Pirate's Bay WaterparkPirate's Bay is a water park located in Baytown that has waterslides, a wave pool, a lazy river, a kids' play area and more.
LocationPirate's Bay is located at 5300 East Road, Baytown, Texas 77520. It is about 30 minutes from downtown Houston. There are detailed directions on their website from the East and from the South part of town. WARNING: I had a difficult time finding the water park. My navigation took me to an Exxon plant because they also have an East Road. I used my Iphone navigation and the directions button on the website.

Tips:*As I mentioned above, we had a hard time finding the water park when using our navigation. I highly recommend that you look up the directions before you get into the car. There are two "East Roads" different from the street that the water park is located. My navigation sent me to the wrong location. *The water park gets busy on the weekends. We arrived at 11am on a Saturday, and the park had already reached capacity. If you go on a weekend, I would recommend arriving before the park is scheduled to open. *The park has lots of covered seating and chairs. You are allowed to bring in an ice chest with food and drinks. *The staff is very friendly, and there are lots of lifeguards on duty.
