"Carnival’s Endzone" -- a fun gaming area for kids featuring a pool table, video game consoles, and a fun nautical décor -- opened yesterday as part of the new Houston Texans Teen Club in partnership with the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Houston (BGCGH).

Continuing Carnival’s role as the Official Cruise Line of the Houston Texans, the grand opening of the new teen club was celebrated with a ribbon cutting with executives from the Houston Texans, Carnival and BGCGH, along with appearances by Houston Texans players Jadeveon Clowney, Andre Hal and Greg Mancz who played video games and pool with the teens.  Houston Texans cheerleaders were also on hand to lead yoga and dance classes and prepare healthy snacks.

The first facility of its kind in Houston for youth ages 14-17, the Houston Texans Teen Club is designed to provide young adults with programming and facilities necessary to help them transition to adulthood.    In addition to “Carnival’s Endzone,” the modern and inviting space includes a college and career center, a café, wellness center, a counseling office and more.

Carnival Cruise Line is Texas' number one cruise operator with three year-round ships operating four- to seven-day cruises that carry approximately 650,000 guests annually.
