Schlitterbahn Gives Back During the Holidays

In hopes of spreading holiday cheer, representatives from Schlitterbahn Waterparks participated in different events  with one unifying mission: to give back to the community and spread #bahnlove. Schlitterbahn Corpus Christi participated in the annual Share Your Christmas food and money drive for the Food Bank of Corpus Christi, which was promoted through an all day broadcast at the KIII-TV studios, an ABC affiliate for the Corpus Christi area. The Corpus Christi team collected money for two weeks prior to the money drive and were able to donate $650 the day of the fundraiser. The team also took part in...

The Hillside Tube Chute

What sets Schlitterbahn New Braunfels apart from all other waterparks is our tube chutes in the original section. New Braunfels is known for rivers and floating, so Schlitterbahn took that concept and employed that vibe in its ride. Those of us who “grew up Schlitterbahn” all have our favorite tube chute and have absolutely no problem with the Comal water being 72 degrees. We’re Schlitterbahn vets and we know what’s up. The Hillside tube chute is definitely my fave, and here are a few fun historical facts you might not have known: 1. The Hillside tube chute was the...

5 Reasons You Need to Have Brunch with Alex Meixner

ICYMI: Wurstfest partygoers staying at our New Braunfels Resort got to have brunch with Grammy-nominated artist/accordion king, Alex Meixner. Yes, THE Alex Meixner. He’s been performing since he was 6 years old and has headlined a variety of music festivals across the United States since then. If you’ve ever been to Wurstfest, you know how cray it can get.  Partly because Alex knows just how to get the crowd going.  Don’t believe me? Watch Alex throw it down at the 2013 10-Day Salute to Sausage with Canadian Accordion Champion, Michael Bridge. Crazy, right? In case you needed some closure, here’s a list of reasons that’ll...

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,...

How to do Schlitterbahn New Braunfels on a Busy Day

Sometimes you just can’t plan your summer vacation during the week when most waterparks and theme parks are less busy. Here at Schlitterbahn, in July and August the weekend is the most popular time to visit. Now I know this can be frustrating, but fear not!  You just have to follow the “6 P’s.” Prior Proper Planning Prevents Poor Performance…well, maybe the performance part doesn’t quite fit, but still “prior planning” will definitely make your trip much smoother. Here are some Pro-Tip’s when visiting Schlitterbahn New Braunfels during peak season: 1. Stay at our Resort!   Staying with us...

“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!

“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.

“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!
