Typhoon Texas Coming To Katy, TX!

Katy Texas News

Typhoon Texas is coming to Katy in May 2016!

If you haven’t heard the exciting news, as your Katy real estate agent, let me fill you in! Typhoon Texas, a new waterpark, is coming to Katy. It has already broken ground and, and according to local businessmen, is the most exciting recreational venue to be built in the Katy area in the last 50 years.

This project has been in the works for three years, so it’s very exciting news for the Katy community that construction has begun. It is expected to open by May 2016, just in time for the summer months! A grand opening date is set for May 27.

Typhoon Texas is part of a 43-acre development in the works just east of Katy Mills Mall on Katy Fort Bend Road. With the large scale planned for this waterpark, it is expected to attract locals on a regular basis, but also visitors from surrounding cities and around the country.

One notable attraction at Typhoon Texas is called Slide Boarding, which combines the experience of water slides with gaming. A tunnel surrounds you on the waterslide, with digital targets, and you ride down on a board that has buttons. As you ride, you hit the buttons each time you pass a target and try to hit as many targets as possible. The controller keeps track, so you can keep trying to beat your highest score. It’s the future of waterslides, apparently!

In total, Typhoon Texas will have four separate slide towers with 18 total water slide paths. The park will also include six bodies of water, which includes a 25,000-square-foot wave pool and a lazy river. Small children can enjoy the rainforest play structure. The waterpark also plans to use advanced filtration technology and high turnover rates to provide clean water at all times.

Typhoon Texas will obviously bring many new jobs to the Katy area as well! According to the park’s website, job descriptions will start getting posted by November of this year, and park owners will begin the staffing process in January 2016. Seasonal and full-time jobs will be available.

Once the waterpark opens next May, hours of operation will be 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on weekdays and open until 7 p.m. on weekends. Admission and season pass prices have not been determined yet, but parking will be free! Party packages and rentals will be available as well.

Though summer is coming to an end in Katy right now, with school back in session and Labor Day weekend upon us, Typhoon Texas gives all us locals something exciting to look forward to next summer.

When ready to buy a Katy home, or when ready to sell your Katy home, contact me, your Katy real estate agent! I am here and ready to help at any time!

Katy Events

Wild West Beer Fest in Katy

Beer fans will unite at this weekend’s Beer Fest in Katy, TX! As your Katy real estate agent, I’d like to fill you in on the details of this fest, hosted by the Katy Rotary Club. Not only does it bring the community together for a day of beer sampling, food, music and socializing, but it’s all for a great cause. Proceeds go to Katy ISD programs and local charities.

The Wild West Beer Fest will take place this Saturday, May 2, at Katy Mills Mall from 3 to 9 p.m. At the main event, you can choose from more than 200 beers to sample from all over the world. While you sip, sample and socialize, you can also enjoy live music from country artists J.T. Hodges, Curtis Grimes and others.

You’ll receive one drink card with purchase of ticket, which is good for 12 two-ounce beer samples. If you’d like more, you can purchase extra drink cards for $9 ahead of time on the website or at the event.

There is also a launch party on Friday, May 1, from 7 to 10 p.m., where you can sample special beers ahead of the main event. This includes a new and unique beer that you cannot find anywhere else in town! Limited tickets will be sold for this event. They cost $30 and include a special pint glass, beer, food and music by Kaos.

If you purchase a VIP ticket to the main event, you get in one hour early, and you get access to the VIP area stocked with premium/specialty beers and complimentary food.

Tickets cost $30 for general admission or $25 for designated drivers. There are also many hotels in walking distance, and many of them are featuring a group discount rate on May 1 and 2. Tickets to both the launch party and main event cost $60. Some of the ticket options are already sold out, so don’t wait to buy!

This fest is 100 percent nonprofit and volunteer run, so if you’d like to volunteer, contact the Katy Rotary Club! It’s no wonder that BeerYeti.com named Wild West Beer Fest as the second best beer event in the country, only second to the largest beer fest in Denver.

Enjoy the Wild West Beer Fest this weekend in Katy! When you’re ready to buy a Katy area home, or ready to sell your Katy area home, contact me, your Katy real estate agent. I’d love to help you accomplish your local real estate goals!

KATY, Texas – The public is invited to the Grand Opening of NOAH’S Event Venue in Katy, a free one-stop event planning experience.

Katy is growing so rapidly and with as much as NOAHS offers, it is going to be a great asset for the Katy community and the surrounding areas.”

“Memorable experiences add wonderful variety to life.” The Grand Opening Event is free, but guests are asked to reserve a spot by going to facebook.com/mynoahs. NOAH’S is located at 21403 Merchant’s Way in Katy, in the Mason Creek Development.

Katy is a city located in Harris, Fort Bend and Waller Counties in the U.S. state of Texas, within the Houston–Sugar Land–Baytown metropolitan area. The population was 11,775 at the 2000 census.

Katy, suburb of Houston, Texas, is named for the Missouri-Kansas-Texas Railroad (commonly referred to as the "K-T Railroad", now a part of Union Pacific) that ran through Katy in the 19th century. Katy was once known as Cane Island. The name is derived from Cane Island Creek which runs just west of downtown. Cane Creek is a branch of Buffalo Bayou. The origins of the name Cane Island are believed to be from the fact that Katy was once a major sugar cane producer and rice producer. To commermorate the importance of rice to the Katy community, the Chamber of Commerce holds the Rice Harvest Festival every second weekend of October.

Katy was recently the location of one of the ten large red balloons in the DARPA Network Challenge on December 5, 2009. The balloon was stationed in Katy Park.

In 2009 the Gadberry Group named Katy as one of nine "9 from 2009" most notable high growth areas in the United States.
After a low income apartment complex was proposed for development in an adjacent unincorporated area, in 2010 the Katy City Council passed a resolution stating that the development would decrease property values.[5] The plans for the complex were canceled.
