We are blessed to live not far from South Padre Island here at the tip of Texas. Over the summer, as part of the Mom's IceChest Challenge, we enjoyed going to Schlitterbahn for the first time and the kids still talk about how much fun they had. As parents, we love how family-friendly the entire park is and how many different activities they offer for various ages. The children's playarea is especially fun for little tots who might not be able to enjoy waterslides. The indoor wave pool is incredibly fun and a great place to come float around and ride the waves indoors. They have several food kiosks throughout the park and even offer a full scale restaurant if you prefer a sit-down and be served meal.
Since our kids are 13, 11, and 9 they mostly wanted to ride the waterslides. We rode every waterslide at the park and loved it. The kids loved the ones with lots of curves and fast water and our oldest loved the big drops. Our 13 and 9 year old both did BoogieBahn which gave them the opportunity to be a "surfer" in an enclosed, outdoor area. David and I both enjoyed the indoor wave pool at the end of the day and enjoyed just grabbing floats with the kids and relaxing and riding the waves. It was such a fun and memorable day with the kids and we look forward to more opportunities to experience family-friendly fun at Schlitterbahn in the future.
