Grand Texas Theme Park set to open in 2015

MONTGOMERY COUNTY (KTRK) -- It's called Grand Texas, and if the plans are any indication, the new park in Montgomery County will live up to its name.

We first told you last year about developers' plan for a Texas themed amusement park in Montgomery County at Highway 59 and SH 242.

We now know the tentative opening date for the water park component is Memorial Day 2015. Plans are to open the amusement park, with designs for five roller coasters, around Memorial Day 2016.

Right now $40 million worth of infrastructure is in the early stages of installation.

The more than 600-acre venue will also include a motorsports park, a sports park with fields for baseball, soccer, lacrosse, rugby and seven on seven football, an RV park, along with hotels and restaurants.

"We are opening the project in phases," says Monty Galland, the project's developer, "and we have plenty of room for expansion."

Galland says their studies indicate that the complex will ultimately have the capacity for 3 million visitors a year, drawing from local, tourists, and participants in the athletic tournaments they exec to host at the sports complex.

The sports complex and motorsports park are expected to open in the Spring of 2015.
