This was our first time at this waterpark. The outside part is nice but 4 or 5 rides were closed. Never were given a reason why. The indoor water park was small. All in all it's an OK waterpark. Nothing great.

It was really hot in August. The shaded areas helped out . I prefer the indoor portion of the resort more than the outdoor lazy river pool. Highly recommend this place . It wasn't expensive as the others I have visited.More

Right off the bat, I was not impressed with Schlitterbahn South Padre. We visit the park in New Braunfels every year, so I’m quite familiar with that one. We bought tickets online, but still had to wait in the same long line as everyone who...More
