‘America’s Next Top Model’ Finalist Leah Darrow Inspires Crowd to Practice God-Honoring Modesty in Clothing, Speech and Actions

Leah Darrow is dressed in a stunning off-white blouse and stylish knee-length, multi-colored skirt. Her beauty – which won her the stage on the likes of America’s Next Top Model – shines through in her down-to-earth personality, which easily ingratiates her with just about anyone.

Something else that makes her so endearing: a book she co-authored called “Decent Exposure” that’s coming out in the next few weeks, her month-old baby – her first, named Agnes Regina – and her husband, Ricky Soldinie. The three live in Denver but came to Dallas this weekend so Darrow could speak at Modesty Matters – a Bible-based event at the Mansfield location of Hawaiian Falls.  (The founder of Hawaiian Falls, David Busch, has strong Biblical values that trickle into every part of the five Hawaiian Falls parks around North and Central Texas.)

Hawaiian Falls Garland to set record non-stop riding The Rush slide

Hawaiian Falls will celebrate its 10th birthday at its original waterpark in Garland on Monday, June 10. As part of the celebration, the public is invited to help set a record of 10 hours of continuous sliding down The Rush, a dark tube slide with multi-sensory special effects such as lights, misters and music.

“We are so excited to mark this milestone with our friends,” said Hawaiian Falls CEO David Busch. “First, we thank Garland’s city leaders who had the vision to join us in this amazing public-private partnership. And we want to recognize the loyal families who have made our park their own for the past decade. Many kids have grown up at our park. Some grew up and came to work with us. Many have gone on to start careers and families of their own. We’re blessed to be part of so many happy stories.” Read More»

It’s good to be 10, especially on 6/10 when Hawaiian Falls celebrates its 10th birthday by offering free admission for 10-year-olds at all five locations, with a reduced rate of $10 for ages 9 and younger.

The water park is also hoping to set a record  of people sliding down The Rush, a tube slide with lights, misters and music, for 10 consecutive hours, at its Garland site. The other sites are in The Colony, Mansfield, Roanoke and Waco.

Ten-year-olds must arrive before noon to get in free. Kids 9 and younger will need a special coupon, available at hfalls.com/bday, to get the $10 admission. Look for  food and drink specials at each park throughout the day on June 10, too.
