Katy, TX News (August 20, 2015) – Groundbreaking occurred today on Typhoon Texas, a new water park in Katy, Texas. The park is being constructed as part of a 43-acre development east of Katy Mills Mall on Katy Fort Bend Rd., just south of I-10.
Typhoon Texas will offer some of the best new rides and attractions available in the industry, including the new interactive game called Slide Boarding, which combines the water slide experience with gaming. Scott Haycock, a representative of WhiteWater, states, “This ride selection is the best to be offered in North America in the last decade. Kids and adults will absolutely love this waterpark!”
Aquatic engineer, Terry Brannon, is quick to point out other attributes of the waterpark, stating, “Typhoon Texas will utilize advanced filtration technology and high turnover rates to provide the cleanest water of any park currently operating in the United States.”
This project has been in the planning stages for almost three years and has finally become a reality. The project team was determined to fill the void of an entertainment venue on the west side of Houston. “Our desire has been to build a fun project that adds value to the community. We have been extremely fortunate to have friends and family members that were willing to join us in this venture,” said Terry Hlavinka, who resides in East Bernard.
The project commenced construction on schedule and will open in May of 2016. Per Ray DeLaughter, “Due to investor support, we are well-capitalized and financed by Texas Capital Bank. With KDW as the general contractor, we expect no issues meeting our target opening date of May 2016.”
