Grand Prairie, TX (May 5, 2023)- American Resort Management announces today that Epic Waters Indoor Waterpark in Grand Prairie, TX was awarded a top three spot amongst 10 contenders for the Best Indoor Water Park by USA Today10Best Readers' Choice 2023 Travel Awards! The Top 10 parks received the most votes from 20 indoor water parks nominated by a panel of experts as the top indoor water parks in the United States. To be crowned one of the best, fans were asked to vote for their favorite indoor waterpark online over a four-week period.

"It's an honor and a thrill to be recognized as a top indoor water park in the nation." said Richard Coleman, CEO of American Resort Management, the operators of Epic Waters Indoor Waterpark. "We want to thank the USA Today 10Best Readers' Choice 2023 Travel Awards experts for the nomination and our legion of fans for voting for us.

The announcement comes shortly after Epic Water's recent launch of the all-new Locura Water Slide. Standing at over 70 feet tall, Locura is a flatline water slide that combines the anticipation of the AquaLaunch® Capsule with the visual impact of the looping 387-foot translucent flume. Locura is designed to build anticipation the moment the riders begin their ascent to the top of the seven-story launch tower.

"We're thrilled that Epic Waters has been recognized as one of the top indoor water parks in America!" said Ron Jensen, Mayor of the City of Grand Prairie. "The City of Grand Prairie and our partners at American Resort Management have worked hard to create a world-class facility that provides guests with a fun and memorable experience.
