MY FAVORITE WATERPARK IN HOUSTON- TYPHOON TEXAS
When i found out 3 years ago that a new waterpark was going to be opening in Katy, Texas ( A Houston Suburb), I was ecstatic. This would be the closest waterpark to me since the other ones in the Houston area are far away . Typhoon Texas opened for the first time in the summer of 2016. It is an ideal place for families to visit and spend time together. The pools are great for both adults and children.
Typhoon Texas is Houston’s premier family-friendly waterpark. The many water rides available include the Texas Twister where raft goers experience a serpentine adventure before zooming up a Texas-sized boomerang wall, the Duelin’ Daltons with its seven-story, free-fall slides, the eight-lane Lone Star Racers, the winding waterslides of the Snake Pit and the thrill of the Typhoon, where the fun of a winding waterslide collides with exhilaration of white water rafting.
Kids enjoy the Texas’ Gully Washer play area with its 800-gallon water bucket, more than 100 spray areas, eight platforms, seven different slides, Lazy river, wavy pool, water volleyball, elevated walkways and rope bridges.
Guests enjoy live music showcasing some of Houston’s best musical talent on Saturday and Friday Nights. There are also many dining options that include mouth-watering Roegels Barbecue, slow-smoked on-site daily, Pizza, Tacos , Soda Vending Machines etc .
For your comfort, safety and entertaiment, the park offers poolside cabanas, private lockers and newly constructed additional shade structures, rotating misters, retail carts, an upgraded movie night experience and additional on-site parking spaces.
I was privileged to visit Typhoon Texas this past weekend with my girls and nephew and we had a blast. We particularly enjoyed the lazy river because the water isn’t too deep for the kids and there were floats that allowed easy access across the river. There were also life jackets available for the little ones to use.
To visit this park with your family and friends, Go to http://www.typhoontexas.com to purchase season passes and day passes. Weekend and holiday single-day passes are $44.99. Weekday single-day passes are $39.99. Children under 48” tall, seniors 55 and over and military personnel (with military identification) are $32.99. Twilight rates after 5 p.m. are $25.
A perk of buying the season pass is that season passholders can enter Typhoon Texas Houston 30 minutes prior to opening every day, a great way to secure the parking and poolside seating of their choice. Other perks include a 2017 Typhoon Two-Step season pass for unlimited free admission to the all-new Typhoon Texas Austin.
While at the Typhoon Texas website, guests can sign up for special offers from the Typhoon Texas Double-T Club. Also, you can follow the waterpark at http://www.facebook.com/typhoontexas and on Instagram and Twitter @TyphoonTexas.
My kids have asked to go back to Typhoon Texas because they had so much fun and i did too. I will be going back in July with some friends and their kids and honestly, i can’t wait. I enjoyed The Thrill of the typhoon water ride, the wavy pool, the lazy river and loved playing water volley with some other guests. The Barbecue plate i had was delicious. The changing rooms and rest rooms were kept clean and there were life guards all around the pools which made me and the kids feel safe.
