Splashtown is Houston’s largest and closest water park located in Spring, Texas. On May 2 the water park reopened after a multi-million dollar transformation with three new rides and attractions: Big Kahuna, a mega-family raft ride; FlowRider, the ultimate body boarding experience and Wet ‘N’ Wild Jr., a wildly fun kid’s area.
Younger visitors will get the VIP treatment when they step into their own world of wet thrills at Wet’n’Wild Jr., an expanded kid’s area that will include eight exciting water slides, including a double body slide and triple track racer; an extreme gushing spray tower; a continuously drenching waterfall as well as jumping spray fountains that little visitors can frolic through. Big Kahuna is an exciting, mega-tube serpentine raft ride that will blast visitors into a dark, enclosed tunnel filled with a series of unpredictable twists and turns, breathtaking drops, and back-to-back curves. The five-person raft will then shoot through the tunnel opening, splash through the wildly fun s-shaped waterway while catching some major hang time along high bank walls before hitting splashdown into the catch pool.
And finally, FlowRider is an innovative surfing experience that is both a visual spectacle and intensely fun as endless sheets of perfect waves roll out at 35 mph, moving 30,000 gallons of water per minute. Wet’n’Wild is brand-new after renovations and perfect for a family-friendly day-trip this summer.
