After a successful debut in 2016, this new waterpark in Katy, near Houston, opens for its second season. Typhoon Texas is a family waterpark offering more than a dozen attractions. Visitors will find a large wave pool, lazy river, water play structure, children's attractions and four waterslide towers.
Typhoon Texas' ride lineup is diverse offering thrilling body slides, tube slides, and family raft rides. The park's Monster Storms slide tower features two signature attractions– The Typhoon and Twister. Typhoon is a Boomerango wall raft ride adorned with an iconic color scheme, the colors of the Texas flag. The Twister is a AquaSphere-Constrictor raft ride with winding, twisted flume.
Thrill-seekers will find The Duelin' Daltons tower offers a The Ballchute, a high-speed budy slide where you stand in a launch capsule while waiting for the floor to drop beneath your feet. Once it does, the ride begins with a steep six-story descent into a giant loop. The same tower offers four more sides, including two additional launch capsule speed slides.
Lone Star Racers is a side-by-side, headfirst racing slide you descend while riding on a foam mat. Typhoon Texas is also one of only a few parks to offer Slide Boarding, a video game and waterslide experience all-in-one. Seated on a slide board, you'll use a controller to fire at targets as you speed down this exciting waterslide.
For the park's youngest visitors Buckaroo Bayou and Howdy Hollow offer splash pads, shallow activity pools and miniature sized slides. You'll also find a 375,000 gallon wave pool called Tidal Wave Bay, a water play structure topped with an 800-gallon tipping water bucket, and a relaxing, meandering 480,000 gallon lazy river to float.
Typhoon Texas amenities include daily cabana rentals, changing rooms, locker rentals, and a variety of food and beverage options.
