  Making Memories: Schlitterbahn has been part of hundreds of thousands of great memories for  guests – what are your favorite memories at the park?

· Waterpark Survival Tips: Here’s three tips you can share with your readers – can you come up with a few more?: 1. Swim shoes or flip flops – Schlitterbahn parks are among the largest in the nation, and that means that invariably there will be some hot spots without shade or outdoor carpet. Wear some sort of water worthy shoe. 2. Suncreen – Water rides remove the best in sunscreen. Apply, ride, repeat. 3. Pack a lunch – Schlitterbahn allows ice chests, but no glass or alcohol. Make sure to pack some favorites but leave room for park specialties like funnel cake and turkey legs!



Key News:

Green Facts  on our South Padre Waterpark Resort

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 felled 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.

Here’s where you’ll find the Bastrop Pines in the 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 pine.

Ropes:  Over three miles of 3-inch mooring ropes of dozens of former ships have been painstakingly wrapped around giant concrete structural poles in 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.

Chandeliers: The beautiful chandeliers hanging in the Sea 4ever event patio were salvaged from an ageing 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 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.

*I was given free tickets to Schlitterbahn to try out the park and review honestly about it.  No money was exchanged.  The opinions are all my own*
