Blast Pass FAQ

Schlitterbahn is making rides a whole lot more fun. Thanks to the Blast Pass in New Braunfels. Available NOW! Guests who opt to pay the additional fee for a Blast Pass Wristband can have a blast while they wait! Instead of standing in line, guests can register for a ride time, then play in the park until it’s their turn. This is the first time Schlitterbahn is offering this kind of pass to guests. Here’s our FAQ: What is a Blast Pass? A Blast Pass is a ride reservation system that allows you to have a blast while you wait! Allows you to reserve a ride time and avoid standing in line. Basically, you rent one of our Blast Pass wristbands, then go to a kiosk to reserve a ride on one of nine rides in the park. Then the wristband will tell you when you can head over to the ride for your turn. You are still waiting, but you can go play in another area while the time ticks down. What does it look like? We are so glad you asked. Snazzy, right?   Do I HAVE to wait? Yes, but we do sell a SUPER Blast Pass for a little more that will cut your wait time in half.   Sounds amazing? Where do I buy it? We sell it in three locations: Main: in a booth under...

“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.

Fun!

"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)

“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!
