Katy: Gully Washer slated for Typhoon TexasKaty: Gully Washer slated for Typhoon Texashttps://www.recenter.tamu.edu/news/newstalk-texas/?Item=130102016-05-03T05:00:00Z2016-05-03T20:20:00Z

​​​KATY - The newest water park in the Greater Houston area is set to open May 28.

Typhoon Texas—a new 25-acre water park adjacent to Katy Mills—features nine massive water rides, multiple dining options and a slate of summer activities, including movies, concerts and a summer camp.

The water park was a joint idea of Dalton and fellow co-owner Terry Hlavinka. The pair attended Texas A&M University and have worked on other construction projects together in the past.

We wanted it to be fun. We took about six months studying the market, we focused on something entertainment-related,” Hlavinka said. “We both came up with a crazy idea of building a water park.”

The result of all their planning is one of the largest water parks in the state with one-of-a-kind rides and amenities, said Steve Mayer, the park’s marketing director.

“This is the biggest privately built water park in the United States in the past ten years,” Mayer said. “The park will be lit at night, and we’ll do private corporate picnics and church events.”

The Typhoon Texas project was accepted because of the high standards set by Dalton and Hlavinka.

Mayer said there will be nine different water features, including rides for thrill-seekers, options that allow up to six people to ride together and a new feature ride that mixes gaming with a water slide where competitors can track progress on their cellphones.
