The popular Houston-area water park will kick off the season with a four-day Welcome Back Beach Bash and several other events on Memorial Day weekend.

KATY, Texas — Typhoon Texas in Katy has added new water park attractions for younger kids just in time for the summer season.

Typhoon Jr. will feature five new junior-sized versions of its most popular waterslides designed for children up to 54 inches tall, Typhoon Texas announced Monday.

The four-acre area also includes the four-story Gully Washer topped off with an 800-gallon water bucket, an expanded splash pad and new cabanas and lounge seating for parents. 

Typhoon Texas will kick off the season with a four-day Welcome Back Beach Bash on Memorial Day weekend. They promise "a jammed-pack line-up" of giveaways, live music and family activities.
