The Hawaiian Falls chain began with the groundbreaking of Hawaiian Falls Adventure Park in Garland, Texas on December 18, 2002 by David Busch of Horizon Family Inc, a California based company that has worked with other waterpark properties in a few states, including Hawaiian Falls' sister park located on the island of Oahu in Hawaii. Busch wanted to start a more community based entertainment venue. The City of Garland City Council and the Parks and Recreation Board helped provide the land on which the waterpark was to be built. Construction for Hawaiian Falls began in January 2003.
Hawaiian Falls Waterparks is a family-friendly waterpark chain in the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex area, with four North Texas parks and one in Waco, Texas. Hawaiian Falls Adventure Park, now known as Hawaiian Falls Firewheel was the first park, opening in Garland, Texas in 2003. Hawaiian Falls Waterparks are focused on surrounding communities and their families.
The Hawaiian Falls Waterpark chain is owned by Harvest Family Entertainment, a faith-based company headquartered in The Colony, Texas.
