Katy water park Typhoon Texas invests $4M in new attractions for younger kids
11 Nov 2022
On Nov. 7, Typhoon Texas Waterpark and entertainment center announced plans to open a $4 million interconnected water park exclusively for children by summer 2023.
Construction on Typhoon Junior began in mid-October and is estimated to end in April ahead of Memorial Day. It is intended to offer kids a chance to grow with Typhoon Texas as they get older, according to officials.
The park-within-the-park will feature five new water slides for kids under 48 inches tall, all surrounding the Gully Washer attraction—an 800-gallon water bucket and four-story play place for kids ages 3-10. The Rain Fortress play structure has more than 100 spray areas, eight platforms, seven different slides, elevated walkways, rope bridges and a splash pad for children ages 2-4, which will be extended by half an acre once construction is completed.
