(Texas City, Texas – July 11, 2022) – Touted as a “game-changer” when it introduced the unique floating cabanas last summer, Lagoonfest Texas can now boast that it has the largest ‘fleet’ of floating cabanas in North America.
With the arrival of 18 new floating cabanas, Lagoonfest now has a total of 22 on its 12-acre lagoon.
The collection includes picnic cabanas with a center table with drink holders, shaded seating and a king lounger for tanning. Party cabanas are three floating cabanas connected to a center inflatable island. In all, they are more than 370 feet long and can accommodate more than 180 people at once.
“When we first introduced them last year, they were the first floating cabanas to be featured on a Crystal Lagoons® amenity in Texas,” said Uri Man, Chief Executive Officer of The Lagoon Development Company. “They have proven to be so popular with our guests, and are so unique and versatile, we just had to bring in a lot more of them for people to enjoy. I don’t think there is another collection this large in all of North America.”
Man said the party cabanas would be perfect for large groups or birthday parties — another popular request at Lagoonfest Texas.
Prices for the day-long floating cabana rentals start at $450.
At 12 acres, the Lago Mar lagoon is the state’s largest, and it offers the most shoreline of any lagoon in the nation. It holds 24 million gallons of water and the lagoon’s liner system is large enough to cover the entire Houston Galleria mall or 14 NFL football fields. The lagoon surface is equivalent to an approximate 1,350 home swimming pools.
Located at 12600 Crystal View Boulevard in Texas City, Lagoonfest Texas is open 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Mondays, Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays as well as 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Sundays. Individual ticket prices start at $22. Season passes also are available starting at $69.
Guests can rent kayaks, sailboats, stand-up paddleboards and bumper boats, as well as test their skill on the floating obstacle course and race down the 42-foot Titan slide. Food and a full bar are also available.
