Schlitterbahn Vacation Village
The Schlitterbahn Vacation Village is a $750 million one-of-a-kind water experience. The Waterpark portion officially opened on Saturday, July 18, 2009. This is the first phase of the 370-acre track that will consist of a year-round, trend-setting, retail entertainment destination comprised of multiple shopping, dining, lodging and entertainment venues connected by a Transportainment® River System.
In the Vacation Village, manmade rivers carry guests between lodging units and world-class Water Resort along with a covered Riverwalk including shops and restaurants. The Schlitterbahn Vacation Village site is near Village West in Kansas City, Kansas. The location is bound by State Avenue on the south, Parallel Parkway on the north, Interstate 435 on the west and 94th Street on the east.
The Kansas project is the first expansion outside of Texas for the popular Schlitterbahn group of waterparks. Widely recognized as the leader of waterpark innovation and as the first family of American waterparks, Schlitterbahn currently operates three Texas waterparks -- Schlitterbahn Beach Waterpark, South Padre Island, Schlitterbahn Galveston Island Waterpark, Galveston Island and the flagship waterpark Schlitterbahn Waterpark resort, New Braunfels.
