Hawaiian Falls in The Colony dumped one ton of ice into the wave pool Monday.

Texas' triple-digit heat is expected to be in high-gear this week, sending temperatures climbing to over 100 degrees every day as we experience some of the hottest weather yet this summer.

That forecast is prompting folks at Hawaiian Falls in The Colony to go to extremes to keep their pools cool.

At about 2 p.m. Monday, the park will attempt to cool down their tepid Breaker Bay wave pool, and hundreds of screaming, excited guests, with 2,000 lbs of crushed ice.

The park first did their 1-ton ice dump during the record heat wave in the summer of 2011.

After this week, NBC 5 meteorologist Grant Johnston said high temperatures may drop below 100 on Saturday and Sunday as a slight chance for rain moves into the Metroplex.  But, even with highs in the high 90s, it'll still be plenty hot.

Hawaiian Falls in The Colony is located at 4400 Paige Road. The company has three other water parks in DFW, all with presumably warmer water, in Mansfield, Garland and Roanoke.
