Our Story

Shrimp Haus, the Idea…

One night while shrimping off the coast of South Padre Island, Schlitterbahn co-owner Jeff Henry and his crew came up with the idea of selling fresh Gulf shrimp at affordable prices to Waterpark guests, area residents and vacationers alike. Playing off of Schlitterbahn’s German roots, the group came up with the name Shrimp Haus.

Schlitterbahn, the Story…
In 1966, along the banks of spring-fed river on the edge of the Texas Hill Country, Bob and Billye Henry and their three children began creating what would eventually become the world’s first water resort and the nation’s most popular summertime waterpark. The Henry’s relied on their own vision of combining water fun and resort accommodations into a family destination. Setting Schlitterbahn apart from anything else is its unique combination of state-of-the-art water attractions with a family-friendly atmosphere. Schlitterbahn introduced the world’s first surfing ride, the world’s first uphill water coaster, the world’s first tidal wave river, plus inner tubing on a scale never seen before. Schlitterbahn has been voted time and time again for having the world-best waterparks including the award-wining Schlitterbahn Beach Waterpark.


Schlitterbahn’s Shrimp Haus is easy to get to. From the mainland, cross the causeway on TX-100, turn right onto Padre Boulevard/State Park Road 100 for a half mile. The Shrimp Haus is on the left (park in the Schlitterbahn Waterpark parking lot). Enter across a rustic boardwalk spanning a beautiful water garden, then up the stairway or a short elevator ride, to the Shrimp Haus’ front patio. Beachcombers can also join us via our beach walkway.
