Breaking the long-time drought of private waterpark development throughout North America is Typhoon Texas. The 25-acre water park in Katy, Texas will draw locals from all over the region, with an assortment of thrilling water slides, a 25,000-square-foot wave pool, a snaking lazy river and a dedicated kid’s area.
Typhoon Texas is brimming with fun and thrilling slides. From the twists and turns at The Snake Pit Inner Tube Slides to the thrilling drops and loops of The Duelin’ Daltons; an AquaDrop, Pool Sider, and Inner Tube slide, there is no shortage of exhilarating experiences to be found. However, there is one slide that seems to have created something of a bragging rights’ feat that has guests lining up over and over again to complete.
If you head over to the Monster Storms slide tower, you’ll see two six-person family raft slides, The Texas Twister, an AquaSphere + Constrictor Fusion, and the park’s eponymous Texas flag-covered Boomerango. It’s the shot of that Texas flag, covered with a raft of ecstatic riders that has become synonymous with Typhoon Texas. The Typhoon is as iconic for its look as it is for its must-do experience; guest after guest try their luck at touching the star. As the raft soars up the wall of the Boomerango, guests try their best to time the experience just right in order to complete the task and have the bragging rights to say that they’ve ‘touched the star’.
"Building a brand new water park from scratch is a huge undertaking. We knew if we were going to do it right it had to be big and it had to open on time. We needed a partner with the horsepower to get it done and WhiteWater was the right decision. A project of this scale took an incredible amount of teamwork and WhiteWater was with us every step of the way"
