The Florida-based owner of  Wet 'n' Wild Hawaii has purchased and rebranded a water-park in Houston, Texas, as Wet 'n' Wild SplashTown.

According to a news release, this is the second water park CNL Lifestyle Properties, a real estate investment trust, has rebranded since acquiring the North American rights to the Wet 'n' Wild brand in late November. The company rebranded Soak City as Wet 'n' Wild Palm Springs in December.

CNL plans millions of dollars in upgrades in Palm Springs such as the introduction of rides familiar to Wet 'n' Wild Hawaii attendees including FlowRider, a simulated surfing activity, Big Kahuna, a raft ride, and Wet 'n' Wild Junior, an eight-slide children's area. Other upgrades also are planned.

Wet 'n' Wild Hawaii's other water-park sibling is in Arizona, but CNL owns a total of 16 water parks across the mainland.
