On Wednesday night, council members will discuss a new lease with a new company. Our Carlos Garcia shows us what’s next for the water park.

PFLUGERVILLE, Texas — On Dec. 15, the Pflugerville City Council approved the Pflugerville Community Development Corporation to release the owners of the property, currently known as Hawaiian Falls, from its lease and negotiate a new lease with a new consortium.

When the ink is dried, the water park will be rechristened “Typhoon Texas,” reflecting the name of its new owners.

City officials said Typhoon Texas was selected because of a shared vision of economic development leadership.

The park will be renovated as part of the new agreement and will be the new owners’ second location.

On Wednesday Pflugerville leaders, along with members of the PCDC will hunker down and hash out the terms of the new lease.

The meeting will begin with an Executive Session and then action is anticipated in the Open Session portion of the meeting.
