Hawaiian Falls Pflugerville will host Champions Day on Aug. 13 to bless the families of individuals with special needs.
The “Champions” (special needs children and adults) will get in free. One family member or caregiver accompanying them can get in for only $5, and additional immediate family members are also offered discounted tickets for $19.99.
Champions and their families will have exclusive access to the parks 8:30 a.m.-10 a.m. before the general public is allowed to enter. All parks will open to the public 10:30 a.m.-6 p.m. (Season pass holders always get in 30 minutes before the public.) Champions, caregivers and families can enjoy the park all day for no additional charge.
“Champions Day is often a special needs child’s first visit to a waterpark,” says Clint Hill, Hawaiian Falls president & CEO. “People with sensory issues can have difficulty processing the exciting stimulus of our waterparks on a normal day, so we turn the volume of our music way down during this special time. We ask our staff to be patient and a much more lenient to accommodate our guests’ special needs. We also bring in extra staff to provide additional assistance to our special guests on Champions Day.”
