MTV following Schlitterbahn water park employees for new reality series

If you’ve ever seen one of those Travel Channel water park countdown shows, you’ve heard of Schlitterbahn, the huge water park in Texas. Soon, the park will be getting exposure on another network: MTV.

Waterpark, which has not yet been officially picked up, is “a coming-of-age story about the park’s workers, the majority of whom are 16 to 22” and who “deal with all kinds of teenage angst, from first job jitters to unrequited crushes,” the San Antonio Express-News reports, citing a 27-year-old park employee.

A park spokesperson “said camera crews would follow the cast members around the water park as they deal with the issues of the day, and after work as they hang out with friends.”

Last week, MTV producers started casting park employees, who “[were] encouraged to submit a headshot, bio and photos of friends,” according to the paper. The show may tape in the spring and air in a year or so.
