“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!

“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.

Awesome local waterpark
my kids and i visit almost every sunday during the summer months , we live about an hour away , but well worth the drive , parking is easy and accessible, they let you bring in your own food and drinks , the attractions are plentiful , and the staff is very friendly, the lazy river is awesome , there are days we just float around that the whole time, see a short line for a ride , jump out and it usually outs you right back in the river, food is available, we just normally end our day with a oreo cookie funnel cake located by the exit. -- Brian C., Trip Advisor for Galveston location
