Tips and Tricks
What is the best time to come to Schlitterbahn Riverpark Corpus Christi?
For the best experience, we suggest visiting on a weekday and arriving early. If you visit on a weekend, we suggest choosing Sunday. Saturday is the most popular day to visit Schlitterbahn. Weekends in May, late August and September are less popular than weekends in June, July and early August.
What about my glasses?
Glasses will come off on some rides, so secure them with a neck strap. Neck straps are available at our gift shops. Neck straps may not be permitted on all rides.
Do you have changing facilities?
Changing facilities are located in the main restroom/locker area. Please be sure to bring diapers for infants. Regular diapers are not permitted in any pool or water attraction. Swim diapers are available in the gift shop.
How do I carry money around?
Schlitterbahn also offers "Splash Cash®" that can be purchased and used as money all around the park. Splash Cash® may be purchased at ticket booths, gift shops and locker rental locations.
What should I do with my stuff?
It is best to leave valueables at home. Please don't bring them into the park or leave them exposed in your car. Lock money and keys in a locker instead of keeping them in pockets where they may fall out in the rides. Schlitterbahn is not responsible for items that are lost or stolen in the park or in the parking lots. (Lockers are available for a fee plus deposit. The deposit is refunded when the key is returned.) We recommend putting vehicle keys in a locker along with your valuables or securing them so they don't fall out of your pocket.

Anyone can find great seating at our many picnic areas throughout the park by arriving early and claiming your table for the day for free. Please be kind and courteous to your fellow guests.

Just In Case...
Do you have a lost and found?
Any one of our Guest Services locations can assist you with lost and found items. Or you may call the park at 361.589.4220 and ask for Lost & Found.
What do we do if our party gets separated?
Make sure the kids who are old enough to be on their own know when and where to check in periodically for sunscreen and drink breaks. Schlitterbahn does not page for lost persons. Children should be instructed in advance that if they do become separated, they should notify a Schlitterbahn employee. All separated parties will be taken to the nearest customer service location. TIP: write your phone number on your child's admission wristband so we can easily contact you if your party becomes separated.
What if there is bad weather on the day of my visit?
Schlitterbahn is open rain or shine. When lightning, thunder or other severe weather is in the area, attractions may be temporarily closed but the park remains open. Once the severe weather clears, guests are permitted back inside the water. Please review the weather forecast prior to entering the park. No rain checks or refunds.
