Hungry? Food Spots to try in New Braunfels

If you’re stopping by our New Braunfels Schlitterbahn Waterpark this Easter break, or are just planning ahead for your Summer Vacation, and are already dreading the moment someone in your group says “Where should we go to dinner?” and the awkward silence or “I don’t care” that follows, here’s a handy list of some of the most unique places to visit while in our lovely town. American For those of you that are looking for a little bit of everything, here are a couple classic NB spots to consider: Pat’s Place (menu I map) Pat’s Place is always a hopping spot for people visiting the waterpark or coming off the Comal River. Its location is prime, and is within walking distance if you’re staying in our Treehaus Luxury Suites or Condos by Surfenburg. They have a little bit of food of all types, but are mostly known for their sandwiches, burgers, and enchiladas. You’ll even get your drink served to you in a little mason jar! Also, if you’re not really feeling like going out, but don’t feel like making food, you can call ahead and grab your Take-out without the stress of waiting for a table. They have a couple back rooms, so if you have a large party, they should be able to pull enough tables together for you, you just might have to wait a bit!...

Food Ideas that are Cooler Approved and Perfect for a Waterpark

Do you want to come play at Schlitterbahn, but don’t want to pay for food inside the park? To accommodate guests who would prefer to eat their own food but don’t want to leave the park and eat alone in their cars, Schlitterbahn allows guests to bring in coolers full of food and drinks. I know not all of us out there are top chefs, so here we have 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. (You can find some recipes...

Here are some tips and tricks to having the ultimate Torrent River experience.     1.      To Tube or not to Tube, that is the question.

Outside the Waterpark Fun!

If you’re spending your vacation 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...

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

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

“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
