Just when you thought Six Flags was done with Houston, the amusement-park empire is coming back here in a major way.

Coming this summer, popular water park Wet 'n' Wild SplashTown will be rebranded as Six Flags Hurricane Harbor SplashTown. Fifteen years after Six Flags' famed AstroWorld/WaterWorld complex permanently closed its gates, the Texas-based, fun-park corporation will bring some unique touches to the existing water park.

Along with new, Caribbean theming and improvements throughout the park, the biggest addition will be Wahoo Wave, an innovative, six-story water slide. This attraction will send four riders into near-vertical motions to experience extended hang times and zero g-forces. Riders plunge 30 feet straight down before sweeping up at high speeds as they arc across the top of a massive water wall, before descending into a refreshing pool below.

“We are thrilled to welcome Six Flags Hurricane Harbor SplashTown into the Six Flags family of parks,” says SplashTown president Jeffrey Siebert. “Six Flags is making a big investment in the park with the new Wahoo Wave and major updates for a bigger, better, wetter, island-like experience.

Hurricane Harbor SplashTown already has the most water rides and slides in the region, and now all members and season pass holders will have free, unlimited visits to Six Flags Fiesta Texas, Six Flags Over Texas and all Six Flags theme parks across the country. It’s an incredible value that only Six Flags can offer.”
