The Pflugerville City Council agreed late Thursday to release management of Hawaiian Falls water and adventure park and will negotiate terms for Katy-based Typhoon Texas Waterpark to manage the park.
The council approved the action following nearly two hours of discussion behind closed doors at Pflugerville City Hall. The Pflugerville Community Development Corporation met with the council to discuss options on the future of the water park.
Amy Madison, PCDC executive director, said Typhoon has committed $4.5 million in renovations and other expenses related to managing the park. The park is expected to reopen in May 2017.
“With this agreement, we have successfully kept hundreds of seasonal jobs in our community and protected an asset that brings significant economic development benefits to Pflugerville,” she said in a media release provided at the close of Thursday night’s meeting.
Mayor Victor Gonzales said the water park under management of Source Horizons LLC was not meeting the needs of the community. He cited the company’s inability to build a planned splash pad as one example.
“(Typhoon Texas) are going to bring new elements into the water park, some new and exciting rides that will be geared toward families and smaller kids,” he said.
Gonzales said he was impressed by business partners representing Typhoon Texas. “I think they are very conservative; they’re very deliberate,” he said. “They know what they’re doing in terms of development.”
