It’s that time of year again! Schlitterbahn South Padre Island will open for the 2018 summer season on April 14th. After a long winter, the park is ready to open its doors for locals and tourists alike to enjoy the island early summer like weather.  Guests will be able to enjoy park staples such as our four uphill water coasters – The Tempest, Storm Chaser, Sea Blaster and Gale Force; the Boogie Bahn inland surf ride; two tube chutes – Pirate’s Plunge and Aqua Blanca; two, four-story slides; kiddie activity areas; swim-up bars; and our Rio Aventura transportainment river system – where tubers never have to leave the water when waiting to ride!

Along with celebrating the long awaited opening day, Schlitterbahn South Padre Island is going to keep the good times rolling with events at the park all summer long. Each event will feature special discounts and promotions for groups and don’t forget the newest, largest beachfront resort hotel on South Padre Island, Schlitterbahn Beach Resort, offers you the chance to wake up inside a waterpark while saving 40% or more on waterpark entry!  With multiple restaurants, gift shops and an indoor waterpark, it’s all right here.
