Giving a Forest New Life In 2011 over 32,000 acres of Loblolly Pines were destroyed in the Bastrop Complex Wildfire. Schlitterbahn reached out to reclaim the wood by salvaging a section of burned forest. We salvaged thousands of felled logs that were destined for the chipper. You’ll find part of this Loblolly Pine Forest has been given new life throughout every park as furniture, paneling, cabinets and more. We even had a celebration with the community of Bastrop to share the second life of the Bastrop...Read More
There is no such thing as scrap wood at Schlitterbahn! The ceiling just under the TreeHauses in our Surfenburg area of our New Braunfels park is decorated with rings from various trees used for building throughout our park. The majority of our wood comes from fallen trees – for example, the Loblolly Pines from the Bastrop fire, or the large black walnut tree taken down in a road construction project in Kansas. How many can you identify in this...Read More

“A MUST Visit!!”
This is by far the best waterpark I've ever visited, and I've been to many. It is huge and there is so much to do. The lazy river is just amazing and goes on and on forever. And the wave pool is so much fun. There's plenty of chairs and tables to put your belongings, and you can bring your own cooler with your own food which I would advise you to do. Love it, love, love it!! I can't wait to go back next year!!

“Lived here 33 years. Here’s the lowdown”
I've lived in New Braunfels for 33 years. Here is my take on Schlitterbahn. It's a fun place for families or singles. It is in two sections so if you get tired of one you can go to another via shuttle. Lots and lots of different rides ranging from just floating to wild ones. There are sections in both parks for young children with lounge chairs for moms and dads. This is my one big tip: go the first week in June or wait until late August. During the height of the season lines can be long and it's very hot here. Wear water shoes as you'll be doing the hot asphalt dance if you don't have any, bring sunblock, etc. They let coolers in so park somewhere where all family members can meet. It's been my experience that theft is minimal and for our family we have never had a problem. Hope this helps and have fun!

“Great place to spend your Summer!”
I make it a point to invest in season passes for my entire family year after year. This place offers plenty of shade, bring your own food, (a must for that busy mom) and of course attraction for all ages. Every life guard is professionally trained and has hours of continuing education per year. I can not rave on their customer service enough, the entire staff from front entrance to gift shop employees are very professional and helpful. Blessed to live so close to one of the Worlds BEST (if not the best) waterparks.
