Looking forward to Winterfest 2018
While Typhoon Texas managed to avoid damage from Harvey’s flood waters, the same can’t be said for the decorations and lights used for the park’s holiday celebration, WinterFest. Stored offsite in a nearby facility, decorations and lights for WinterFest were damaged due to flooding, leaving the waterpark with no choice but to cancel this year’s event. “We tried to save as much as we could, but the damage was just too much,” said Typhoon Texas General Manager Evan Barnett. “We’ll certainly look at all options for 2018.”

The good news
As for the waterpark, it re-opened to big crowds about a week after Harvey’s landfall with no reported damage from the storm. Typhoon Texas completed its second season weeks later in September. “It was another terrific summer season for the waterpark,” Barnett added. “As always, we’ll use the off season to look at ways to enhance every aspect of the Typhoon Texas experience.”Season passes for Typhoon Texas’ 2018 season are now on sale TyphoonTexas.com.
