The Typhoon Texas water park in Pflugerville is making a big splash with its first summer event May 29-31 for its opening over Memorial Day weekend.
Visitors can expect live music, in-park entertainment and family-friendly events, according to a news release. Park General Manager Cade Vereen said the water park will have a beach theme corresponding to the event.
“We’re more than just water slides and pools, your traditional water park,” Vereen said. “We really want that to come across during our Beach Bash event as well as future summer events.”
Typhoon Texas has a little over 400 active employees and is looking to fill more roles. The park aims to have 525 employees going into its daily operating season.
“We’ve really missed being able to be personable and engage with guests in the last year because of COVID-19 adjustments,” Vereen said. “We’re excited to get back to offering the best customer service as we operate a little more back to normal.”
The park is operating at a limited capacity to keep social distancing. However, the number of tables and seating areas has been increased to keep up with increased demand and the safety of the guests.
During the off season, Typhoon Texas increased the total lockers to 500 and added four more cabanas available to rent for relaxation, Vereen said. The water park also added an LED screen to greet guests with a display of what to expect during their visit. The park’s sanitation, pool equipment and pedestrian bridges have also been changed and upgraded.
Tickets begin at $21.95 for one-day admission and $64.99 for a season pass. www.typhoontexas.com
