As the Texas heat builds, keep it cool at Katy’s Typhoon Texas Waterpark. This watery wonderland is already open on weekends for the 2021 season, and will be open daily starting May 28. You can get your vitamin D, plenty of thrills, and make lots of great memories with your crew, all in one place.
Thrills & Chills
This 25-acre water park next to Katy Mills features water slides, splash parks, and activities suitable for all ages. There are nine different high-intensity slides, including the supersized Monster Storms: A six-person raft that speeds down a giant serpentine, complete with a Texas-sized boomerang wall. Test your courage on The Duelin’ Daltons, where you plunge down a near-vertical chute before heading into a series of twists and turns and splash-land in the exit pool. For those not tall or brave enough for the heart-pounding rides, there are also two splash parks, the Howdy Hollow adventure pool, a wave pool, and the relaxing lazy river.
Typhoon Texas typically hosts a summer concert series with a variety of musical acts and activities, although the 2021 lineup has yet to be announced. Local artists also perform poolside at Tidal Wave Bay. There are 10 different restaurants and snack bars throughout the park where you can fuel up for more fun, and the full-service Double T Bar serves up craft beer, cocktails, and live music – there’s even a happy hour from noon to 2 PM, Monday through Thursday.
