Six Flags Is Coming Back To Houston and Taking Over SplashTown

As a kid growing up in Houston in the 90’s, during the summer, it was a magical time. I remember being like 11-12, and my parents dropping me and my cousins off for a day full of adolescent debauchery. And not to forget the most important item on your person, outside of cash, the season pass!

After a 15-year absence and massive parking lot, Six Flags is back with Six Flags Hurricane Harbor SplashTown; that’s a fitting name. The new water park is scheduled to open this summer, and its location as at the old SplashTown waterpark in North Houston.

Coming this summer, popular water park Wet ‘n’ Wild SplashTown will be rebranded as Six Flags Hurricane Harbor SplashTown. Fifteen years after Six Flags’ famed AstroWorld/WaterWorld complex permanently closed its gates, the Texas-based, fun-park corporation will bring some unique touches to the existing water park.

Along with new, Caribbean theming and improvements throughout the park, the biggest addition will be Wahoo Wave, an innovative, six-story water slide. This attraction will send four riders into near-vertical motions to experience extended hang times and zero g-forces. Riders plunge 30 feet straight down before sweeping up at high speeds as they arc across the top of a massive water wall, before descending into a refreshing pool below.

“We are thrilled to welcome Six Flags Hurricane Harbor SplashTown into the Six Flags family of parks,” says SplashTown president Jeffrey Siebert. “Six Flags is making a big investment in the park with the new Wahoo Wave and major updates for a bigger, better, wetter, island-like experience.
Hurricane Harbor SplashTown already has the most water rides and slides in the region, and now all members and season pass holders will have free, unlimited visits to Six Flags Fiesta Texas, Six Flags Over Texas and all Six Flags theme parks across the country. It’s an incredible value that only Six Flags can offer.”
