CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — Corpus Christi residents turned out in force February 15, 2013, to celebrate the groundbreaking of Schlitterbahn’s newest Waterpark and Resort. The new 65-acre project will embody the best of Schlitterbahn — rivers, rides, slides, surf, and lodging — in a community that has been anxiously anticipating the new park.
“We’ve been impressed by the incredible support and enthusiasm from citizens in Corpus Christi,” said Jeff Henry, owner of Schlitterbahn. “We’re glad to announce that the wait is over and we are breaking ground today!” While the groundbreaking is taking part today, ride fabrication is already underway. Schlitterbahn plans on opening Summer of 2014.
Schlitterbahn’s Waterpark and Resort in Corpus Christi will launch with Schlitterbahn’s signature attractions including a Torrent Tidal Wave River, a river system that allows guests to float along a wave-filled river; swim-up bars; beaches; and of course, a Boogie Bahn, the world’s best inland surfing ride; as well as on-site lodging. Details on specific rides, prices, and timing will be shared in the coming months.
