Food Ideas Perfect for a Waterpark

Do you want to come play at Schlitterbahn, but don’t want to pay for food inside the park?

I know not all of us out there are top chefs, so listed are some easy, semi healthy, and fun summer recipes that should travel well in coolers – while being able to skip the basic sandwich options. A few things to remember when packing...

Outside the Waterpark Fun!

If you’re spending Spring Break with us at our Schlitterbahn New Braunfels Waterpark and Resort, and are thinking to yourself, “self, what else am I going to do while I’m on vacation?” have no fear, because New Braunfels and its surrounding areas are full of fun activities your entire group can enjoy. Texas is known for its finicky weather, so in the event that there’s one day of your trip where the weather isn’t Waterpark-friendly, here are some alternative ideas on what to do! If you’re traveling with kiddos this year there are some kid-approved options in town and within about 20 miles from the Waterpark: In New Braunfels, about a mile from the Resort Office, we have our very own Children’s Museum. They have fun exhibits where the kids can let their imaginations run wild and they have a newly renovated Water Table outside with their Jungle Gym. Every day the Wonder Shop has a different interactive craft or experience! (I hear they even have their very own pet Turtles swimming around!!!) On the outskirts of New Braunfels, traveling towards San Antonio, lies Animal World and Snake Farm. It’s basically a mini Zoo in the middle of suburbia. You’ll see Lions & Zebras & Camels, Oh My! There’s also snakes (obviously) so if you have a reptile fear, maybe skip this one. For more info, check out their...

Schlitterbahn New Braunfels Schedule and Hours in 2017!

We here at Schlitterbahn anxiously wait every summer season as the Texas weather begins to give us snippets of warm weather early on in the year. Mostly we ask ourselves why it’s in the high 80s in early February while dreamily looking at the empty waterpark. While we technically can’t open until next month for our BAHN BREAK (own our way of celebrating Spring Break March 11 – 18, 2017), that doesn’t mean we can’t eagerly prepare the park’s summer 2017 schedule! We’ve also created a nice visual that show the different stages of our schedule and hours of operation as summer gets closer: What is Schlitterbahn Lite: Limited Attractions – Light on the Wallet! Schlitterbahn Lite has several stages that begin and end our summer season here in New Braunfels. Each of these stages help us kick off the summer season with Blastenhoff open during Spring Break or the entire East side of the waterpark open during certain days in May. It can be a little tricky to understand all the different stages, so here’s a breakdown of how it all works! Blastenhoff only Guests visiting during the Blastenhoff only time of the year will enjoy the world famous Master Blaster, thrills of Wolfpack and Black Knight or float the day away in the Torrent Wave River. Operating schedule for Blastenhoff: Blastenhoff and Surfenburg only At the beginning of...

Five Ways To Rock Your Schlitterbahn Gear in December

Happy Holidays everyone! With the winter weather settling here in Texas, it’s safe to say it definitely IS beginning to look a lot like Christmas. Just like you, I too am sad to have to trade my Schlitterbahn tube for tinsel but that means it’s time to rock all the winter gear I purchased during our 50% off sale last September! (Here’s a picture of my #BahnHaul this year.) Here are some ways I like to rock my Schlitterbahn gear during the holidays. Sipping on some hot cocoa by the fire while talking to my best friend Jill about all the fun times I had riding MASSIV this summer.  Refusing to give up on my Summer/Fourth of July vibes by rocking this trucker hat that screams, “AMERICA!” Cancelling out those grey/rainy skies by wearing a tie-dye long sleeve that brightens anyone’s day. Wearing long, warm socks on those below 40-degree days to help  remind my toes of those days we were running around Schlitterbahn without a care in the world .  Wearing this jacket that subtly says Schlitterbahn so everyone knows what i’m really thinking about while I wait for my car to warm up.  Now don’t get me wrong, I love the cold weather (to a certain extent) but nothing is better than riding The Falls in New Braunfels during a hot summer day. That’s all I’ll be thinking...

The Best

Best waterpark in the world! -- Heather M., Facebook

“Worth the off season price!”

I stayed in the luxury tree house during off season. It is nestled amongst the tremendous water park which is currently closed. The tree house itself was immaculate on the inside. The beds are amazing and the furniture has the tree house look. You actually check in at a location off site which went very smooth. ...Off season this place is QUIET!!! Great sleeping. There is a river running along your tree house. I would imagine in season the noise level would be another story but then again your staying inside a water park. I can't imagine this not being heaven for any kid in the middle of summer. --Bookiepoo, TripAdvisor

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
