I purchased a season pass and ...

I purchased a season pass and have been here 3 or 4 times since doing so. Although it is small, I love how everything connects. At other waterparks, you have to get out and walk to each attraction. If you have just gone down a slide, you have to get out of the shallow "exit pool" and walk back to the lazy river or wave pool, etc. At hurricane alley, for the most part, you can just keep swimming to your next attraction. I really like this concept, except when it c...view moreomes to the wave pool. In some ways, I like how it connects. However, If you just want to relax and float in the gulf stream, once you get to the wave pool you usually have to get off of your tube and steer yourself to the other side in order to keep floating...otherwise the waves will just take you to the front of the pool. I was also a little disappointed to find that there is nowhere in the park where the water is more than 3ft deep...not even in the wave pool.

Locker rentals are made easy and are very cheap. You get an all day rental for $7-9 depending on the size you need. There are no keys, you just have a wristband that you scan to open your locker. I liked this a lot!

The swim up bar is a nice place to grab a beer on a hot day. Sure, they are pricey, but not too much more than some of the bars around the area. I will say do not get a cocktail though. They are wine based and rather weak. The bartenders on staff are very nice and fun, though.

The food is good but expect to pay park prices...this shouldn't be a shocker, though. All theme parks are like this. I suggest purchasing a souvenir bottle if you have a season pass...you will save a lot of money.

Although I have a great time when I go to the park, I'm not alone in saying the prices are outrageous. You pay $100 for a season pass...which is more than ANY theme park I have been to. Last year when I got my season pass to Fiesta Texas it was $65 and it at least came with some perks like bringing a guest, a coupon book for the shops and snack stands, and even admission into other parks. The only thing that my $100 bought me was my admission. They charge $5 for tube rentals to take into the gulf stream and $7-9 for locker rentals. You would think that a season pass would AT LEAST give you free tube and locker rentals. I think that if they lowered their prices even by $15 and added some benefits, a lot more people would be willing to purchase season passes. I also think that children under the age of 12 should have a discounted season rate.

All in all I really do enjoy Hurricane Alley. I have fun when I go there and I will continue going while I have my season pass. However, I'm not sold on buying one again next year. I just don't think spending $100 is worth it for the little you get. Maybe if they changed some things I would be willing to do it again. It's a great place and an EXCELLENT addition to Corpus Christi....but come on, guys. With these prices they can't expect very many people to be showing up.
