Testimonials

“How is this not on EVERY top 10 list?”

One of the main reasons we chose Texas for our summer vacation is because Schlitterbahn was on many (not all) Top 10 waterparks in America list. It is by far the best waterpark I have ever been to. Especially the [West] side where the rides were integrated into the landscape and some use the water from the adjacent [Comal] River and even terminate in the river. It has 3 of the best tube rides I have ever been on and one of them goes through the whole park and takes 30-45 minutes. The [East] side is also good but it is more of the conventional type water park with the slides except it has 3 REALLY good lazy river/rapid type rides.

Great Place for Spring Break

Omgoodness gracious!!! I can say I loved this park a little more than we did  Katy....they have an indoor area and it was well warm enough for our little ones who came along. The wave pool lazy river thing was awesome!! We enjoyed that the most. But the heated pool for younger ones and the swim up bar was a great idea for families. I would definitely go here again. ? Thank you for having such a great place to go on Spring break!!

“Best Waterpark ever”

Kids are finally old enough for us to take them and not have to hang out in the kiddie pools all day. We all had a blast and were able to ride almost everything.
