As local families plan their Memorial Day weekend, a popular west Houston water park is welcoming the masses. Katy-area Typhoon Texas will reopen with a three-day Welcome Back Beach Bash from Saturday, May 29 through Monday, May 31, the venue announced.

The long-weekend event features live music, strolling in-park entertainment, and family-friendly activities.

Main attractions, no doubt, are the park’s more than a mile of winding, twisting slide paths; Texas-size wave pool; a lazy river that’s the length of more than five football fields; and children’s Gully Washer with a gigantic, 800-gallon water bucket, slides, and more than 100 spray areas.

Day-admission tickets start at $39.99 and season passes start at $69.99. An even cheaper option is the and choose-your-day admission tickets, which start at $22.99. Tickets can be purchased at the window or online

A cashless pay wristband, discount coupons for in-park purchases, and a discounted 2021 any-day guest ticket are also perks.

More eats include foot-long corn dogs, ice cream sundaes, warm pretzels hand rolled onsite, and a water park fave, Dippin’ Dots ice cream.
