By: Waves Resort Corpus Christi featuring Schlitterbahn Waterpark

Feeling stressed, hot and tired?  Well, you can relax and refresh at the new and improved Schlitterbahn® Waterpark located at the reimagined property now called Waves Resort Corpus Christi. Schlitterbahn® Waterpark Corpus Christi offers a perfect complement to swimming and splashing in the Gulf. But this is not your everyday water park. Sure, you and your family will find slides, a Comal River smooth ride river and Kid’s Zone splash area, but you’ll also want to check out the Sky Blaster, a 46-foot uphill water coaster, and Bahn Blaster and Bay Blasters, twin water racing slides. There’s also Boogie Bahn for surfing and the Torrent River wave ride. And there’s one other feature you don’t often encounter at other water parks: two swim-up bars – one at Reef’s Cabana Bay and the other under the ginormous 42-foot outdoor theater!

Everyone loves the cutting-edge Waves Video Gaming Lounge and E-Sports Training Facility, a 4,000 sq. ft. environment that takes gaming to another level. Waves Resort Corpus Christi is way out in front of the curve with this facility, which includes a VR Arcade, high-end PC gaming rigs, a tournament competition area, X-boxes and a mini-theater. 

Waves Resort Corpus Christi also deserves recognition for developing an inventive restaurant and craft bar service in Eats Epicurea. Think artfully-crafted dished with distinctive Texas flair: like gourmet tacos and short-ribs, and bottomless bowl pasta night. Winner of The Bend Brunch on the bay 2019, the Sunday Jazz Brunch is not to be missed with an extensive Bloody Mary and Mimosa bar. The island’s most extensive wine list is available every night. Music fills the warm breezy air on weekends when bands perform in the bar. 

A more casual experience awaits at the Lookout Pub and Pourium with the Island’s first “Beer Wall.” The Beer Wall at Waves lets you pour your own beer from 10 different taps. 

Waves has developed a nature-based walking trail around the natural ponds on the property. Waves Resort is clearly up on another trend in being dog-friendly. The on-site “Bark Park” features an obstacle course and plenty of room to stretch four legs.

 The brand new Unlocking Atlantis Escape Room combines gaming strategy, riddles, puzzles, making this innovative play space perfect for families, couples and corporate events to put the clues together in one hour and make your way to Atlantis. 

Waves Resort Corpus Christi has even taken a modern approach to golf by offering a driving range and practice facility, including full short-game practice, the ability to practice driving from a bunker, and putting, chipping, and pitching area.

Taken together, it’s pretty crazy to consider how many different activities a guest can participate in at Waves. And don’t forget the outdoor Movies on the big screen and First Thursday’s Concert series, where folks can watch a new release film or listen to live music while floating on an inner tube with a cocktail or nonalcoholic beverage in hand. And more is coming! Zipline, Laser-tag and more!
