MASSIV Update: Slide in Place

A water coaster needs four things to make it work: height, slide, plumbing, and electricity. We were excited to be on hand for the placement of the first two segments.

MASSIV Update: Towers Rise

Walking around the site, you realize just how challenging it is to squeeze something so MASSIVE into such a tight spot, and how creative the ride designers had to be to make it happen.

MASSIV Update: Footers

Before it’s time to put in steel towers for MASSIV, World’s Tallest Water Coaster, one must dig deep. Not within ourselves, because we did that a long time ago when we first started thinking about taking on this massive project. Dig deep into the ground! Dig deep into the ground! These footers for MASSIV’s to are five feet deep and about 15 feet by 15 feet. Of course, this area had vegetation, so  there are some palm trees in the way. Our landscapers will be in to move them. Then the digging will continue. And continue. And continue! Here’s a...

“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!

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
