Memorial Day weekend is the traditional kickoff to summer, but it also represents an important holiday recognizing those who made the ultimate sacrifice for freedom. Observed on the last Monday of May, Memorial Day honors the men and women who died while serving in the U.S. Armed Forces.
In honor of those heroes, Hawaiian Falls will offer free admission (with one paid admission) Friday, May 28 – Monday, May 31, for any active-duty military personnel and veterans. Active-duty personnel can show their military ID card at the front gate. Veterans can show their DD-214 form or any state-issued photo ID with a “Veteran” designation. As always, kids age 2 and younger are free.
“We’re proud to honor our servicemen and women and veterans,” said Hawaiian Falls Managing Director Ryan Forson. “We can’t think of a better way to officially kick off the summer season than to invite them to come relax and enjoy the day at one of our waterparks over the Memorial Day holiday.”
Hawaiian Falls waterparks in Mansfield, Roanoke and Waco are open Saturday, May 22 and Sunday, May 23 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Season passholders get in 30 minutes before the general public.
Beginning Thursday, May 27, the waterparks will open daily for the rest of the summer. Hours for Memorial Day weekend are as follows:
Thursday, May 27 – 11 a.m. – 5 p.m.
Friday, May 28 – 10:30 a.m. – 8 p.m.
Saturday, May 29 – 10:30 a.m. – 8 p.m.
