Schlitterbahn “Upper Padre Island” which is really North Padre Island within the city limits of Corpus Christi is what you would call, “kinda open”. The park is still obviously under construction, but the kiddie pool, the swim up bar, and concessions are open. (Hey, they have their priorities lined up!!) Currently, the park is open from 10 am until 8 pm for $5.oo per person. Walk ins to check things out were for free— at least for today! Hey, if you don’t feel like beaching it, you can hit the kiddie pool or swim up bar with a lot less sand in your car!
