Typhoon Texas, Katy's new, sprawling 43-acre water park, opened just in time for Memorial Day this year.
But when temperatures finally cooled (well, sort of) this fall, the park transformed itself completely.
Since Thanksgiving, Typhoon Texas has put on WinterFest, an outdoor holiday-themed festival. Attractions include a giant slide, ice skating, light displays, Santa Claus and his workshop (for kids), a bar (for their parents) and concessions. Tickets are $20 for children and $25 for adults.
WinterFest runs through December 31.
Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
