Wet & Wild Splashtown, Houston's largest waterpark, will be rebranded Six Flags Hurricane Harbor Splashtown once it opens for the 2019 season.
Six Flags Entertainment Corporation, the world's largest regional theme park company and largest operator of waterparks in North America, has announced that three of its newest parks will be rebranded as Six Flags parks. Darien Lake, Wet & Wild Splashtown and Wet & Wild Phoenix were acquired from EPR Properties last year. The parks are currently undergoing major renovations and preparing to welcome guests for a thrilling 2019 season.
This season, Splashtown in Spring will debut Wahoo Wave-an innovative, new six-story water slide. This adrenaline-packed attraction sends four riders into near vertical motion as they experience extended hang times and zero g-forces. Riders plunge 30 feet straight down before sweeping across the top of a massive waterfall, then descending into a refreshing pool below. The expansive waterpark will also debut a new Caribbean theme and major improvements throughout. Hurricane Harbor Splashtown features more than 48 lush acres and a wide selection of thrilling water slides and attractions including two children's areas.
"The Six Flags brand is recognized throughout the world as an industry leader in creating innovative, groundbreaking experiences for guests of all ages," said Senior Vice President of US Park Operations Tom Iven about the rebrand occurring at 3 of their newest parks. "We are proud to have these incredible parks bear the Six Flags name and we are making major investments in all three properties with record-breaking attractions and extensive upgrades including new theming, paint treatments and branded signage, along with updates to restaurant and retail locations. Additionally, Members and Season Pass Holders will have free, unlimited visits to these parks and Six Flags theme parks throughout North America."
Six Flags Entertainment Corporation is the world's largest regional theme park company with $1.4 billion in revenue and 26 parks across the United States, Mexico and Canada.
