People look for all kinds of signs of spring, but for us there’s no clearer sign than the re-opening of America’s #1 indoor waterpark – Schlitterbahn Galveston Island. Sure, some people will be on the lookout for returning swallows and the scent of early blooming flowers, but around here we are looking for the bright colors of brand new swimsuits and the smell of sunscreen! The good news our wait is over – Schlitterbahn Galveston Island Indoor Waterpark opens weekends in early March and daily for spring breakers, March 10 through the 18. It’s an early tropical getaway close...Read More

“Best Family Fun Time!”
There's always something fun to do at Schlitterbahn -- whether you like riding thrill rides, floating an endless river, or simply lounging by the pool. -- Lisa W., Trip Advisor

“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!

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
