Typhoon Texas Houston
Brand new water park behind Katy Mills Mall, opens May 2016
Ticket Price: $26.99 and up
This 25-acre park opened in 2016 and sports 30 waterslides, a massive wave pool, and a lazy river that stretches more than five football fields. Throw in the tacos, pizza, barbecue, and frozen cocktails served in hollow-out pineapples, and you’ll do just fine here on any hot summer day. Check the calendar before buying tickets, so you can time your visit to the summer concert series, where performers take the stage to provide a live soundtrack to the day’s festivities. There’s also a Typhoon Texas located just outside Austin, giving you another option for water slides and corn dogs. Try one or hit them both.
