Great place for kids and adults alike. The river was fantastic. My only concern was that it was really cold inside but that was likely because it was very cold outside. The water is not heated.

I enjoy going to Schlitterbahn Beach Waterpark. The location near the South Padre Island Beach makes it an ideal place. You do not have to worry about the dangers of the ocean and can enjoy your time here. There are lifeguards. The rides are safe...More

First, we love the Schlitterbahn outdoor Waterparks and have been visiting their Original Waterpark in New Braunfels for almost 40 years - there are no better waterparks that we know of. Having been to Kalahari and Splash Lagoon, the Schlitterbahn Indoor Waterpark at SPI fails...More

It was a windy day, so we decided to come to the indoor waterpark. We had to pay full price (compared to another reviewer saying they got it cheaper for just indoor). We couldn’t find the changing rooms. It ended up being only a few,...More

Went to this dump of a hotel and waterpark last year. The lifeguard decided to send our 7 year old son down a lazy river with no adult. My wife went after him to grab him but ended up severely getting injured and cutting her...More

The waterpark is a bit small for my taste but it's a fun place to visit in SPI. Plus, you don't have to do a lot of walking like other waterparks.More

It's a medium sized park but packs a lot of fun. Love that the lazy river that has access to and turns into a rapid river (for all ages) is another way to get around the park. We enjoyed it and I am sure you...More

Great place to take a family, especially during the warm Texas Summer. The park is located right off the beach so it makes for cooler days.
