The cartoon horse speaks! Alas, Grand Texas Theme Park’s well-heeled mascot isn’t saying where you’ll join him. But at least the theme park’s website is now open, claiming that developer Monty Galland “has determined three different desired sites: Two are in Montgomery County, while the other is in Fort Bend County.” And there are now several new renderings of the park’s proposed “territories” with detailed descriptions of the Texas-themed activities and amenities to come.
You’ve already seen “Main Street,” rendered above, which will have restaurants, a hotel, a saloon with a poker parlor, and a jail. Here, “you can get a feel for an old fashion stockade,” says the park’s website, “but there are plenty of other fun activities like getting a Wanted Poster made, putting a Bounty on your favorite guest, or make your own western movie, complete with a showdown at high noon.”
Here’s “Flint Ranch.” It’ll have a petting zoo. And “The Tractor Trail,” where you can “drive a tractor along a winding trail, through crops and a barn filled with fun and singing:”
“Wild Texas Frontier” will have an obstacle course, a maze, and a zipline, with “Quanah Village . . . a reproductioin of a Commanche Village” down near the hiking trail and canoe launch:
No trip would be complete without a turn through the paintball course! Here’s “Gunslingers:”
“Gunslingers” will also have “a sufficient snackbar providing the essential nourishment of any warrior.”
A midway’s planned for Grand Texas, as well, called “Pecos Bill’s Jamboree.” But there’s no rendering available for that. The park’s website claims two different opening dates: March 11, 2014, and March 12, 2015.
