Make a Splash at the Best Water Parks Around Houston

It’s hot out there, in case you hadn’t noticed. Summer? In Houston? Hot? We know, it’s strange but true. And the hotter it gets, the better water parks start to look. Luckily, the Houston area has plenty of options where you can get your splash on. Here are our favorite water parks in the area.

Typhoon Texas

This Texas-themed waterpark proves that everything is bigger here! With numerous slides to choose from, a tidal wave pool, lazy river, and even an interactive waterslide/video game combo, you’re sure to find something that’s your speed at Typhoon Texas. You can race your friends on the speedy Lone Star Racer slides, then see who has the nerve to face the 7-story open air free fall of The Gunslinger. Admission here ranges from $19.99 to $39.99 depending on the day.

Pirates Bay

Pirate’s Bay has every kind of water slide you could want: tube slides, body slides, speed slides, drop slides, and multi-person slides. They also have rental spaces available if you want to have a group of friends for a party. For those who might not be the strongest swimmers but don’t want to miss out on the fun, free lifejackets are available to borrow. Tickets are $25, but after 4 pm on weekdays, it goes down to just $10.

Wet ‘n’ Wild Splashtown

Water slides, cheerleading competitions, concerts…. It seems like there’s nothing Wet ‘n’ Wild Splashtown can’t do. This park offers a range of entertainment beyond simply the water attractions. But those water attractions are pretty great too. They have all the thrill rides you would normally find at a water park, plus some extras. Check out the Tornado, a 75 foot high, 134-foot long tunnel that ends in a giant swirling funnel. Or try your surfing abilities on the constant wave of the FlowRider. If you want to have a home base, you can rent a large cabana that comes with 4 meals, 4 beach towels, sunscreen, table service, and a locker rental. Tickets in start at $41.99.


Head to one of these fun parks to beat the heat this summer. Just remember to wear sunscreen so the only thing you take away from the day will be the memories, not a sunburn.
