Construction Diaries: Corpus Christi – Swim up bar and Chute!

In Corpus Christi our crews have had some real fun lately putting the finishing touches on what has to be one of our most gorgeous swim up bars. Not everyone realizes, but the first swim up bars were at Schlitterbahn, where we know mom and dad don’t mind having an adult beverage while keeping an eye on the little ones. And this beauty is going to be the perfect place to order up a cold beer or frozen margarita. That’s Kate Messer from the Austin Chronicle. She came by to get the inside scoop on what’s happening in Schlitterbahn...

Construction Diaries: New In Galveston

What’s going on?  Recently, large shipments began arriving at Schlitterbahn Galveston Island and speculation is running wild. Are those sections of fiberglass and steel currently occupying a parking lot next to the Indoor Waterpark?  Yes, that’s exactly what they are. What’s it going to be?  Unfortunately, I’ve been sworn to secrecy and can’t be specific.  Suffice to say we’re all crazy with anticipation! This is going to be the best summer...

Corpus Christi Top FAQ’s: You asked, we answered!

When is opening day? Waterparks and theme parks have one huge disadvantage when it comes to building – all our stuff is outside!  Things like the weather can have a huge impact on opening dates. So rather than announce an opening this far out, we are going to work diligently and hope for good weather. As we get closer we will be announcing our opening date on our Facebook page, on this blog, on slow moving turtles, EVERYWHERE! We want everything to be perfect for opening day! When will season passes be available for purchase? We are still working on pricing. We want to...

Construction Diaries: Galveston

Locals on Galveston Island were greeted with a strange sight last week–two of our slides had vanished!  The fiberglass sections that made up the F5 Twin Twisters body slides were gone from the tallest slide tower in the park.  Our rivers may look strange without water in them during the winter months, but that’s nothing compared to the site of one of our signature attractions suddenly gone. BEFORE & AFTER                          Well have no fear…at least not until the new themed experience that replaces the F5 Twin Twisters opens this summer! Construction began January 23 and the is expected to be complete by Memorial Day weekend. Details about the new ride...

The Shutdown Countdown

The clock is ticking for Schlitterbahn Galveston Island Waterpark.  Each January and February when our park is closed you’d think would be a slow time.  It’s just the opposite at SGIW. We take the opportunity to perform annual maintenance and rehabilitation on our park. Schlitterbahn Galveston Island is open for three thrilling seasons spanning 10 months.  That leaves eight weeks to make any repairs, changes or improvements to our facilities.  Shutdown 2014 is shaping up to be one of the busiest.  The Rohr! and Faust & Furious body slides are getting a new gel coat and the F5 Twin Twister...

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

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

Schlitterbahn Rocks

Every since visiting the original Schlitterbahn in New Braunfels, I've been a fan of these water parks and have returned often. In 2014, we bought a season pass to the park in Galveston and visited at least 10 times. My daughter loves it and constantly asks to go back ...
Overall, Schlitterbahn is worth the time and money. In my opinion, the park in Galveston is just as good as the one in New Braunfels. So go and stay all day! Have fun! --Joseph, Trip Advisor for Galveston location
