The Waves Resort Corpus Christi is to be demolished for renovation

CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas – The Waves Resort and Schlitterbahn Waterpark are being demolished.

District 4 city councilor Greg Smith told KRIS 6 News that IBC Bank will demolish the park and resort in order to redevelop the area on the island.

The facility was closed in March 2020 due to the pandemic and is scheduled to reopen this summer.

At the time of the shutdown last year, dozens of workers were unemployed.

The Waves Resort was just renovated for $ 10 million in June 2019.
