Schlitterbahn’s Boogie Bahn is a Schlitterbahn staple, and is featured at every park…because everyone loves to boogie, right?

Though every park has a Boogie Bahn, every Boogie Bahn is different, and they all have their own unique qualities.

My personal favorite Boogie Bahn is in South Padre Island. There’s something about surfing waves while having the actual beach in the background that tops off the Boogie Bahn experience. Schlitterbahn provides the waves and South Padre Island provides the beach life… It’s a win, win!

1. South Padre Island’s Boogie Bahn is the widest of all the Boogie Bahns! So, you have plenty of space to show off!

2. Like all of our Boogie Bahns, the wave can be strong! So, tie up your shorts and wear a rash guard! Show off your moves…not your body parts! ;p

5. When the Boogie Bahn first opened in 2001, Schlitterbahn had a choreographed Boogie Bahn Show for called “The Celebration of Water.” Riders would perform trick after trick and wow the guests.
