South Padre Island
Horseback riding, zip-lining, and go-karting all in one attraction? You must be talking about the Island Adventure Park in South Padre Island, the park that offers great family-friendly activities on 40 acres of land between the Gulf of Mexico and Laguna Madre Bay.
Earning itself a spot on the Top 20 Things to Do in South Padre Island, this adventure park offers guests so many different options for fun, though its main draw is its horseback riding options. Your group can enjoy beachside, waters edge rides, as long as all riders are at least 6 years old and under 300 pounds. There are a few different riding choices, including the following:

Horseback riding not really your thing? How about zipping along the waterside ziplines? There are 6 total lines featured here, the towers and lines set up for a fast round-trip experience, allowing guests to make the most of their unlimited 45-minute zip adventure. There are no hand brakes with these zips, making it easier for all ages/abilities. You must be 10 years old and between 60 and 300 pounds to enjoy these lines.
The fun doesn't stop there, as there is also an onsite Petting Barn filled with small animals such as parrots, pigs, birds, calves, ponies, and much more.
