NEW CANEY - After setbacks and delays, a water park, an RV park and a kart-racing track are under construction at Grand Texas—a 632-acre amusement park development in New Caney at the intersection of Hwy. 59 and Hwy. 242.
Speedsportz Racing Park and Grand Texas RV Resort are projected to be complete this fall after heavy spring rain and infrastructure construction delayed the projected summer completion.
Big Rivers, the water park within Grand Texas, is on track to open by spring 2017.
Once Big Rivers is complete, construction will begin on Grand Texas’ namesake-bearing 200-acre amusement park.
The Grand Texas Theme Park will feature five roller coasters, dozens of rides and an emphasis on live entertainment.
The theme park will be about the same size as Six Flags AstroWorld —a 57-acre theme park that was located in southwest Houston until it closed in 2005.
The park will continue to expand after opening in 2020.
In addition, Grand Texas will feature a factory outlet mall, a sportsplex that includes ten multiuse sports fields, four hotels and 450,000 sf of retail and dining in the Downtown Texas section upon completion.
