Houstonians who need to cool off this summer will have plenty of new opportunities to dive in, as a just-announced floating park joins an already eagerly anticipated water park summer launch. 

The wildly popular Altitude H20, which recently christened a Dallas-area Grapevine center, will open a new Houston-area location. The water-based trampoline park bounces into Wake Nation, located in Rosharon, according to the official Facebook page. Details of the exact opening date have not been disclosed. 

For the uninitiated, Altitude H20 is the largest floating aqua park obstacle course in Texas, at a sprawling 25,000 square feet. Guests can expect the same attractions as the Grapevine location: an inflatable Witbit Aqua Park that features obstacles such as a balance beam, wiggle bridge, monkey bars, trampolines, and half-pipe. 

With partnering Wake Nation already offering cable wakeboarding and an aerial ropes course, the Altitude H20 inflatable obstacles, climbers, slides, trampolines, and half-pipe should make for the perfect theme park marriage. (Anyone looking for work as a manager, lifeguard, or cashier at Altitude H20 can email apply@altitudeh2o.com.)

Altitude H20 is just one of two new water parks coming to the Houston area this summer. The opening of Big Rivers Waterpark, which was slated for June 29, has been pushed back to mid-July, along with the Gator Bayou Adventure Park.  The parks, which are located in New Caney, have seen construction delayed due to inclement weather, according to the Big Rivers Facebook page.

As we reported, the 40-acre Big Rivers Waterpark will boast a wave pool and water slides, while Gator Bayou Adventure Park will offer a fishing hole, bumper boats, a petting zoo, and an alligator exhibit. Both parks will be part of the 632-acre Grand Texas entertainment venue located off of Hwy. 59 in New Caney. CultureMap will update the progress of both parks and their openings.
