Announcing Schlitterbahn Cedar Park

Schlitterbahn's big announcement was for a massive water entertainment resort complex located in Cedar Park, Texas. The first phase of the development is scheduled to open in the summer of 2012. And no, it's not just your eyes that keep reading it as "Schlitterbahn Cedar Point," it's mine, too!

The project is really much more than just a water park, though. It contains the Schlitterbahn Boutique Hotel and Conference Center, a retail section, and restaurants along side the water park. Speaking of that, it will utilize the trademark Schlitterbahn Transportainment system and from the art looks to contain several master blaster slides.

When completed, the destination will span 95 acres and cost $360 million.

The first phase to open will cover some 75 acres and represent a staggering $75 million investment. It will open as a fully functional year-round resort.

How wonderful is it to see companies investing in entertainment destinations again? Three cheers for Schlitterbahn.
