Crews are still working on the water park off I-10 near Iowa in Jeff Davis Parish.
So far no official date on when Little Kahuna could open.
Judging from I-10, it looks like the park is overgrown with weeds and none of the water slides are ready, but looks are deceiving.
We did speak with the owner of Little Kahuna who says they're working feverishly to try and get the park ready even if they're open for one week during the summer. Crews say they've had lots of issues to deal with including weather delays. They haven't been able to put the finishing touches on the lazy river and the water slide. Crews are retouching the slides and park with paint and trying to finish the landscaping.
The park has hit snags along the way. They were closed for two years dealing with permit issues. That has all been worked out and they are moving forward.
The owner says as long as the weather cooperates, they'll be finished before summer is over. He hopes within the next few weeks they'll have job postings on the Little Kahuna Facebook page.
