Announcements about the new amusement park and concert venue have been slow coming, but now Galveston County residents can stop holding their breath!
Adventure Pointe’s official ground-breaking ceremony was held on November 14, 2015. The preliminary ground clearing had begun in October, but now the Adventure Pointe Team has shown their commitment toward bringing this highly anticipated amusement park to Texas City in Galveston County.

Adventure Pointe’s visionary and owner, Dr. Harvey Slusky (a local cardiologist), was on hand to use the ceremonial shovel to mark the event. Family entertainment has been a prominent business for prior Slusky generations. Mr. Slusky’s father, Louis, had two separate Playland parks in Houston and Galveston in the late 1940s; his uncle had one in Nebraska; a cousin had a park in Oklahoma City and others in Denver own one which has been in existence for over a century.
Adventure Pointe Amusement Park & Concert Venue is located at 5500-5600 Gulf Freeway (HWY 45) Texas City. The Park will be nextdoor, just south from, the Texas City Tanger Outlet. The 35 acre site will host a thrilling and innovative theme park, a hospitality center with restaurants, retail and hotel accommodations, and an entertainment section complete with a state of the art concert venue.
