  • We took our 5 and 6 year grandkids. We had the most amazing fun. The park lends itself to getting in on the fun with the kids. Also the close proximity of everything made it feisable for us the adults and the children to get around. Park is very well planned in design and safety for kids. It is clean, and beautifully landscaped. I also like the fact we can bring in ice chests with food and drinks. The employees also treat you with the utmost respect. We had a great time, well worth the money, next year I'm getting season passes! Thank you Schlitterbahn!
  • I really like this park. It's very clean and a lot of fun. The food is over priced, but you are allowed to bring in your own food and drinks. There are even some BBQ pits in certain places around the park. Most of the water slides are accessible from the lazy river, and the children's play area is really fun. If you need to get out of the sun for a bit, there is an indoor section with its own lazy river and a couple of water slides.
  • Great water park for a summer weekend getaway. We have been visiting Schlitterbahn SPI for a number of years now. The park itself is becoming a little dated in new ride selection, but the best part for me is the continuous river. You can float on the river for hours at a time, simply awesome!
  • Frikin..SUCKS...not hardly any rides..maybe for toddlers..not for teenagers..lines are long..maybe like 3 slides that adults and teens can ride..not worth spending 250.00.on tickets for nothing..better to go to GALVESTON SCHLITTERBAHN..OR New Braunfels location...these 2 are the Galveston teens have a does young kids parents tooo..I personally won't be back at Schlitterbahn in South Padre...only thing is good about it is the water....
  • The price was very high for such little there was to offer. Two of the rides were shut down, and those that were running kept getting stopped due to people getting stuck. Also, this isn't a place that's real friendly for overweight people as the rides are not enjoyable for those overweight. Also, there really was no weight limit signs posted about rides except for the children's body slides. A plus is that you can bring in your own cooler (without glass). The bathrooms at the main entrance were also not in good condition. Overall it was a good getaway from the beach, but I wasn't greatly impressed with the experience.
