There’s something for everyone:
Schlitterbahn Corpus Christi is called a RIVERpark for good reason – we have the most extensive, action-filled river system in the world! We have five types of rivers here: A wave river, a momentum river, a swim channel, an action river, and river tube chutes. Unlike any other park in the world, our rivers are all interconnected and there are 16 beaches throughout to allow access — with NO lines. It’s part of our patented Transportainment® system. The system includes over a mile of river, but if you combine tubing of all the rivers in different ways, you could tube for seven miles!
The largest rivers in the system are:
The Torrent: Over 900 feet of wave generated fun!
The Kristal River: 750 feet of swiftly moving water in this classic momentum river!
Blitz Falls: Filled with rapids and falls – this river is like tubing on a real river!
Other river sections include: The Deluge, Comal Pass, the Cliff Hanger, and Rio Aventura!
This is a classic flume ride getting a new life by taking up residence in a waterpark (where it belongs, in our opinion). Each boat has five rows and can hold between 10-15 riders. Boats carry guests to a height of 50 feet, then drop them at 32 miles per hour. The ride, the first of its kind for Schlitterbahn, is 610 feet long and has three separate pumps to deliver a big splashy ride. Set to open for summer 2017.
Based on the very first inland surfing ride invented at Schlitterbahn, the Boogie Bahn is the first waterpark attraction that guests can get better on with practice. The surfing path is 20 feet wide with 50,000 gallons of water per minute shooting out to form a thin sheet of water to surf on.
Up Hill Blasters
Two blaster towers deliver all kinds of fun! Sky Blaster is 46 feet high and 385 feet long and offers a great view of the Boogie Bahn. The twin Bahn and Bay Blasters allow guests to race each other to the splash zone. These 33-foot tall twin blasters are right in between the launch and landing zone of Padre’s Plunge.
Kiddie Splash Zones
The littlest guests at Schlitterbahn can divide their time between Lil’ Skippers and Buccaneer Bay. Kids can enjoy a splashing good time on our ship, the CC Corpus Christi, slide down the butterfly wings, or get soaked in the mushroom fountains.
Schlitterbahn’s commitment to the environment is long standing. From the way the original park was designed to flow among trees, to the commitment to water conservation (98% of the water is recycled through filtration), to maintaining recycling containers throughout the parks, Schlitterbahn believes in sustainability. The development team, which builds our new parks and attractions at Schlitterbahn, constantly looks for ways to reduce, reuse, and recycle. Schlitterbahn Corpus Christi has many parts from ships salvaged in Texas shipyards.
Schlitterbahn’s cabanas create a unique and relaxing experience. Guests enjoy a common gathering area for their party and experience private seating, lounge chairs, catering, and tableside service. In Corpus Christi there are reserved premium cabanas with wait staff and regular cabanas for guest use.
