New Hurricane Alley opens its gates

By | May 14, 2012

After much anticipation and a 24-hour weather delay, Hurricane Alley in Corpus Christi, Texas, opened its gates for Mothers’ Day. Several hundred people visited the park for the first time on May 13, and enjoyed the six-story water slides, racing slides, lazy river or the 12,000-square foot wave pool.

The new waterpark is adjacent to Whataburger field stadium. Guests can enjoy spectacular views from the slide towers of the ballpark playing field as well the coastline, shipping channel and downtown skyline.

The soft-opening was kept low key with the park open on weekends only from 10 am. to 6 p.m. Although all the attractions are fully operational, cosmetic touchups and additional landscaping will be added to the park over the next few weeks. A formal Grand Opening is scheduled for Memorial Day weekend and the park will then be open seven days a week through labor day.
