If you haven’t visited North Padre Island in Corpus Christi this summer, you should make your plans now! The new Waves Resort featuring Schlitterbahn® Waterpark is open for business, especially the business of having fun. Cross over the causeway from Corpus Christi to North Padre Island, and you can’t miss the iconic white and blue Waves Resort Tower. The Waves Resort featuring Schlitterbahn® Waterpark has been completely reimagined to include entertainment and meeting places, video gaming lounge and VR arcade, escape room, four food options and six bars, DJ parties, live music/concerts, and 91 spacious rooms. The refreshing waterpark rides and attractions range from leisurely to heart pounding, providing sensational entertainment for water lovers and sun seekers of all ages.
Ride the Perfect Wave
The surf is always up at Boogie Bahn. This 20-feet wide surfing experience shoots 50,000 gallons of water per minute to form a thin, but righteous wave to ride. Unlike any other attraction, guests can improve their experience with practice. For a fun challenge, see how long you can hang in there, or just sit back and watch other guests. While you may see some wipeouts, you’re also sure to see some guests pull a cutback or even an epic 360.
Enjoy the 2-Mile River System
Built to stretch across the Waves Resort island property, the two-mile river system features four interconnected rivers, so park-goers can take advantage of four unique tubing styles. If you’re into maximizing your relaxation, you can kick up your feet in a tube on Comal Pass. Maybe you feel the need for speed. Then Kristal River is your choice. Feeling adventurous? Torrent River sends an exhilarating tidal wave through a canyon-like waterway every 20-seconds!
Get your Thrills
Waves Resort featuring Schlitterbahn® Waterpark is just what the thrill-seeker ordered with rides like the Bahn and Bay Blasters, which sends guests on a fast-moving chute, while the Sky Blaster reaches 46 feet high (which means a 46 foot drop) and runs for nearly 400 feet.

Relax in a Cabana
Looking for a little luxury? There’s nothing better than enjoying this sunny waterpark from your own private cabana. Let your friends and family explore the rides, while you lounge at “home base” enjoying a tropical drink tableside service or float over to the swim-up bars. And if that isn’t enough luxury for you, host your own private beach party on one of our many beaches.
Splash with the Little Ones
Buccaneer Bay and Lil’ Skipper’s Cove are shallow-water play area with lots of splashing opportunities for the young or young at heart. Families can board the C.C. Christi pirate ship to explore water-shooting cannons and toddler-friendly slides. The mushroom-spray fountain and butterfly slide are always hits with kids, and the shallow 12” – 18” water makes it easy for parents to keep an eye on their kids’ safety.
