Make Memories at Schlitterbahn South Padre Island Waterpark #BahnLove


Schlitterbahn South Padre

It’s The Year of Anniversaries at Schlitterbahn Parks. The 15 year anniversary of the opening of the Schlitterbahn South Padre Island Waterpark, built in 2001.  This park is home to the Transportainment River system that is designed to maximize time in the water and eliminate lines. This river system connects eight attractions that feature rapids, chutes, and gentle currents.

Schlitterbahn South Padre Island Waterpark allows you to sit back and enjoy tube rides, without standing and waiting in lines. The perfect park to bring toddlers and tweens. Schlitterbahn is designed to have something for every age. We spent hours in the splash zones with our tiny tots.

Schlitterbahn South Padre Island Waterpark was built with Green living in mind: 

Ropes: Over three miles of 3-inch mooring ropes from dozens of former ships have been painstakingly wrapped around giant concrete structural poles on our Sea 4ever 10,000 square foot patio.

Green House: The retractable roof over our indoor waterpark was built from a large greenhouse – an old Schultz nursery.
Lobby Check in Counter: Built from salvaged walnut trees which were pulled from a road project in Kansas.

Parapet Walls: The hatch covers came off a famous US Troop carrier the John E. Pope and are used on parapet walls and also to make tables. Over 500 are on site. 
Bastrop Pines in  South Padre Beach Resort:
– Rooms: In most rooms the cabinets, coffee tables, nightstands, and headboards are made from the Bastrop Loblolly Pines.
– Dining areas: Large tables are made from the Loblolly Pines.
– Lobby: The large tree stump tables by the doors leading to the heated pool are from the fire, as is the siding along many of the interior walls.
– External: The siding on the outside walls of the resort are made from Loblolly Pines.

FYI: You’ll also find the pines all over Schlitterbahn New Braunfels – look for the pine paneling in the Riverbend cabins and the lovely furniture pieces here and there. We’ll try to point them out during your tour.

Chandeliers: The beautiful chandeliers hanging in the Sea 4ever event patio were salvaged from an aging Vegas hotel. Our team glued shells to them and hung in the ceiling.

Waterslides: Yes, even some of the water slides were recycled. The water slides in our indoor park came from a park in Cleveland Ohio, were salvaged, refurbished, and re-installed.
Handrails: An old Dutchman Downs Stadium was the source for all the handrails.

Loblolly Pines: In 2011, a major wildfire raged through Bastrop County, Texas in September. Three separate fires started during Labor Day weekend and by the time it was controlled, it destroyed 1,691 homes and burned over 34,000 acres of land including the vast majority of Bastrop State Park’s 5,900 acres of Loblolly Pines. The Lost Pines Forest, thought to have originated in or before the Pleistocene era, was also heavily impacted. For safety, the burned pines had to be removed. These scorched trees were destined for the grinder who would have turned them into mulch. Jeff Henry, with Schlitterbahn, offered to take the fallen trees, then had them milled, beginning the process of transforming the pines from scorched wood to the most dramatic feature throughout the Schlitterbahn Beach Resort at South Padre.
