“We Loved Schlitterbahn!”

There is something for everyone at Schlitterbahn New Braunfels! Young and old. Our favorite ride was The Falls. This is one massive lazy river with several different features. You can circle the whole east side (new side) of the park and never have to get out of your tube. There are rapids and slow parts. This was great for our family consisting of two adults, a 10 year old and a 2 year old. We all could ride together and there was some thrill and some laziness. There are lots of big water roller coasters too for the thrill seekers.

There are lots of different areas for small children. My 10 y/o and I would go on the big rides and my husband would hang with the 2 y/o and we would switch. I recommend planning 2 days minimum to experience it all. We did the East side the first day and the West side the second day. There is a free tram that will take you back and forth from park to park. The west side is spring fed water and it's extremely cold, even in the heat of the summer.

We stayed off site and when we go back we will book a room at the resort for convenience sake. It's not that much more expensive for an "economy" room and admission is included in the price. Also, you get access to the park an hour earlier this way. This can help you stake out your spot of loungers and get in line for the rides with the big crowd draw.

They allow you to bring your own cooler of food and water. This is a great way to save on meals and snacks. We just left it at our chairs and no one ever bothered it.

We will definitely be back!

Schlitterbahn Rocks

Every since visiting the original Schlitterbahn in New Braunfels, I've been a fan of these water parks and have returned often. In 2014, we bought a season pass to the park in Galveston and visited at least 10 times. My daughter loves it and constantly asks to go back ...
Overall, Schlitterbahn is worth the time and money. In my opinion, the park in Galveston is just as good as the one in New Braunfels. So go and stay all day! Have fun! --Joseph, Trip Advisor for Galveston location
