South Padre Island Adventure Park - Review
The South Padre Island Adventure Park is 40 acres of land spanning from the Gulf of Mexico to the Laguna Madre Bay and it provides an unmatchable adventure filled experience on the beach. One can go horseback riding, rent ATVs, spend time with animals at their petting barn or even organise parties at the park.
Horseback riding along the beach and the water’s edge is one of the most memorable experiences one can have on South Padre Island. One would often witness a variety of shoreline birds and marine life while horseback riding along the water’s edge. One can choose from their many horseback riding packages like the morning special, afternoon special, sunset special and moon light special based on what time of the day they’d like to go horseback riding.
One can also race around on their user friendly ATVs on their private 6 acre ATV sand dune track. Safety gear and general instructions are provided at the venue. A typical session of ATV riding would last for 30 minutes but one could purchase a package to ride for longer if one wishes to.
The Petting Barn houses lots of birds, small animals that are safe to handle or be around, for children and adults(No snakes). Next to the petting barn are the corrals with a host of barnyard animals that entertain children and big people too. Next to the petting barn is the pony ride corral where children can take pony rides and play with them.
Also, the South Padre Island Adventure Park is a great venue to organise events like birthday parties, weddings or merely a barbeque night on the beach.
All in all, the South Padre Island Adventure Park is great place for children, families, adults and couples.
The activities’ schedule is changed throughout the year depending on the time of the year and the sunset timing. Please visit the website for a detailed schedule.

South Padre Island Adventure Park, South Padre Island Reviews
Great place for an all day activity for zip lining and horseback riding. Staff was very friendly with guiding us through the beach area while on horseback, especially for new riders. Special thumbs up to Mr. Jorge. Website needs little update on the payment screen for the Bucket List option. Would help if the specific timings of the day and attractions were listed so we could plan our day better. Besides that, very good place for non water activities on the island.
Let me start off by saying that I have no horseback riding experience. I was scared but the guides looked experienced. Ross was my horse and I had a little trouble with him listening to my commands. I was barely getting comfortable when another horse kicked a lady! Then two horses slightly bucked. Ross was getting impatient and not listening to well. I had enough. I got a guides attention to give up and Ross took off. MY guide got him and helped me off safely. I was so relieved to walk back safely to the park. I was worried about my horse being in pain. I thought it was mean that the horses could not eat grass. Ross was eating grass. I felt like maybe Ross acted funny because he was in pain. I'm glad I experienced this but would pay more money in order to ride in a smaller group. Also the guide said to keep space so the horses don't buck but Ross had a hard time keeping space. I recommend experienced riders because I feel uncomfortable with some safety issues. I would not ride again because I feel like spacing is an issue between the horses. Ross was all up in another horses behind. Another horse was taking a dump and I literally thought Ross was gonna get it in his face. LOL
Simply awesome and the best vacation...it's a small Island with best beaches. I am calling it common man's Hawaii as it's very affordable. One thing which was unique for me was there were a lot of beaches and few allow to drive on the beach. The best kept Secret by Texans.
They are great people. Had no problems with finding the place. All of the horses were great. The employees are nice. Would recommend it 100%.
First impression is NOT Good when you pull up. Run down looking and filthy bathrooms were not what I was expecting first ride in the morning. What earned the 4 stars was the staff- the guys were awesome and super friendly. Sure they are working for tips but seemed to genuinely enjoy the people and their job. Horses were awesome but Star is a stubborn old gal! If I owned this place I would certainly reinvest some money in fixing it up! Looks almost closed for business....
