Typhoon Texas, a 43-acre water park, is under construction at the corner of Katy Fort Bend Road and Katy Mills Drive. Plans for the project began as far back as 2012, co-owner Terry Hlavinka said at the Aug. 20 ground breaking. The project was developed in cooperation with the city of Katy, and the opening is slated for May 2016.
“We saw a void for good, wholesome, quality family entertainment west of Houston,” Hlavinka said at the ground breaking.
Co-owners Keith Dalton of Kingham Dalton Wilson Ltd, and Ray DeLaughter of VantageCFO, were also on hand. Dalton is president and CEO of KDW, which will manage construction.
