I went by Grand Texas on 9-15-17 and took a few pictures of the RV park, Raceway and Empty land that is to be Grand Texas Park. There was nothing to see really as the drone videos show.

According to the local news all the "underground" work is complete and the Water Park should start above construction in a month or so.

You can see my pictures here : https://1drv.ms/f/s!AtlHqTe1z5vQkrYpJWb4i36Sp7Ke8Q

On a side note a Big Texan came out and asked what I was doing in the RV park without a sticker on my window. LOL.

Pretty good article detailing the current state of development for the park.

This map shows the entire waterpark/adventure park complex.

New drone video from March 27th. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CXHVibFmjC4

Concrete has been poured for the lazy river's zero-entry pools and the play structure in the center, as well as one of the restaurants. The entry building is almost finished.

[EDIT] Construction on the Smokehouse restaurant, March 30th 2018:

Big Rivers construction progress as of April 6, 2018. Gator Splash, Polliwog Puddle, and Hatchling Hill areas with the landing and walkway have been poured. Cabana framing has begun as we start placing locations for our rental cabanas throughout the park. The entryway building now has a path and walkway poured with the location of a water feature to come soon. Finally, our restaurant framing and outer supports have gone up.


From the video it appears they've begun construction on the wave pool as well.
