Water Park

The Wave by EPIC will be a 50,000+ SF family friendly water park in Fargo, ND and will have features for everyone. The proposed indoor water park will be the largest indoor water park within a 180-mile radius. Larger indoor water parks offer more activities and typically attract stronger demand. The Wave will include a lazy river, thrilling slides, kids splash pad and an activity pool. The Wave will also include cabanas, self-use locker, a snack bar and a connected parking ramp with 500 stalls. The Wave will be open to the public with day passes.

Hotel

With the development of The Wave by EPIC, a hotel will be the perfect compliment to it’s guests and visitors. This hotel will be attached to the 40,000+ SF waterpark. The 7-story hotel will hold 125 hotel rooms, with some having patios, a first floor restaurant with lounge, dedicated meeting/function space and party rooms, an arcade, high speed internet, and complimentary parking.

EPIC Charities

EPIC Charites, Inc. will work in conjunction with the Fargo, ND, West Fargo, ND and Moorhead, MN park districts, school districts and other youth and community focused organizations to provide subsidies, discounts and free passes that allow for use of its facilities by disadvantaged and underserved members of the community. The main goal is to provide a space that serves the community and is a destination location for the entire state of North Dakota.
