40th Anniversary

We are turning 40! Come join us for the celebration – giveaways, concerts, and special events. There’s even a family reunion!

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!


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.

“Great place to spend your Summer!”

I make it a point to invest in season passes for my entire family year after year. This place offers plenty of shade, bring your own food, (a must for that busy mom) and of course attraction for all ages. Every life guard is professionally trained and has hours of continuing education per year. I can not rave on their customer service enough, the entire staff from front entrance to gift shop employees are very professional and helpful. Blessed to live so close to one of the Worlds BEST (if not the best) waterparks.

“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

"Family fun" Fantastic! Whole family had a great time. Wasn’t too busy so we had a choice of walking or floating from ride to ride. Went to the dinner show and that was enjoyable as well. Go to the one near San Antonio too!
