“If you haven’t been to Wet ‘n’ Wild SplashTown in the last year, then you are in for a treat,” Rosie Shepard, director of sales and marketing, says. “We have listened to our loyal customers and added more amenities to enhance the overall Wet ‘n’ Wild SplashTown experience and as the Bayou City’s original water park we hope the additions will help encourage everyone to be #WNWSplashtownBound.”
