Six Flags Hurricane Harbor Splashtown is planning to get Houstonians back in the water.
Houston’s largest waterpark will open under Gov. Greg Abbott’s guidelines set for waterparks and operate at reduced levels during a preview mode scheduled for June 29-July 2, according to a press release.

“We are excited to once again open our gates and welcome guests, valued members and loyal season pass holders back to the park,” said Six Flags Hurricane Harbor Splashtown Park President Jeffrey Siebert.
“We have been working diligently with state and local health officials to develop extensive sanitization, protocols, expanded social distancing measures, and new touchless technologies that will create a safe park experience for everyone.”
Some of the updated technologies the park has in place include the following:
• State-of-the-art thermal imaging for temperature checks.
• Advanced security screening technology for touchless bag checks.
• Mobile food ordering.
“This ’new normal’ will be different in some ways, but we believe these additional measures are appropriate in the current environment,” said Six Flags President and CEO Mike Spanos.
In addition to implementing new technologies, the park has also developed a safety plan that includes the following:
- Health screenings for guests and team members.
- Strictly enforcing social distancing.
- Extensive sanitizing and disinfecting protocols.
- Sanitized food preparation and service
- A park reservation system to manage attendance
Guests can start making reservations on June 11 and will be contacted electronically the day before their scheduled visit.
Six Flags season passes and memberships are currently on sale. Members can enjoy priority park entry and discounts of up to 50 percent.
