Discover Houston water parks: How to get the most out of your day at Typhoon Texas

By Bess Krasoff - Digital News Intern

HOUSTON - Throughout the summer, KPRC2 will be featuring Houston's many water parks in hopes of inspiring fun for you and your family.

Considered one of the newer Houston water parks - Typhoon Texas opened in May 2016 - and is offering all the water fun you might expect, but also music and movie nights. 

Along with its selections of water slides, a lazy river and a tidal wave bay, Typhoon Texas is bringing in different local artists all summer along and has four movie nights at the park.

Last year, it opened a full-service bar on property.

The Slides

  • The Snake Pit: This slide has a 48-inch height requirement. Double and single tubes go down the slide, twisting and turning like a rattlesnake. 

  • Lone Star Racers: These slides allow riders to race each other down. The slide has a 42-inch minimum height requirement.  

  • The Typhoon (Texas Flag Slide): A six-person raft speeds up the Texas-sized boomerang wall.

  • The Twister (Yellow & Blue): This slide is perfect for families and has the element of both a fast water slide and white water rafting. 

  • The Bullchute: This open-air slide drops riders down a 7-foot free fall.

Kid-friendly rides

  • Tidal Wave Bay: This 375,000-gallon pool is a great spot to thrill seek or relax in the shallow end. The waves are up to three feet tall. 
  • Buckaroo Bayou: This is the spot for toddlers and kiddos. There are mini slides and splash pads. 
  • The Gully Washer: Primarily for kids 3 to 10, this area has over 100 spray areas, eight platforms, seven different slides, elevated walkways and rope bridges. 
  • Lazy T River: Relax and float the lazy river with family.
