Tips on Bringing Your Cooler to Schlitterbahn

Schlitterbahn is proud to the one waterpark/amusement park that lets you bring in a cooler for free! Most parks won’t let you bring in a bottle of water, let alone an entire cooler. Since we see literally thousands of ice chests each summer, we decided to put together a video outlining some basic tips:     1. Buy a cooler with wheels. Trust us, that cooler gets heavier throughout the day even if you empty it. 2. No glass. Don’t bring food or drink in glass. There are three kinds of foods people always forget to repackage: pickles, salsa,...

Winning Recipes from Schlitterbahn’s Moms Ice Chest Challenge

Last year we invited chefs to give us their best recipes for packing ice chests – this year we decided to take a different approach. Let’s ask moms! The ability to bring in your own picnic is one of the greatest values at the family-owned and operated Schlitterbahn Waterparks. Schlitterbahn is the only large family of waterparks that still allows guests to bring in ice chests for free  – it’s a value no one appreciates more than moms. This summer Schlitterbahn asked family bloggers from around the country to take part in the Schlitterbahn Moms’ Ice Chest Challenge.  Bloggers...

Awesome local waterpark

my kids and i visit almost every sunday during the summer months , we live about an hour away , but well worth the drive , parking is easy and accessible, they let you bring in your own food and drinks , the attractions are plentiful , and the staff is very friendly, the lazy river is awesome , there are days we just float around that the whole time, see a short line for a ride , jump out and it usually outs you right back in the river, food is available, we just normally end our day with a oreo cookie funnel cake located by the exit. -- Brian C., Trip Advisor for Galveston location

"Four night stay over Christmas-New Years. Great time and friendly staff. Hotel room nice and large...five of us had plenty of room. The torrent river rocks!!! Rode for a couple hours every day...exhausting and memorable! The two tube slides were good in the enclosed waterpark...only wish there were a couple more slides. Thanks for a great vacation!" --Shane S., Trip Advisor (regarding our South Padre Resort)
