Family fun is best experienced year-round, and while Texas has natural lakes and rivers for floating on by, nothing beats an indoor waterpark with exciting rides that you can visit any time. The country’s largest water park franchise is taking to the Gulf Coast to give Houston-area families the best stay-cation possible at Great Wolf Lodge Gulf Coast Texas.
Great Wolf Resorts is one of America’s largest indoor water park franchises. The company prides itself on family-friendly attractions, even beyond water park fun; many of the resorts feature areas for mini golf and bowling. The building of a Great Wolf Park to the Gulf Coast area means the addition of new jobs, a heightened tourism industry, and an overall economic boost to the region.
While Great Wolf has resorts across the United States, up to this point, Grapevine has been its only other Texas location. But this fall, Great Wolf Resorts is set to break ground on a Webster location: Great Wolf Lodge Gulf Coast Texas, just 25 miles out of Houston.
With the grand opening planned for mid-to-late 2024, the water park will feature 532 rooms and 95,000 square feet solely dedicated to the indoor water park, totaling 27 acres of jam-packed joy. Featuring an additional adventure park, family dining options, and daily itineraries full of preplanned activities, this water park is the perfect place to schedule your weekend getaway—any time of the year.
In addition to giving Houstonians a new vacation spot, the project has been endowed with over $200 million, which will provide an economic uplift to the Gulf Coast region, particularly as the opening of the new resort will bring over 500 job openings to the region.
While you wait for this addition to our local travel and leisure scene, you can still enjoy the great outdoors and nature’s own bodies of water by taking a drive to any of the lakes or rivers that surround Houston.
