Typhoon Texas Seeks To Fill Jobs After Finalizing Lease Terms With Pflugerville

Several full-time management positions need to be filled prior to the May opening of the water park, according to officials.

PFLUGERVILLE, TX — Days after finalizing a deal with city officials to operate their water park, officials at Typhoon Texas are hanging out a “help wanted” sign in the search for managers.

Earlier this week, city officials announced they had finalized financial terms with water park operators of Typhoon Texas. The city had been negotiating terms since last month with Typhoon Waterpark of Pflugerville LLC to take over the park after its previous operator, Hawaiian Falls, defaulted on payments it owed the city.

The new agreement with the Typhoon Texas operators calls for a two-year ground and operating lease agreement for the Pflugerville water park, city officials said. The lease and operating agreement includeoptions to renew in 10-year increments until 2038, city officials added.

As a result, the water park is now scheduled for a May opening. Ahead of that, park officials are seeking qualified candidates to fill full-time management positions.

Full-time positions being sought include director of operations, director of maintenance, controller, office manager, and three full-time sales managers responsible for booking corporate, church and school outings, according to officials. All full-time positions offer salary levels based on experience with full benefits. Interested applicants can submit resumes to jobspf@typhoontexas.com.

Typhoon Texas toward the summer will start the process of filling seasonal jobs in water safety, administration, guest relations, food and beverage, programming, maintenance and park services.

Season passes for the Typhoon Texas 2017 summer season are available at www.TyphoonTexas.com. For updates, follow the waterpark at www.Facebook.com/TyphoonTexas and on Instagram and Twitter @TyphoonTexas.

In related news, Typhoon Texas officials named Ty Weitzel as General Manager, officials announced. Weitzel most recently served as director of operations at Typhoon Texas in west Houston.
