Location and Directions to SplashTown:

SplashTown Wet & Wild Water Park is located at 21300 Interstate 45 (Northbound) in Spring, Texas 77373 - less than 15 minutes from The Woodlands, and 30 minutes from downtown Houston.


From The Woodlands, take I-45 southbound to Exit 68 (Louetta Road), cross over the interstate and come up the northbound service road. The water park will be on the right, just past Rudy's BBQ.


From Houston, take I-45 northbound, take Exit 70A (FM 2920-Tomball) in Spring. SplashTown is accessible from the north service road.


Some good news:
SplashTown has over 30 landscaped acres of theme pools and slides, including a 500,000 gallon wave pool, a lazy river, and a wild tree house. There are also special, shallow pools designed for pre-schoolers with animal shaped rafts and smaller slides (children should not be left unattended).


Some not-so-good news:
In addition to hefty entry fees, SplashTown charges for parking and high prices for food and drink. You are not allowed to bring your own into the park, it must be left in your vehicle. Be sure to bring plenty of sunblock and wear water shoes; despite the park being a non-smoking facility, some people toss lit cigarettes onto the walkways and the stairways leading up to the slides.

Splash Town Wet & Wild occupies the land that was home to Hanna-Barbera Land

SplashTown property was originally Hanna-Barbera Land

Hanna Barbera Land Theme Park Houston Spring The Woodlands

Before it was a water park, the park was known as Hanna-Barbera Land, a small amusement park for children built by Taft Broadcasting, which became Kings Entertainment Company when the park opened. The theme park was open for only two seasons - in 1984 and 1985 - before succumbing to a hard economy and minimal spending on concessions and souvenirs.


Hanna - Barbera Land was sold to private investors, who then built "SplashTown USA" in its place. The water park was sold again to Bryant Morris and then to Six Flags, who purchased the park in 1999. Six Flags eventually decided to re-brand the park as Six Flags SplashTown. Six Flags, which owned the Astroworld theme park in Houston until it's closure in October, 2005 held ownership of the water park until just prior to 2007 season. In 2007 the park was sold to PARC Management who continues to operate the park until 2014 when it became Splash Town Wet & Wild Water Park.


Astroworld was a 75 acre amusement park located on the south side of Houston across Loop 610 from what is now known as Reliant Park and marketed as "AstroWorld: A Member of the Six Flags Family" so as to not be confused with "Six Flags Over Texas" located in Arlington, Texas.


Kings Entertainment Company also owned the Kings Island, Kings Dominion, Carowinds, Canada's Wonderland and Australia's Wonderland theme parks. PARC Management owns and operates both Zuma Fun Centers in Houston as well as various theme parks and amusement parks across the United States and Canada including the NASCAR SpeedParks in Missouri, Tennessee, North Carolina, South Carolina and Ontario, Canada.
