Construction Diaries: Corpus Christi – Swim up bar and Chute!
In Corpus Christi our crews have had some real fun lately putting the finishing touches on what has to be one of our most gorgeous swim up bars. Not everyone realizes, but the first swim up bars were at Schlitterbahn, where we know mom and dad don’t mind having an adult beverage while keeping an eye on the little ones.

The STC (which is what we insiders call it) is pretty cool. In fact this is becoming one of the most fun things to photograph every chance we get.
The Torrent is another area that’s looking pretty good. Here’s a close up of the tile:
Imagine placing all those teeny, tiny tiles. Now imagine doing it for the most exciting Schlitterbahn park ever.
Then the real backbone of the park is taking shape. The rivers. They are coming along – rivers are being poured all the time :
And cabanas are getting finishing touches.
And if that wasn’t enough, on Monday, we have a big announcement.
But we can’t tell you about that today.
In the meantime, cruise over and get on our mailing list for Corpus Christi. We promise that the moment we have an opening date, we are going to send out a massive email…
