Testimonials

“A lot of fun”

Thank you Schlitterbahn family for your dedication to our military. My husband entered the park for free and the family was half off the price of admission. This is a phenomenal discount and we really appreciate it. We had a great day.

We used the lockers for our valuables then parked our towels and lunch at the covered Wasserfest kids area. There was plenty of space and it was quieter here than in other areas. There was also a clock which I know was a complaint of other visitors.

If you don't want your feet chewed up use the lazy river that encircles the park to get to each attraction. You still have some walking to do if you choose this option so water shoes are a good idea. We did not have them and survived but it was really hot!

We had no problems finding employees to give us directions, in fact one employee overheard me asking a question to my husband and quickly chimed in. Also, whenever I asked any employee for the time, they quickly answered.

Overall it was a great value for our family. Parking is free, the souvenir shops were not overpriced, and you can bring your own food in. The lockers were anywhere from $10 for a small locker to $25 for a large locker. You could get in and out of the locker all day as needed.

Our children are 10 and 12 and big for there age so they were not prohibited on any of the attractions. In my opinion there is plenty to do even if your children are not tall enough for the attractions. We spent hours in the lazy river which has a wave section and a rapids section. There were also numerous wave pools and some slides for smaller kids. We were there all day and I still don't think we covered every part of the park. It was a lot of fun!

“Very cool place, lots of great slides and rides!”

We went here in the middle of the week in July. It wasn't super crowded. My 2.5 yr old couldn't do everything of course but man I can't wait until he can. They have lots of awesome rides and a couple great lazy rivers. The water was clean, which I liked. Good food, beer and concessions as well. Admission prices were not too crazy. We really enjoyed the park and will go again. It was a lot different than the original one in New Braunfels but not in a bad way, at all. They are both great water parks.

“A MUST Visit!!”

This is by far the best waterpark I've ever visited, and I've been to many. It is huge and there is so much to do. The lazy river is just amazing and goes on and on forever. And the wave pool is so much fun. There's plenty of chairs and tables to put your belongings, and you can bring your own cooler with your own food which I would advise you to do. Love it, love, love it!! I can't wait to go back next year!!
