While it was cold outside we did enjoy the warm indoor park. It was a lot of fun but I'd say it's for younger kids. We had Lot of fun with my 3year old. There is a lazy river and 2big slides so we got to have some adult fun to. But I wouldn't pay for this if I didn't... More

This was our second visit to Schlitterbahn South Padre waterpark. Both times we have done the indoor park during the Christmas/New Years time period.

During a particulary cool day in December 2015, this was a great place for the kids to swim, play, and have a great time. The "crazy" river was their favorite thing!

Sheri K, We appreciate your visit and taking the time to post your experience. With the heated, indoor section, our location on the shores of the Gulf provides a great "beach" day no matter what Mother Nature had otherwise planned. The "crazy" river is a perfect name for our Torrent River! Thanks, I may use that more often myself :o)... More

I loved the river (I wouldn't exactly call it lazy) that takes you around the whole place. Our son (18m) loved the little kiddo area with the little slides and fountains. Great place for kids. And they serve drinks for the grown ups! :)

Great fun when the weather didn't cooperate. Park was heated and had great burgers! Indoor park wasn't very big for the price but many discounts were given during the off season. Terrant River was a hit with my kids.

Thanks for visiting and one of the great things about having an indoor, heated waterpark is the ability to enjoy yourselves on the Island even on those rare occasions Mother Nature doesn't cooperate.

PamelaTexas, Thanks for taking the time to visit and I will also reach out to you individually for clarification on your comments as our indoor, heated waterpark opens at 10:00 on operating days, not at noon as you mention in your review. Pricing for the indoor waterpark is not significantly more than a couple of movie tickets, yet provides a... More

Took my 7 year old Granddaughter to the indoor waterpark on December 26th. 2015. We had a great time. Many options as to how one will spend their time-in-the-water. I was very, very impressed with the staff and especially with the life guards. They never took their eyes off of the people in and around the water. My Granddaughter had... More

We had a wonderful time. My compliments to the staff and mgmt. For the restrooms in spite of the heavy traffic flow of guests. My only complaint is parents not supervising their small children. We were in the adult section yet the small children were curtailed by mgmt. or their parents. This really doesn't make for a enjoyable Shlitterbahn experience.

We went off season and the indoor park does not have a lot to offer. Two big slides that are just mirror images of each other, the torrent river, and a master blaster ball shooting arena. Not a great bargain for the day. Luckily we had a coupon which offset the cost a bit. My kids were able to entertain... More
