We spent 2.5 days at this resort, and had a great time! The rides were fun, and we enjoyed floating around the river. My 7 year old daughter flipped backwards out of her tube at the bottom of one of the rides, and the lifeguard was very quick to get her out of the water and make sure she was... More

We visited the water park during our vacation to South Padre Island. We had a great time. Lots of shaded places to rest and have a picnic. The park gets pretty crowded. We spent a considerable amount of time at the Torrent inside the indoor water park. Lots of fun!

My MIL came with us and was afraid of the heat. We rented a palapa that had an outlet and brought a fan with us to keep her cool. The staff even helped with an extension cord.

While this location is much smaller than the New Braunsfel location, fun still awaits you! Conveniently located next to the resort, you don't have to walk far to enjoy this location. And it's conveniently located next to the beach. The floating from one ride to the next is convenient, as no standing is required. All lines are sit in your... More

It is coll the way you can float in your tube from ride to ride. The uphill waterslides were a lot of fun, but 'Boogie-Bahn was the best! The indoor portion of the park has a great 'non lazy river' it moves very quickly. Overall the park is better for a younger family - not many thrill rides.

jdkilburn, Thanks for visiting and pointing out the variety of attractions including our "torrent" wave river that we have in addition to our lazy river....of course, floating from ride to ride without getting out of your tube definitely makes for a much more enjoyable and fun day as well. We appreciate your visiting and look forward to seeing you again... More

Not even close to Schlitterbahn New Braunfels, however it was pretty good for South Padre. Only need one day (about 6 hours or so) to see everything and do a couple of rides twice.

This is the second summer we have visited Schlitterbahn Beach Resort. The entire family loved it. We liked being able to enjoy the beach in the morning and the waterpark rides in the afternoon. Saturday was pretty busy but Sunday & Monday were better.
