Gaylord Texan Resort, named the Best Family Getaway in Texas, is hosting festive family events as big as the Lone Star State this summer with Alice-themed activities for families as well as the grand opening of an all-new $5M water play structure at its outdoor water park. The exciting new seasonal programming is currently running through Labor Day weekend.
Families will enjoy an all-new $5M water play structure in addition to an itinerary full of fun entertainment themed after Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. Take a trip through the looking glass, with a variety of themed activities including a 4D walk through “Wonderland Adventure” attraction, “This Way & That Way” scavenger hunt, Cups & Canvases kids crafts, Hatter’s Tea Party, Queen of Hearts “Light Up the Night” Party, The Queen of Arts Local Art Walk and Giant Sand Sculptures from Wonderland.
Brand new this summer, the resort will also feature a free 3D visual light show, “Breaking Through the Looking Glass”, where stunning visuals, lights, music and sound effects take you down the rabbit hole as the indoor atrium structures are wonderfully transformed into a live canvas filled with spectacular Alice-themed imagery.
On select dates, Glass Cactus will host the “Electric Lake Festival” for families and adults. By day, families can enjoy a festival atmosphere featuring food & beverage concessions, a beer garden, games for the kids, retail booths, and rotating DJ’s! By night, those 21 and up can enjoy a live DJ concert series.
Additional SummerFest activities will include a Junior Chefs Camp for kids, happy hours, and spa specials. Out at the resort’s 10-acre outdoor water park, Paradise Springs, families will enjoy a 600-foot- long winding lazy river and a 6,000-square- foot family lagoon with a walk-in beach, two horseshoe-shaped hot pools, a 27-foot water slide, a designated toddler pool, and water basketball. Making the experience even bigger this summer, the resort has added a $5M water play structure featuring three additional winding waterslides, a variety of new water features, and more pool seating. And while kids play and relax at the pool, they will enjoy a live DJ, hair braiding, temporary tattoos, and more at the SoBe Splash Party!
