Schlitterbahn Outdoor Waterpark in South Padre Opens This Weekend

April 9, 2019 . South Padre Island, Texas — The long wait is over! Schlitterbahn South Padre outdoor waterpark is kicking off the start of its summer season this Saturday, April 13th at 10:00 am. The outdoor waterpark will be open every weekend (plus Good Friday) beginning this weekend; daily operations begin May 15th.

Schlitterbahn also offers a 40% discount to the waterpark to guests who stay at the park’s onsite Beach Resort, the newest and largest on the island.
