Using a 40-foot-wide working scale model, Schlitterbahn Waterparks designer and owner Jeff Henry demonstrated the state-of-the-art river system that will encircle and connect 15-acres of attractions. �The idea is to maximize guests� entertainment time in the water,� Henry explained. �We�ve created an innovative man-made river that has many of the features found in natural rivers, including eddies and rapids. Three interconnecting sections carry guests around the park and the experience is never the same twice,� he said.

Henry explained that the technology is the next evolution of the award-winning Transportainment� river system introduced at Schlitterbahn Beach Waterpark on South Padre Island. Schlitterbahn Galveston Island Waterpark will also have a covered section that will allow part of the park to remain open year-round. In addition, the park will feature more than 20 attractions including body slides, tube slides and speed slides, plus a wave pool and children�s activity pool. Fans of the original Schlitterbahn Waterpark Resort in New Braunfels will find some of their favorite rides such as a bodyboarding ride, Tidal Wave River� and Master Blaster� uphill water coaster.

The indoor portion of the park will open this winter, including tube and speed slides, hot tub, children�s activity pool and a Tidal Wave River�. The rest of the park will be open by the 2006 summer season...
