Schlitterbahn Gives Back During the Holidays

In hopes of spreading holiday cheer, representatives from Schlitterbahn Waterparks participated in different events  with one unifying mission: to give back to the community and spread #bahnlove. Schlitterbahn Corpus Christi participated in the annual Share Your Christmas food and money drive for the Food Bank of Corpus Christi, which was promoted through an all day broadcast at the KIII-TV studios, an ABC affiliate for the Corpus Christi area. The Corpus Christi team collected money for two weeks prior to the money drive and were able to donate $650 the day of the fundraiser. The team also took part in...

The Hillside Tube Chute

What sets Schlitterbahn New Braunfels apart from all other waterparks is our tube chutes in the original section. New Braunfels is known for rivers and floating, so Schlitterbahn took that concept and employed that vibe in its ride. Those of us who “grew up Schlitterbahn” all have our favorite tube chute and have absolutely no problem with the Comal water being 72 degrees. We’re Schlitterbahn vets and we know what’s up. The Hillside tube chute is definitely my fave, and here are a few fun historical facts you might not have known: 1. The Hillside tube chute was the...

Tips on Bringing Your Cooler to Schlitterbahn

Schlitterbahn is proud to the one waterpark/amusement park that lets you bring in a cooler for free! Most parks won’t let you bring in a bottle of water, let alone an entire cooler. Since we see literally thousands of ice chests each summer, we decided to put together a video outlining some basic tips:     1. Buy a cooler with wheels. Trust us, that cooler gets heavier throughout the day even if you empty it. 2. No glass. Don’t bring food or drink in glass. There are three kinds of foods people always forget to repackage: pickles, salsa,...

How to do Schlitterbahn New Braunfels on a Busy Day

Sometimes you just can’t plan your summer vacation during the week when most waterparks and theme parks are less busy.

“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.

“Great Day with just me and my daughter”

Decided to spend a few days in Galveston before the end of summer and went to Schlitterbahn. We had a great time, just the two of us, but I have some tips. BRING WATER SHOES (not sexy I know) The ground got really hot in some places and we ended up wearing our flip flops everywhere and hiding them right before we went on the rides, then we had to circle back after we finished the ride. Spring for a LOCKER, some of the best money spent, but use the lockers at the very back as the lockers in the front get crowded and you have to wait to get in them. We did not bring in any coolers (which I know you can) so the food we had was good and the one beer I had was really cold, which was nice since it was so hot. GET THERE AS EARLY AS YOU CAN. The park did not start getting crowded unitl around noon.

“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!
