Special After Hour Events Saturday, July 3, plus Extended Hours Friday, Sunday & Monday


Hawaiian Falls Roanoke has big plans for the Independence Day holiday weekend. The waterpark will participate in the city’s “Roanoke's 3rd Rocks” holiday celebrations, and will offer extended hours for the weekend. 

“The holiday weekend is the perfect time to gather friends and family and visit one of our waterparks,” said Ryan Forson, Managing Director of Hawaiian Falls. “No matter the age, everyone in the family will have fun playing in the water, floating down the Lazy River, or racing down the slides. Or maybe you just want to relax in the shade while the kids play. There’s certainly something for everyone this weekend.” 

Kicking off the holiday weekend, the waterpark will open at 10:30 am to 8:00 pm on Friday, July 2nd. Hawaiian Falls season passholders get entry to the waterpark 30 minutes before the general public as one of the many benefits of being a passholder.   

Hawaiian Falls Roanoke will open from 10:30 am – 5 pm on Saturday, July 3. Of course, season pass holders can get in as early as 10 am.  The park will close at 5 pm to make way for the City’s “Roanoke's 3rd Rocks” celebration! 

During this special “After Hours” ticketed event, Hawaiian Falls Roanoke will feature live entertainment, including hula dancers, drummers and fire breathers. Guests will have the best seat in town, and the most refreshing, to view the fireworks from the Hawaiian Falls wavepool. Tickets are very limited. More information is available at .

Hawaiian Falls Roanoke will open Sunday, July 4th, and Monday, July 5 with extended hours from 10:30 am – 8 pm.

The waterpark is filled with exciting attractions, including new attractions such as the Coconut Cove activity pool featuring water basketball and a floating obstacle court. 

Everyone will love all the varied food options, including a Fourth of July combo meal with a hot dog, chips, drink and a slice of apple pie for only $7 (while supplies last.)  Other food options range hamburgers, hotdogs and chicken finger meals to craft pizzas. And everyone loves the Dole Whip, a swirled-pineapple soft-serve ice cream dessert. There’s also a refreshing new Slushie treat that is offered by the yard in a variety of flavors.
