Most of us can barely afford to go on vacation. And when we do, we usually end up not even leaving Texas. That's OK because there's tons of stuff to do in Texas, including a brand new water park: Epic Waters in Grand Prairie.

As if you needed another reason to hit up the DFW Metroplex, there is now a big new water park to experience. Except this one has a retractable roof (kind of like Cowboys Stadium) and it's open year-round so you can splish-splash even in winter.

Epic Waters in Grand Prairie just opened, and it looks freakin' sweet. It boasts some firsts in America, too, including the Lasso Loop (which is a body slide with a loop in it), a drop slide, inner tube slides, race slides, surfing rides and many more. And all of this is inside!

The park is open now and will be open year-round (with a few exceptions). Plan a visit today at their website.
