This water park is good, not bad for being on the island, a bit small in my opinion and the entire park was not opened. New B. outside north of San Antonio is bigger, more water rides and bigger pools etc.

Clean park, very polite and helpful staff. Water features were good, though lines for rides were long. (Rides kept getting stopped for some reason.) Our meals from fast food stands were very poor. The quality and speed of service left a lot to be desired....More

I've visited Schlitterbahn in Galveston several times and I've always been impressed. The park in South Padre Island was very disappointing. We visited on Good Friday and the park was not ready to be open. Most rides were closed or not functioning. The Tempest and...More

Are you allowed to bring your own pop-up tent for shade? Would it be better to just find a spot indoors with littles (2 and 4)? BTW, I have to say that I have appreciated that so much time goes into the managers of Schlitterbahn actually answering these questions. Super impressed.

What activities do you have for toddlers? We'll have a almost 2 and an almost 4 year old that, while they'll be taking swim lessons this year, aren't ready for "big kid slides" etc. Is it worth it if all they do is splash pads and swim? Also, do you have a military discount? We will be traveling over Memorial Day, and didn't know if you had any upcoming specials.
