Attractions in the Alamo Ranch area are plentiful. Two major theme parks—SeaWorld San Antonio and Six Flags Fiesta Texas—are within just a short drive. SeaWorld San Antonio offers shows, rides and slides, water play and animal attractions. The park is spread out over 250 acres, making it the largest of its kind in the world. Six Flags Fiesta Texas features a similar line-up of activities, just without the marine life theme. This park is known for its thrill rides, but visitors can also enjoy musical performances and shows. In the summer months, thrill seekers can race down the high-speed water slides at Six Flags' White Water Bay water park, which is adjacent to the main park.
Also close to Alamo Ranch is the Hyatt Hill Country Resort and Spa. The resort is an ideal venue for celebrating special events or treating your out-of-town guests. The 27-hole golf course, designed by Arthur Hills, is just one feature of this high-end destination. Guests can also make use of the hotel's four-acre water park, tennis courts and full-feature spa.
