Despite Rain New Water Park Opens In Pflugerville

Updated: Wednesday, June 11 2014, 04:59 PM CDT

Despite Monday's rain, Hawaiian Falls opened its doors in Pflugerville as the latest water park in Central Texas.

"I want to go on the slides and everything," said Julian Acevedo.

"I'm just really excited," says Jenna Dygert-Swenson, who has spent months waiting for the water park to open.  "Every time we go to the store we'll drive past it and say, 'oh, look, there's something new."

Her mother, Jen Dygert, says, "As a family we've been looking forward to this a lot."

It didn't take long for the rain to go away. "Like they say, wait five minutes and the weather will change, so we did," says Dygert.

Initially set to open Memorial Day weekend, Hawaiian falls has had delays in the past few months due to rain and ice.

CEO David Busch says, "Everything came together, the rain stopped for a while, now it's back today but we were able to finish up the work we had to finish up."

But now, there's a new controversy.

One of the 200 contractors is accusing Hawaiian Falls of failing to pay them.

We asked Busch about the issue. He said, "I know we'll resolve it and if you kindly just take a look at our statement, I'd like to refer you to that."

In the statement, spokesman David Alvey says:

"We have tried to work with them towards a resolution, but they chose to be confrontational. We will continue to work towards a resolution or let a court of law determine the validity of their claim."
