COVID-19 & Summer 2022

How is Typhoon Texas responding to COVID-19?

Typhoon Texas continues to monitor public health developments as they evolve. Although we're about Good. Clean. Fun, rest assured we take cleanliness seriously. The safety of our Guests and Team Members are always our top priority.

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.

How will you promote social distancing?

Typhoon Texas adheres to the social distancing recommended 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 at the park. Several loungers, cabanas and seating areas also have been removed to help parties keep a safe distance from one another. Masks, although not required, are encouraged in areas where social distancing may be difficult to maintain.

What about raft rides?

We have developed specific plans for each of our attractions, including our raft rides, to minimize contact between parties and follow social distancing guidelines.

What other cleanliness initiatives have you established?

We have significantly increased our efforts to sanitize and disinfect all high touch points across our Parks. 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?

Our filtration system reduces impurities to one micron, well above traditional pool filters that only 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.

Under what conditions will you close?

Typhoon Texas will never open if it is not safe for your family and our Team Members. Please continue to stay updated on our social media platforms and our website, typhoontexas.com.

Will I get a refund for my Season Pass if the waterpark closes for an extended period of time?

Our season pass policy is unchanged. At this time, there has not been a decision to refund season passes. Rest assured, if the waterpark closes for an extended period of time - your season pass will be credited. Stay up to date with us by following any of our social media channels.

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 if maintaining 6 feet or more is not feasible 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. CDC also states that chlorinated water inactivates the corona virus.

Are you still hiring for Summer 2022?

Absolutely. Typhoon Texas is hiring seasonal workers for a variety of positions. Visit the Job Opportunities tab for more information.

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.

Am I permitted to bring my own food or beverage 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 need to bring my own food...

Guest who suffers from serious food allergies or life-threatening allergies may bring food into the park ONLY if their allergies 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 be contained in a small zip lock bag. Coolers of any kind are not permitted for entry. Please see the bag check Team Member at Typhoon Texas Houston. There is a picnic area available outside the park for any food brought and stored inside the guest’s vehicle.

Is smoking permitted in the park?

Smoking or Vaping is not permitted anywhere on Typhoon Texas property with the exception of designated smoking areas, located outside the gates in the parking lot.

What is the policy of alcoholic beverages in the park?

Guests must be at least 21 years of age to purchase, possess or consume alcoholic beverages at Typhoon Texas Waterpark. A valid state-issued identification or driver's license is required for each person purchasing, possessing or consuming alcoholic beverages. Alcoholic beverages must be fully consumed or discarded on the premise where 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.

When processing tickets that are purchased online, the credit card that was used to purchase and the I.D. must be provided at the window. We do this to protect your credit card account and to decrease fraudulent charges.

Can I wear water shoes?

Water shoes are allowed to be worn around the park as the pavement can get hot. We encourage you to protect your feet. They may NOT be worn on any of the following rides: any Duelin' Daltons slides, any Snake Pit slides, Lone Star Racers, or The Gully Washer. Water shoes can cause unwanted friction on the slide that could result in injury to the rider. Please do as the lifeguards ask.
