We create memories! The Wells family has served South Padre Island for 5 generations and we create memories that last a life time!

Our Adventure Park is located at the end of State Park Road 100 with forty acres of land spanning from the Gulf of Mexico to the Laguna Madre Bay that provides an unparalleled location for Adventure on South Padre Island.

Zip-a-thon: We don’t limit your number of zips. With our unique quick zip-line transition system you will be able to zip around the zip-line circuit as fast, or, slow as you want to during your session. You will have the maximum zip-lining fun experience that you can within an hour. Believe me, an hour of speed zipping here is an experience not obtainable anywhere else.

Zip-line Towers: The main tower has three 2,500 sq/ft levels for zipping and observation. Zippers start at the top level with four (4) - parallel zip-lines to zip 500 feet to the landing tower. The four parallel zip-lines allow high volume zipping for groups or families to zip together and to simultaneously share their zipping experience. Once the zip-liner gently lands, our Staff will un-clip them from the zip-line cables and directed them to the stairs for their return zip. Typically the return zip has a slight tail-wind and is much faster. The return braking system is the automated Zip-Stop Brake for your safety.

Requirements: Minimum age is 10 years old. Weight limitations are a minimum of 60 lbs and a maximum of 300 lbs. (We will weigh you). Anyone with medical or physical issues, pregnant or any other ailment can’t go on the zip-lines.

Our horseback rides are along the beach and water's edge and we often see a variety of shoreline and marine life and we get to ride in the remote portion of the Island that few people get to experience. No crowds here!

Our Petting Barn is filled with birds and animals we have rescued or have been donated to us for a forever home. Children can enjoy a safe and educational interaction with all of our birds and animals (us big kids too).

Have a special occasion or event in mind? Just give us a call and we will be glad to help plan your special Beach Wedding, group party or birthday. Remember, we create memories!

Dolores also owns The Massage & Healing Arts Center and her licensed and professional Massage Therapists are ready for your pampered needs after a fun day at the beach.



Come; make your memories with us! We love what we do and we look forward to exploring the Island with you soon.

  • This was by far the most FUN ride I’ve done at a destination. It was fun because we were not in a nose-to-tail single file. We were allowed to take the horse into the ocean, allowed to hang back, ride...  more »

  • 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. I wouldn't pay for the petting zoo because I think it's a rip off. On my visit there were only goats in there. It seemed very dirty in there with the pigeons flying around in there. Charlie is in the office and free to view.
  • My daughter and I had so much fun! My daughter is 6 and was able to ride a horse on her own. Chum Bucket was well mannered and well trained. My horse, Hercules, was a great horse. He loved to run but did not like going in the water (don’t blame him. It was cold!!). The guides were really friendly and made the ride fun. They even let us brush our horses after the ride. Made my day. THANKS GUYS!!!
