There’s No Such Ride Called “The Lazy River”

I spent a summer at Schlitterbahn New Braunfels as an operations manager and next to, “what time is it?’ the second most frequently asked question was, “where’s the lazy river?” We don’t have a ride called “the lazy river,” but throughout the years park goers have coined the term to name their favorite tube ride. It has always elicited confusion from us as employees…we are never quite sure after asking the guest a series of questions, as to what they mean by “lazy river”, and if we had sent them to the correct attraction. Which leads to the $64...

White Water Tube Chute

Schlitterbahn New Braunfels has many tube chutes in the original section of the park. So many twists, turns, exits and entrances, it can get confusing as to which tube chute you’re actually on… I started on the tube chute next to the castle, but it’s not called the Hillside Tube Chute, but it’s close… Where am I?! So, not to be confused by the Cliffhanger or the Hillside Tube Chute… Here is everything you need to know about the White Water Tube Chute! 1. It is located at the front entrance to the Original Schlitterbahn (Main Park.) Once you...

It’s best for summer fun

Visited last winter, which happened to be a cold winter in TX, They did a good job of making the place bearable considering how cold it was outside... we had a family blast and made the best of it considering the weather. Need to revisit in the summer to get the full experience. --Jalayola, Trip Advisor for Galveston location

“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.
