MASSIV Update: Slide in Place

A water coaster needs four things to make it work: height, slide, plumbing, and electricity. We were excited to be on hand for the placement of the first two segments.

MASSIV Update: Towers Rise

Walking around the site, you realize just how challenging it is to squeeze something so MASSIVE into such a tight spot, and how creative the ride designers had to be to make it happen.

MASSIV Update: Footers

Before it’s time to put in steel towers for MASSIV, World’s Tallest Water Coaster, one must dig deep. Not within ourselves, because we did that a long time ago when we first started thinking about taking on this massive project. Dig deep into the ground! Dig deep into the ground! These footers for MASSIV’s to are five feet deep and about 15 feet by 15 feet. Of course, this area had vegetation, so  there are some palm trees in the way. Our landscapers will be in to move them. Then the digging will continue. And continue. And continue! Here’s a...

It’s best for summer fun

Visited last winter, which happened to be a cold winter in TX, They did a good job of making the place bearable considering how cold it was outside... we had a family blast and made the best of it considering the weather. Need to revisit in the summer to get the full experience. --Jalayola, Trip Advisor for Galveston location

“Worth the off season price!”

I stayed in the luxury tree house during off season. It is nestled amongst the tremendous water park which is currently closed. The tree house itself was immaculate on the inside. The beds are amazing and the furniture has the tree house look. You actually check in at a location off site which went very smooth. ...Off season this place is QUIET!!! Great sleeping. There is a river running along your tree house. I would imagine in season the noise level would be another story but then again your staying inside a water park. I can't imagine this not being heaven for any kid in the middle of summer. --Bookiepoo, TripAdvisor
