Summer means fun in the sun, but it also means finding fun ways to cool off.
Visiting Typhoon Texas Waterpark's wonderland of pools, waterslides, and other water features is one of our real estate agents' favorite ways to spend a summer afternoon.
Locations and Admission
Typhoon Texas Waterpark currently has two largely identical parks in operation: one in Houston and one in Austin. The Austin location is the original and is also the closest to our Pflugerville homes for sale.
Adult guests can purchase day tickets for $44.99 ($39.99 if purchased online), while tickets for seniors, members of the military, and children under 48 inches tall are available at a slightly discounted $34.99. Guests can also rent shaded cabanas with upgraded furniture and curtains for an additional fee.
If you know you'll be visiting a few times during the 2022 season, you can purchase a Season Pass for $74.99 instead. These passes get you unlimited access to both parks as well as discounts on food, drink, guest tickets, and more. At less than the cost of two adult day tickets, this pass offers clear value for anyone interested in repeat visits.
Kids will love scrambling up the Gully Washer, a four-story playground for children between 2 and 10 years old. Equipped with a splash pad for the toddlers and topped with a massive water bucket, this space can entertain kids of all ages for hours. Nearby Howdy Hollow has even more play equipment, including basketball hoops and a crawl net.
Infants and toddlers will enjoy playing at the Buckaroo Bayou, a space filled with splash fountains, interactive water features, and pint-sized slides perfect for easing young kids into the fun before they're old enough to move on to more intense attractions.
Adults and older children will find no shortage of fun here either. From the trio of exciting waterslides in The Snake Pit to the five high-intensity slides that make up The Duelin' Daltons, you'll have plenty to do during your outing. Beware – these rip-roaring thrill rides are not for the faint of heart! Only guests who are over 4 feet tall can ride them.
If tranquil relaxation is more your style, you can try the Lazy T River. Guests of all ages can enjoy floating on an inner tube down miles of crystal-clear waterways that loop around the park. There are several entrances and exits positioned around different attractions, so it's easy to sit back and let the gently flowing water carry you from one exciting area to the next.
All of the events feature special theming, live entertainment, exciting contests, and other additions that make them worth planning your visits around. Note that most of them take place in the evening and may require special tickets, so be sure to check the specifics of any you want to attend.

You've made it to the final walk-through process, which means your long journey to securing your new property is almost complete. The final walk-through might seem like a simple formality, but it's one of the most important steps in the process. This is your final chance to ensure the seller held up their end of the bargain regarding repairs, maintenance, or contingencies.
Our real estate agents receive lots of questions about what to expect during the process. If you're in the process of purchasing one of these Round Rock homes for sale, below are some tips to guide you through the final walk-through process to ensure you don't miss anything.
Inspect All Repairs
As a homebuyer, your priority during the final walk-through is to ensure the seller completed any agreed-upon repairs or maintenance and that the work has been completed to your liking. Whether it's a minor fix such as doorknob replacement or a significant structural issue, remember to inspect every item closely. You can also ask the seller to leave behind any receipts or warranties if issues arise in the future.
Look For New Issues
A lot can happen over 4 to 6 weeks, so it's also wise to keep an eye out for any new issues that may have popped up since the last time you visited the home. If you notice any significant problems that may have occurred since your last visit, this is your final opportunity to bring them to the seller's attention. Below are some common things to test during the walk-through process:
Check For Items Left As Part Of The Sale
If the seller agreed to leave behind any items such as appliances, lawnmowers, or pool tables, make sure they're still around after the seller has moved out. Most sellers won't attempt to skirt their end of the bargain, but it's still a good idea to check that everything is still in place.
What To Do If You Find Issues
While it doesn't happen often, sometimes buyers do find issues during the final walk-through process, so you should be prepared in the event there is a problem. If a seller did not complete required repairs or a new issue has occurred, you typically have three options:
Make Sure Your Real Estate Agent Is Present
Your real estate agent has conducted dozens of walk-throughs, so he or she knows exactly what to look for. Having a second trusted set of eyes is highly advisable during the process. Your agent will have a record of all contingencies agreed upon during the sale and will be able to help ensure you don't miss anything.
Most of the time, the final walk-through process tends to go very smoothly, but it's still important to it seriously and check everything. If you're looking for guidance on the buying process, contact us today.
