COVID-19 & Summer 2022
How is Typhoon Texas responding to COVID-19?
Typhoon Texas is closely monitoring public health developments as they continue to evolve. Although we're about Good, Clean, Fun, rest assured we take cleanliness seriously. The safety of our Guests and Team Members will always be our priority.
How will you promote social distancing?
Typhoon Texas will operate within capacity and social distancing guidelines when those are established by Texas Governor Greg Abbott. Decals and markers will be added to help guests maintain a safe distance while at our attractions and food and beverage outlets. Several loungers, cabanas and seating areas also have been removed to help parties keep a safe distance from one another.
Am I required to wear a mask during my visit to Typhoon Texas?
Masks are strongly recommended but not required at Typhoon Texas.
Do I need to make a reservation for the 2022 season?
We are not currently planning to require reservations for the 2022 Season.
What other cleanliness initiatives have you established?
We have significantly increased our efforts to sanitize and disinfect all high touch points in the waterpark. In addition, all loungers, cabanas and seating areas will be cleaned and disinfected once a group leaves. Restrooms will close every hour for cleaning and disinfecting.
How are you managing the water quality in pools and attractions?
The waterpark’s filtration system reduces impurities to one micron, far below traditional pool filters that remove to 20-40 microns. Pool chemistry is electronically monitored on a real-time basis with manual testing conducted at least every hour for each attraction. Pools and attractions are filtered every hour, except the lazy river and wave pool which are filtered in under two hours. State code requires a turnover under six hours on most public swimming pools.
What about your team members?
Our Team Members understand the importance of maintaining a safe and healthy workplace and waterpark experience for our guests. Each will be required to wear a mask while on their shift until further guidance is provided. Team Members who are ill for any reason know to stay home until they are well.
What about hand sanitizers? Are you installing more?
Typhoon Texas will continue to operate hand sanitizers throughout the park in areas including our restrooms, event spaces and food & beverage outlets.
Can the COVID-19 virus spread through pools and hot tubs?
There is no evidence COVID-19 can be spread to humans through the use of pools and hot tubs, according to the CDC.
Am I allowed to bring my own food or beverages into the park?
For everyone's safety, guests are not permitted to bring coolers or outside food or beverages into Typhoon Texas Waterpark with the exception of one factory sealed bottle of water per person. Grills and open fires are not allowed in the parking lot. Allergies? The park is more than happy to provide guests with ingredients lists that are provided to us by the food suppliers we use. However, as much as we would like to accommodate guests with food allergies, we are not the food manufacturers/suppliers (we get all food and beverage product from third parties), and as such, we regret to inform you that THE PARK CANNOT, AND DOES NOT, MAKE ANY REPRESENTATIONS OR GUARANTIES WHATSOEVER REGARDING THE ALLERGY-FREE CONTENTS OF ANY FOODS OR BEVERAGES, OR THE SAFETY THEREOF (ESPECIALLY WITH REGARD TO ANY ALLERGIES). At a minimum, guests with allergy concerns should avoid any foods or beverages unless they are packaged, and you are 100% confident in the manufacturer/supplier, which has provided the Park with such food or beverage. Foods that are in any way unpackaged, prepared, or handled by the Park (as opposed to packaged goods, provided to you in a sealed package), have a higher risk of contamination with other products containing allergens, so in the interests of your safety, we strongly urge you to avoid all such unpackaged products provided by the Park. In any event, guests may bring personal-sized amounts of food into the park, to the extent that they are medically necessary (e.g., for diabetics, baby formula for infants, gluten-free foods, or allergy-safe foods for allergies). Typhoon Texas will provide a medical sticker to be displayed in these particular instances.
I have food allergies and a medical need to bring my own food...
Guest who suffers from food sensitives or life-threatening allergies may bring food into the park ONLY if their dietary restrictions do not allow the consumption of the menu options available. In this case, the food must be limited to the individual with the allergy and may not exceed: a 12”x12”x12” bag, and must be a soft-sided cooler of that size. Please see the bag check Team Member at Typhoon Texas Austin to receive a Dietary Restriction sticker.

What is the dress code for appropriate attire at the park?
In keeping with a family-friendly environment, the Park prohibits clothing that would tend to be offensive and/or too revealing. This includes the following rules, which may also be supplemented on a case-by-case basis as determined by the Park, in its good faith discretion and without further notice: • Appropriate swimwear is required for water rides or water-play structures. Swim wear should be lined and may not be transparent at any time. Revealing swim wear and thong or t-back swim wear bottoms will not be permitted. No undergarments may be visible at any time. Cotton t-shirts, footwear, denim swim wear and swim wear with hard metal objects cannot be worn on the body contact slides. Fins and snorkels are not allowed. • For safety reasons and to prevent property damage of rides and attractions, the Park prohibits cut-off jeans, denim shorts, clothing/swimwear with metal rivets or spikes, metal fasteners or buckles, or belts. Shoes of any kind are not allowed on any water slide or tube rides. • The Park prohibits any jewelry that may pose a hazard to the rider, other guests, the rides itself, or other property. Prohibited items may include: bulky, protruding or dangling jewelry (e.g., large hoop earrings which could snag on something, long necklaces which can pose a strangulation hazard, bulky rings, and any piercings that could snag or catch on equipment).

Alcoholic beverages purchased within the park must be consumed within the park, and cannot be removed from the park under any circumstances. Guests purchasing alcoholic beverages will be required to wear an orange wrist band which designates that the guest is of age to purchase alcoholic beverages and has been verified as not being over-served. Alcoholic beverages are not permitted in line for any ride.
Do you allow animals in the park?
No Animals. Animals of any kind (e.g., dogs, cats, rabbits, gerbils, lizards, snakes, pigs, hamsters, turtles, birds, tarantulas, rats, mice, monkeys, ferrets, mini-horses, etc.) are not allowed in the park, except for legally-defined service dogs or as may otherwise be required by law to assist those with disabilities (“disabilities” being defined by the Americans with Disabilities Act or other applicable laws). If you claim to have a legally qualifying “service dog” you will be required to verify its legitimacy. A “service animal” is defined by law, and not by a person’s personal desires. For example, a “companion” animal, or an animal that brings “emotional comfort,” or a dog, which serves as “personal security,” does not qualify as a legal “service animal.” Even if a “service animal” is verified, and allowed to enter the park, please be aware that you are still responsible for controlling it at all times. A service animal is also prohibited from all rides because rides are built for people, and because animals cannot be safely contained or restrained on amusement rides, they would thereby pose a serious safety hazard. Animals are also prohibited from going into or on any water ride or attractions, because of hygiene concerns, in addition to safety concerns. Please understand that we may require removal of your service animal from park property if it poses a threat to persons or property, including without limitation, if it is unruly, threatening, aggressive (barking, snarling, biting at patrons, etc.) and/or if you are unable to always control your animal. You must make sure that your service animal has gone to the bathroom before coming to the park. Once at the Park, if your animal needs to “go,” please do your best to steer the animal to an area off to the side on a grassy area, away from other patrons, if possible and pick up after them. We encourage you to ask a staff member to where your animal might be directed. It is prohibited to leave animals in a car while patrons enjoy the Park; in such event, animal control (or other government authority) may be called, and your car forcibly entered, to attend to the health or safety needs of an animal. You will have to pay all such costs involved in the rescue of any pet left in a car and may face animal cruelty charges from local authorities.
Do you allow drones in the park?
Use of drones (in, over, or around the waterpark), whether for photographic purposes or otherwise, is strictly prohibited (unless the user has been granted written, contractual permission for that specific instance from an officer of the waterpark or its parent entity). Violations may subject the user to immediate ejection, confiscation of the drone, and referral of the matter to authorities. Drones are a serious safety hazard to ride operations, park operations (including electrical facilities), and to the park’s guests and personnel. Use of drones in, over or around the park, also constitutes an illegal trespass, an invasion of the park’s privacy, and tortious interference to our operations.
What is the park's policy for unaccompanied minors?
Children under 12 must be accompanied by an adult or guardian at least 16 years or older. We recommend all minors be accompanied by an adult for safety reasons.

Are lifejackets provided?
Life jackets are provided for all guests who are inexperienced or non-swimmers. Only Coast Guard approved life jackets are allowed as flotation devices. Life jackets are provided free of charge for guests who require one. Life jackets are recommended for children under 48” or an inexperienced swimmer. Life jackets should be selected to fit the swimmer properly. If a life jacket is too big, it won’t keep your head above the water. And if it’s too small, it might not have the buoyancy required to keep your body afloat. Remember, a life jacket sized for an adult will not work for a child. Here’s how to get the best fit. o Check the manufacturers label for size and weight guidelines o Fasten the jacket correctly, then hold your arms straight over your head. o Ask a friend to pull up on the jacket, holding the tops of the arm openings o If there is excess room above the openings, or the jacket rides up over your chin, it’s too big. o It’s a good idea to try the life jacket in shallow water before taking it out for activities.
Can I bring in my own folding chairs, umbrellas, water toys?
These outside items are not allowed into the park. Typhoon Texas offers lounge chairs, on a first come first serve basis or you may choose to rent a private cabana.
