Ride Information

We have lots and lots of rides – and plenty to say about them. Click here to get the low down on several rides in every park along with videos, fun images, and some historical photos too!

Sustainability

Building in a sustainable way means looking for unique ways to use materials that others are tossing to landfills. In this series we talk about various elements in the parks and where they came from.

Resort Time

Nothing makes a Schlitterbahn Vacation more complete than staying on property – because EVERYONE wants to wake up next to a waterpark! We have a ton of information on room types, great photos, and checklists.

Testimonials

“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!

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
