            “We’re getting busier!” said Steve Stafford, general manager of the North Texas Jellystone Park in Burleson, near Fort Worth.. The park’s two 65-foot tall, 350-foot-long tubular water slides are opening on Friday along with the Pirate’s Cove Waterpark next door. The park’s new 260-foot-long pirate ship, which features 10 two-bedroom cabin suites, has been open for several weeks.

            Also opening Friday is the dinosaur-themed water zone at the Jellystone Park in Canyon Lake, which features water cannons, slides, blasters, a hydrostorm as well as a splash pad. The Jellystone Park in Kerrville will also open its 19,000 square-foot interactive water zone and water slides the same day. The Kerrville location’s waterslides are 196-, 242-, and 334-feet long.
