spot in the parking lot

I had a girls day out with friends this afternoon.  I was invited by one of my girl friends to go to Hawaiian Falls Water Park in Garland.  I thought it was a far away but I was wrong.  The place is like 30 minutes drive from my place.  Few of the girls already arrived at the Water Park about noon because some of them reserved admission tickets.  I thought I would be able to get there by 2 P.M. but didn’t.  Though I arrived very late at about 3 P.M., it was a good thing because my friend (whom I bought a ticket from) did not leave her house until 2:30 afternoon.  Upon arrival, I looked for a parking spot.  The parking area near the entrance was fully occupied.  It took me ten minutes driving around until I finally find a parking spot.  Above is a photo I took from where I parked.  You can see the big towering slide.  Just looking at it and hearing the guests scream as they slide gets me excited to in.  The entrance gate is located far to the right.

And man, I had difficulty parking.  Because I took my husband’s truck, parking was always a problem.  I thought I would be able to squeeze in between a car and a van.  What I did not see was the car left a very tight space for me to get in.  To avoid scratching the car, I had to move up to the sidewalk so I can maneuver the truck in the right position.  Whew!  Glad the truck has new tires.

Anyway, after a few minutes waiting, my friend arrived and met me at the Hawaiian Falls Water Park entrance gate.  She bought admission tickets online for a cheaper price.  The ticket prices are as follows:

$25.99 per person – 48 inches and over

$19.09 per person – under 48 inches, senior citizens, and military (with I.D)

Free Admission – children 2 years and under

$89.99 Seasons Pass – includes 2013 season

$10 Cooler Pass

$8 Locker rental – all day
