Schlitterbahn Opens Waterpark Resort in Texas
SOUTH PADRE ISLAND, Texas—Schlitterbahn has announced the new beachfront hotel and indoor, year-round resort waterpark at Schlitterbahn Beach Resort, South Padre Island, Texas. READER COMMENTS
Located on the beaches of the Gulf of Mexico, this new 221-room beachfront resort destination includes lodging, family suites, access to Gulf beaches, dining location options, and unlimited use of both the resort's indoor and outdoor waterparks.
The new indoor waterpark features two large 70-foot-tall tube slides, two tidal wave rivers, a kids' area with several slides, a giant heated pool with swim-up refreshments, a beachfront pool, several wild-wave beaches, and the grand carousel. All of the new attractions are part of the resort's Stay and Play package for overnight guests or is also included with purchase of an outdoor waterpark ticket.
As part of Schlitterbahn's ongoing commitment to the environment, many wooden structures in the park, and much of the furnishings in the hotel including the nightstands in the guest rooms, are made from wood reclaimed after the devastating forest fires near Bastrop. Much of these salvaged trees are loblolly pines from the "Lost Pines" region.
Resort guests also receive Wi-Fi and free onsite parking.
