Texas Hurricane Harbor Rides and Attractions
Texas Hurricane Harbor is one place in Texas that is guaranteed to cool down even the most hot-blooded critter. Especially when the sun is beating down unmercifully and the humidity in the air is practically unbearable, then you know Hurricane Harbor can help. The best part of the Park, of course, is the rides. Nothing could be more refreshing after a long hot day than relaxing on an inner tube in the cool, clear water.
There are water rides for every family member from preschoolers to teens & adults. Children can play safely in Hooks Lagoon that features a tree house, Hook's ship and Hook's slide. Action packed thrill rides include the Der Stuka, Dive Bomber, Hydra Maniac and Shotgun Falls...and of course, there are many more. Thrills are Hurricane Harbor's claim to fame! Family rides provide the chance for parents and children to have fun together include the Sun and Surf Lagoons, the Sea Wolf toboggan and the Lazy River.
For those who prefer kicking back in their inner tube, floating casually down a slowly winding river, the Lazy River ride is just what they need. It is the perfect ride for those who just want to slow down and take it easy. Tubes float down this river at about three miles per hour. Slow enough to enjoy, but fast enough to stay cool.
Surf Lagoon Wave Pool
The one million gallon Surf LagoonWave Pool, which sits right in the center of the park, features rolling waves that provide cool water fun for visitors of all ages. The Wave Pool is meant for all ages, with an extended ultra-shallow area for wading and splashing around in the water with the little ones. Older kids venture out a bit farther, while teens and adults often choose the deep end...where the swells are the biggest when the waves start rolling in.
Just for Kids
Hook's Lagoon is perfect for the younger ones who want to splash and play. This attraction has everything from rope ladders to climb and slides to zoom down, to water canons for waging war. Moreover, just to make sure everyone eventually gets soaked, there is a 1,000-gallon water bucket, located at the top of the Treehouse, just waiting to tip over unexpectedly. Smaller versions of the park's thrill rides, like the kiddie slides on Hook's Ship, keep guests safe while introducing the youngest guests to exciting water fun.
The many water slides are the park's main attractions, and they have made Texas Hurricane Harbor so famous.
The Sea Wolf takes the rider, seated in a toboggan, down 830 feet of slide while banking and turning uncontrollably. Then, you might choose to go on to a more intense ride like Shotgun Falls, where the rider is blasted straight out of a barrel-shaped slide by 2000 gallons of water!
Are you afraid of the dark? Then DON'T head towards The Black Hole! If you do, you'll find yourself shooting blindly through a long black tentacle-like tube into the unknown water ahead. Do you like surprises? The Geronimo starts the rider off slow and easy then suddenly drops them straight down nearly six stories, free-fall style. You won't know when to expect it...and it will take your breath away when the steep slope catches you by surprise!
Other Attractions and Events
The water rides at Hurricane Harbor may be the biggest attraction at this park but they are not the only experience available. Dive-in Movies are popular Friday-evening event at Hurricane Harbor Texas...and gives families a chance to extend their day at the park. (Movies start at appx 8:15 pm, after the rides have shut down for the day. You and your family can relax in the water on your inner tubes while viewing favorite family-friendly films. The movies are included with the price of your ticket or season pass.

Hurricane Harbor Arlington - Web-only discounts
Six Flags Hurricane Harbor is certainly worth the regular admission price, but why pay more if a lower price is easy to get? In this section, you can discover discounts and coupons that are currently available at Six Flags Hurricane Harbor, Arlington. These discounts include the regular online print at home tickets, the season passes, as well as the Coke can special and other discounts and coupons.
Regular Price Tickets
How much do Hurricane Harbor Texas tickets cost? If you don't plan ahead to get a discount, here are the prices that you'll pay at the park's ticket booths this season:
Adults and Children 48" and taller $38.99 (plus tax)
Junior - Under 48" $33.99
Age 2 and Under Free
Online Print at Home Discounts
One of the easiest ways to get discount tickets is to print them at home before you go. You can get adult/teen tickets for the child's price of $33.99 per person on the Hurricane Harbor website, plus you'll skip the line to buy tickets at the park. (Since the park's price for kids is already discounted, there are no further savings online for kids. It's the same $33.99 online. However, getting them online enables them to skip the ticket booth and head straight to the gate.) If you do not have a printer, you can still get the tickets at this price. All you have to do is keep the confirmation number you get when buying the tickets and bring it to the "Will Call" window so that they can give you your tickets there.
Additional online bargains: Hurricane Harbor often has some sort of deal going that will beat their regular online price. At the time of this update, that deal is the 3 day-advance ticket. If you plan ahead & purchase your tickets several days before you will need them, then you can get an even better discount. Currently, the price for these is $31.99, although the park is free to raise its prices at any time. To get this deal or to find out further information, here's a link to the Hurricane Harbor-Arlington ticketing page of the SixFlags.com website.
Season Passes and Memberships
There are a number of season passes available that will give you access to Six Flags Hurricane Harbor, Arlington. The cheaper option is the Season pass to Hurricane Harbor ONLY. This pass will cover admission to the water park only. If you are only interested in the water park and you know that you will visit the Hurricane Harbor at least three times in the operating season ending in September, then this is the pass for you. If you want to have the opportunity to visit either the Six Flags Over Texas amusement park OR the water park (as many times as you like, including Fright Fest and Holiday in the Park,) then you will want to get the Combo pass.
Memberships are monthly payment plans that allow you to pay for annual passes conveniently...and without strain on your wallet. Memberships include both Hurricane Harbor AND the Six Flags theme park. They blur the line between "season" passes and "year-long" passes in the sense that you will still pay for your membership during months when the parks aren't open. However, there's only 2 months of down time at SFOT...and spreading the payments between 12 months instead of 10 makes it easier still to fit passes into your budget. You'll need to remain a member for 12 months. After that, the park presumes that you're still interested in continuing your membership...and it will keep deducting your monthly dues until you ask them to stop. If you enjoy theme parks, it's a worry-free way to make sure that you'll always be able to drop in whenever you like.
