Closed for repairs since last September’s Hurricane Ike, the Schlitterbahn Galveston Island Waterpark reopened on March 14. Storm damage was not severe, but park operators used the opportunity to update the Texas park. Renovations include new themed structures replacing those destroyed in the storm, Wi-Fi access, an RFID wristband system, and a new candy store.
Meanwhile, Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon in Orlando, Fla., recently reopened its doors. Closed six months for basic refurbishment, the resort still features all of its regular attractions.
