Grab your sunscreen, Pflugerville: Typhoon Texas has announced its summer 2020 reopening date.

The outdoor water park will open May 29, said John Pham, Typhoon Texas' director of brand management, in a May 26 call to Community Impact Newspaper. The confirmation follows the company's Facebook Live announcement that the park will resume services this weekend.

Pham said that all guests, including season pass holders, will be required to make a reservation prior to visiting the park, with reservations accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. Day tickets are available for purchase and will also cover visits for the duration of the summer, paired with reservations, Pham added.

Typhoon Texas Chief Financial Officer Ray DeLaughter said at a May 20 Pflugerville Community Development Corp. meeting that the park has revisited and updated its operational plans in accordance to the pandemic. General Manager Ty Weitzel added May 20 that staff are abiding by all state and local ordinances.

Weitzel said staff will wear face masks in air-conditioned spaces, and lifeguards will have the choice to wear masks while not in the water. All cashiers will wear face masks, with food handlers using both masks and gloves, Weitzel said. He added that all tables and furniture at the water park will be positioned in a social distancing friendly manner.
