The Remains of Splashtown San Antonio One Year After Closing
In January of last year, we learned that Splashtown was closing down to make way for a new car dealership. Really? We were just there last summer and it was alive and well. Splashtown in San Antonio will forever be my favorite in SA. By far it was the most economical and the crowds were never overwhelming. Fast Foward one year, and it's incredible how quickly nature has started to take over the park. Take a look at some photos of the abandoned Splashtown in San Antonio. They are kind of eerie. Thanks to the Youtube Channel of Unknown Ventures and more recently, Project Rare, we look at the park's current status. SEE THE PHOTO GALLERY BELOW.
WAVE POOL An overhead view of what was once a popping wave pool that was sponsored by Big Red.
DROP SLIDES: These slides didn't look like much but they were super fun and a great option if you were looking at doing something quickly.
DROP SLIDES: Here is what was the view of the former drop slides.
WAVE POOL FRONT: Here is the lifeguard view of the wave pool. BTW this graffiti shows some talented artists in SA.
ENTRY TO WAVE POOL: Hard to believe that one year ago, this was full of beach chairs and people.
THE "LAZY RIVER": Who spent a little time just relaxing in the lazy river? Bonus points, if you can gracefully get in or out of a tube.
LANDING POOL: This was the landing pool for my favorite slide! The one that you went down in the dark.
HERE IS WHAT THE ABANDONED PARK LOOKED LIKE IN JANUARY, 2022!
