Does Splashway offer bad weather passes in the case of inclement weather?
As you know, Texas weather during the summer can be pretty unpredictable. We do our best to keep the water park open. We want the sunshine just as much as you do. Unfortunately, there are days in which inclement weather can cause us to close the water park. We monitor each weather situation very close and make a decision to continue to wait it out and continue operation or close for the day. If we make a decision to close for the day with a significant amount of the day remaining, we will issue rain passes for you to come back to our Houston area family aquatic center another day. Our goal is to be fair.

Do you provide or rent towels for the waterpark?
We do not, but we do sell them in our gift shops. The average price is $12-$19.
