Spanning close to four acres, Typhoon Jr. includes the waterpark’s iconic, four-story Gully Washer topped off with an 800-gallon water bucket, expanded splashpad with engaging water features, and new cabanas and lounge seating “to ensure moms and dads have a front-row seat for all the fun,” according to a news release. Several of the waterpark’s food-and-beverage options also are accessible from the new children’s area.
