  • Amber Ochoa says:

    I wanted to see if the Teacher’s Appreciation Week is only for Texas teachers or nationwide. Looking forward to bringing my family for our first visit!

      Hello Amber,

      Yes, nationwide just bring your teacher school ID. We would love for you family to join us from Little Rock!

  • Lind says:


    Wodering if this includes all school districts staff members such as paraprofessionals, attendance clerks etc.?


    • Jannett Cisneros says:

      Hello Lind!

      Yes, we will honor the free admission for paraprofessionals, school nurses, etc., you’ll just need to show school identification at check-in during that week. We hope you join us!

  • Shon says:

    Should we purchase tickets online for the 4 guest? Also, is it guaranteed admission? Can the free teacher ticket be purchased online?

    • Jannett Cisneros says:

      Hello Shon,

      We do recommend you pre-purchase your tickets online to guarantee admission, you may use the coupon code “TA19” for the 15% off your 4 guests. The free teacher admission will be granted upon your arrival, and yes it will be guaranteed.

      We hope your able to join us!

  • PRISCILLA says:

    So just to clariy, the teacher ticket is NOT requested/reserved online? It will be have to be requested at the admissions/entrance?

  • Gina R says:

    Our school does not give ids to staff. Is there something else you would accept?

    • Jannett Cisneros says:

      Hello Gina,

      If you can show us any type of teacher verification that your school provides, we will honor it. We hope you are able to join us!



  • Tanya says:

    does the teacher not need to purchase a ticket?
    if not, how will their admittance be guaranteed?
    Thank you!

    • Jannett Cisneros says:

      Hi Tanya,

      That is correct, just bring your Teacher ID and we will grant you the free admission. 🙂

  • Maribel says:

    I am purchasing a ticket for my son and I am bringing my school ID. That is all I need? I am an elementary counselor. 🙂

  • Amanda says:

    I am a teacher and will be bringing my family. Would my family be able to get the 25% discount on their tickets for the “stuff the bus” drive?

    • Jannett Cisneros says:

      Hi Amanda,

      Yes, if they bring in one school supply donation per ticket they will receive the 25% off. 🙂
      We are excited for you and your family to enjoy the park!

  • Hilda says:

    I don’t have my school ID on me. Can I bring a check stub and my Texas ID? It says I am a teacher on the check stub. Thanks!


    Thanks for doing this for educators! What time will we need to have our team at Epic Waters for the competitions?

    • Jannett Cisneros says:

      Hi Lesley,

      We would like to have all teams signed up by July 25th but will accept sign ups until July 27th. 🙂

  • Denise says:

    I’m a teacher and My boyfriend is a police officer for D.I.S.D. He is involved with explorers club at the school. Do we both qualify for the free teacher admission?
    Thank you!

  • Arcacia says:

    Hello, my husband is a teacher and will be purchasing 3 tickets one for myself and one for two of our kids. My husband won’t be in attendance so do his family still get a discount?

    • Jannett Cisneros says:

      Hello Arcacia,

      Unfortunately he would have to be present at check-in. A great alternative would be to bring in a school supply item from the suggested list above and you can receive 25% off admission for you and your kids! 🙂 Just make sure to bring one item per ticket to receive that discount. We hope to see you and your kids at the park soon!

  • amber says:

    Hi! I am a teacher and I am planning on visiting this week! I have 2 children. When I check out online, do I just use the coupon code for my 2 kids and not include a ticket for myself since I am free? Also, my friend will be joining me with her children and she will be brining in school supplies to get the %25 off. Does she just need to wait and purchase her tickets at the gate? Thank you! Super exited to visit Epic!

    • Jannett Cisneros says:

      Hi Amber,

      That is correct just purchase your children’s tickets online using the coupon code and yours will be granted upon arrival. 🙂 As for your friend, she will purchase her tickets upon arrival to receive the 25% off with her school supply donation. We are excited to have y’all join for an EPIC day! 🙂

  • Shenelle says:

    Thanks for the discount for Educators. My family and I are planning to come next Friday, August 2nd celebrating my son’s birthday. Will there be any discount for teachers on that day? Thanks!

  • Patrick McNeil says:

    Hello, my family and I are coming over from Mesquite and will plan to visit your indoor waterpark on either Saturday 7/27 or on Sunday 7/28. When I went online to purchase the tickets, the site said online tickets were unavailable for that day. Does that mean the park has sold out for Saturday 7/27? Also, if we come on Sunday and bring school supplies to help Stuff the Bus, can we purchase our tickets in advance (like on Saturday) to assure admission on Sunday? Thanks for your reply.

    • Jannett Cisneros says:

      Hello Patrick,

      The reason tickets are not available on Saturday, July 27 is because we will only be open 4:00 PM to 9:00 PM therefore just doing Twilight Swim that day. Teachers will still receive free admission, and everyone else will receive our discounted price in-park of $14 per person. We only sell tickets in-park for the day of, therefore if you are wanting to come on Sunday you would have to wait till Sunday to purchase your tickets. We recommend you arrive early, even if we are sold out online we always sell a limited amount of tickets in-park the morning of at a first come first serve basis.
      Thank you for reaching out to us, we hope to see you this weekend enjoying the park! 🙂

  • Mary says:

    Trying to purchase tickets to Saturday, the 27th, and none are available. Does that mean we’re can attend today?

      Hello Mary,

Teachers will still receive free admission, and everyone else will receive our discounted price in-park of $14 per person.
