Enjoy Epic Summer Nights in Grand Prairie

Make plans now to See Illuvia, an exclusive Vegas-style water and lights show.

The Bellagio-style lights of the Las Vegas strip have made it–in part–to North Texas with the all-new Illuvia water, projection, and lights show that runs nightly all summer long at EpicCentral in Grand Prairie. Make plans now for a quick getaway to Dallas-Fort Worth’s newest entertainment district to see the show—the first of its kind in North America. Bring the whole family to enjoy light installations, 60-foot water sprays, video projection, and a harmonizing soundtrack–all free to the public.

The signature Illuvia experience will continue to evolve seasonally with new features throughout the year, so chances are, you’ll want to return for each new installation. Built with 26 back jets and 11 moveable arms, the colorful water and light show seem to tell a story with each performance. The full installation can be viewed nightly with memorable performances, each different from the one before. The twilight shows feature water, lights, and music at 7:30 PM and 8:30 PM while we experience longer daylight hours. The full Illuvia experience featuring water, lights, music, and video projection, runs at 9:30 PM and 10:30 PM. During the day, fountain shows take place from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., returning at 5 p.m.

When Grand Prairie mayor Ron Jensen and city council members envisioned EpicCentral years ago, they knew it would be a special addition to the community. He says incorporating Illuvia into the mix makes it even more so. “We are excited to welcome Illuvia, a one-of-a-kind family-friendly experience for our community and visitors,” he says. “EpicCentral is on its way to becoming a top destination in the area, and we believe this new attraction will draw people of all ages to come and experience all we have to offer.”

While waiting for the next show, relax on the expansive lawn by the water and enjoy live music at Jambox, EpicCentral’s outdoor music venue that’s rocking most weekend nights and on holidays. Make time to enjoy lunch or dinner before or after the Illuvia show at one of the many surrounding restaurants, serving everything from seafood and chicken to barbecue and gourmet fare and cocktails.

Illuvia is the newest addition to EpicCentral’s unique selection of entertainment experiences which include Epic Waters Indoor Waterpark, Bolder Adventure Park, PlayGrand Adventures, surrounding trails, a dog park, and more. Coming soon—hotels and event and convention spaces.

Epic Waters, name a USA Today “10Best” waterpark, includes a giant wave pool, surfing simulator, swimming holes, twisting luges, and a new 70-foot-tall waterslide, Locura, with a 40-foot first drop, speeds up to 35 mph and 360-degree horizontal loop. Bolder Adventure Park is North Texas’ largest destination for thrilling adventures at 60,000 square feet, packed inside an air-supported dome structure. Bolder offers countless opportunities for exploration and high-energy fun, including rock climbing, zip-lining, archery, gem mining, skating, free-falling, and even a place to shoot squishy balls at your pals. Choose from 18 attractions, each tiered based on the level of adventure you want to tackle–green, blue, black diamond, and double black diamond. Bolder also has an arcade with more than 50 games.

An adventure like no other, EpicCentral is a 172-acre, family-friendly destination offering delectable food, unique experiences, and thrilling attractions. Centrally located in the heart of Dallas-Fort Worth, EpicCentral is located off State Highway 161 just north of Interstate 20.
