HOUSTON – Typhoon Texas in Katy has announced it will open a new children’s attraction next year.

Typhoon Junior will open to the public for the park’s 2023 summer season. The addition will consist of child-sized rides modeled after the waterpark’s most popular waterslides.

“Most waterparks don’t offer much in terms of attractions for children under 48 inches beyond perhaps a splash pad,” Matt Girocco, general manager of Typhoon Texas, said in a statement. “We want to give our youngest patrons the same kind of waterpark experience the rest of the family enjoys.”

The new four-acre section will also boast an upgraded splash pad, numerous cabanas and lounge seating.

Access to Typhoon Junior will be included in the purchase of a general admission ticket or season pass.
