“Hau`oli La Makuakane” (Happy Father’s Day) to all the Dads, Papas, Daddios, Pops and Grampas who lead their family so well. Your dad may be known for his grillin’ skills. Or maybe he’s the handyman who can fix anything with some bailing wire and a piece of chewing gum. Whether he’s the World’s best sportsman or an armchair quarterback, we want to honor all Dads and Grandfathers this Father’s Day weekend at Hawaiian Falls in Mansfield, Roanoke and Waco with a free day pass.
“Whether you’re a new dad just learning the ropes, a seasoned pro or even a grandpa, we want to recognize you with a carefree day at one of our waterparks,” said Ryan Forson, managing director of Hawaiian Falls. “Kick back in a lounge chair while your kids play in the waves. Challenge your kid to a race down one of our slides. Or grab a couple tubes and float down the Lazy River with the whole family. There’s nothing more rewarding for us than to hear dads laughing and splashing with their kids.”
Fathers receive free admission Saturday, June 19, and Sunday, June 20, when accompanied by a child with a Big Kahuna day ticket or a season pass. As always, kids age 2 and under are free. In addition, if dad already has a Hawaiian Falls Season Pass, he can “Bring a Friend Free” over Father’s Day Weekend.
Hawaiian Falls season passholders can always enter the waterpark 30 minutes before the general public as one of the many benefits of being a passholder.
The whole family will enjoy the daily Ohana Games, led by the activity director at each park. Ohana means “family,” and with themes such as Splashing Saturday; Bubbles & Balloons Sundays; Art Master Monday; Toss it Up Tuesday; Waimea Wednesday; Kua Kua Thursday; and Baller Friday, there’s plenty of fun to be had every day at Hawaiian Falls.
Each waterpark is filled with exciting attractions, including new attractions such as the Coconut Cove activity pool in Roanoke with water basketball and a floating obstacle court; Turtle Bay featuring five slides and a floating obstacle course in Mansfield; and Kona Bay’s multi-level waterslide adventures in Waco.
Everyone will find something to love with all the delicious food options, ranging from the hamburger, hotdog and chicken finger meals to craft pizzas. And everyone loves the Dole Whip, a swirled-pineapple soft-serve ice cream dessert. There’s also a refreshing new Slushie treat that is sold by the yard in a variety of flavors.
Discounted season passes, including special perks such as two free Buddy Passes per season pass, are available for a limited time online and at the parks. Father’s Day weekend is the last chance to buy 2021 Season Passes before prices increase June 21. Special event information, park hours, directions and ticket information are available at hfalls.com.
