Schlitterbahn Waterpark#6 in Best Things To Do in South Padre Island
Keeping your kids entertained at the beach can be difficult. So when the weather starts to swelter and the little ones are bored of the shore, head to Schlitterbahn Waterpark. Here you'll find water rides, a surfing machine, a hot tub bar and a giant sandcastle play area that are sure to amuse. When it comes to keeping everyone's tummy from rumbling, the park is home to a variety of concession stands as well as the Shrimp Haus Restaurant. You're also welcome to bring your own picnic.
Past travelers said the park is great way to spend the day, especially if you have kids who are sick and tired of the beach. Although, some warn that prices are high and the food is less than mediocre.
Sitting at the southern end of the island, Schlitterbahn Waterpark is generally open daily between mid-May and the end of August. You can secure a one-day pass for around $50 a person; discounts are available for children. For more information on admission and hours, visit the park's website.
