Riptide Auto Wash is a Texas company striving to provide our customers the best car wash experience in town.  We use safe, state-of-the-art equipment and significant amount of soaps, polishes, and waxes to provide you a clean, dry, and shiny car.  Need help?  Just ask one of our friendly and knowledgeable service members to guide you through the experience and choose which option is best for you.

How it Works

Find out how our car wash is different than other washes in town, how it works, and what you need to do to get your car clean.

Step 1

Choose your Wash

Pull up to our pay station terminal. It will guide you through three options:

  • Choose one of our three pre-packaged washes
  • Build your own wash or
  • Purchase one of our Unlimited Wash Club plans

Not sure which options to choose? No problem, our team member can explain the differences in each package and which one is right for you. Once you choose, the terminal will guild you through the payment process.

Step 2

Enter the Tunnel

Once you’ve selected your wash, paid and proceeded past the gate, one of team members will guide you onto the conveyor and make sure you are ready to go – unlike other washes, you never need to leave the comfort of your vehicle. When directed, place the vehicle in neutral, take your hands off the wheel, keep your foot of the brake, and get ready to enjoy the show!

Step 3

Proceed Through the Wash

Our wash uses safe, state-of the-art equipment and soaps/polishes, and waxes to clean, shine, protect, and dry your vehicle in only 3 minutes! You don’t need to do anything during this process except to sit back and relax.

Step 4

Exit the Tunnel

Once you’ve finished washing your vehicle, a light at the end of the tunnel will flash “GO” indicating it is safe to leave the tunnel. At this point, you have two options:

  • No time to vacuum the inside? Simply exit the wash and enjoy your clean, shiny car.
  • Want to clean the inside yourself?  Feel free to use one of our FREE vacuum stations.
