Schlitterbahn Renames River


One Paw Up for Schlitterbahn renaming Torrent River to Go Spurs Go River! One Paw Up for Schlitterbahn renaming Torrent River to Go Spurs Go River! Schlitterbahn announced today they have renamed the Torrent River, the park’s popular wave river, Go Spurs Go River. “The Heat may have a beach, but the Spurs have Schlitterbahn!” said Schatze, the park’s mascot and spokes dog.

Officials are unsure when Schatze managed to get the banner in place, although based on photos found on Schatze’s phone, speculation is that he had help from many members of the park’s operations crew overnight.

“We are all pretty intense Spurs fans around here,” said Darren Hill, Schlitterbahn New Braunfels General Manager. “So we decided to go ahead and rename the river.”

Schatze has been sporting a Spurs jersey at the park front gates for over a week, and has been seen practicing jump shots during his breaks.
