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.

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).

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.

Doyle & Dolores Wells

The ride was awesome! We all went as a big group and rode over to the Gulf, down the link of the beach and back. It was entertaining and a good time for us all half the fun was getting the horses to go the right way. The guides were very friendly and helpful. Definable recommend this attraction

We went for the morning Tasha was our guide along with two other younger guys and they all did great. The trail is beautiful. It's up and down the dunes as well as along the beach. All the horses have different names and personalities which was super interesting to meet them. My stirrups got uncomfortable and the guys fixed them... More

My family loved horse back riding at Adventure Park. Great price and the staff was very friendly! It started on time and was only $45 per person for an hour and a half of riding.

I'm glad we drove to the end of the road to find this place it's literally at the end of the road. The facility is kind of rundown but the idea is great. The petting zoo was phenomenal. The kids absolutely loved it and the birds, they got to hold the kids and mess with the horses, then run across... More

The staff was very friendly and laid back. Me and a friend enjoyed the zip lining and horseback riding on the beach. The entire experience was very relaxing, fun and memorable.

Very friendly staff and trail horses being trail horses like to stick close together. For some that is not comfortable. Riding on the beach is a new pleasure most riders have never done and the riding the dunes is also a great treat for most. The longer ride in the morning has less riders so more enjoyable. The staff try's... More

We have had some very enjoyable zip line experiences and jumped at the chance to do ziplining during our trip on S. Padre Island. The experience was disappointing. The Adventure Park also offered horseback riding so we called to find out how close the zip lines were to the horses (I am allergic to horses). We were told that the... More

This was SO much fun!! We did a morning ride on the beach and through the dunes. It was an hour and a half of wonderful bliss! The guides were just awesome! This is a trip for all ages (I am 65) my only regret was I did not have time to zip line too.....I will be back!!

We booked the horseback ride online for the following morning. Once everyone was on a horse we took off for a long ride on the beach and on the sand dunes. Every horse had a unique personality so it made for an interesting ride. The scenery was beautiful and the guides were great.
