HOUSTON (CBS Houston)  Picture a new place for roller coasters, water parks, live music and entertainment for the entire family, and you have the makings of a new theme park coming to the Houston area.

Grand Texas will be a 70 acre park at Highways 242 and 59 north of New Caney in Montgomery County and will offer park-goers a one-of-a-kind experience.

Aside from the traditional attractions of an amusement park, the theme park will also feature an entertainment complex, hotels and restaurants.

Financed with private money, the park will also feature family-oriented exhibits and shows highlighting Texas history.

The cost for a family of four will be approximately $120 for a day with yearly memberships available for purchase.

According to the Grand Texas Park website, the park will also offer birthday parties for children, petting zoos, nature trails and train rides.

Construction will begin on the Grand Texas Theme Park in October to be ready for a grand opening in March 2015 providing all pre-development measures are in place.

The cost of the water park, theme park, amphitheater and paintball arena, supported by the Galland’s group, will cost approximately $119 million.

Additional developments of the eateries and lodging areas will add approximately $95 million to the overall cost of the venue. Click here to learn more about Grand Texas Park.
