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...Read More
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...Read More
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,...Read More
Sometimes you just can’t plan your summer vacation during the week when most waterparks and theme parks are less busy. Here at Schlitterbahn, in July and August the weekend is the most popular time to visit. Now I know this can be frustrating, but fear not! You just have to follow the “6 P’s.” Prior Proper Planning Prevents Poor Performance…well, maybe the performance part doesn’t quite fit, but still “prior planning” will definitely make your trip much smoother. Here are some Pro-Tip’s when visiting Schlitterbahn New Braunfels during peak season: 1. Stay at our Resort! Staying with us...Read More
After a three and half hour car trip with multiple pit stops, screaming kids and spilled soda you’ve finally made to it Schlitterbahn! You’re unloading all of your bags, ice chests, kiddos and checking into the resort eager to get everyone in a swimsuit and covered in sunscreen so you can salvage what’s left of the day. And hey, this trip isn’t just about the kids, you deserve this too! As you start to unpack all of the essentials, it dawns on you…..where’s YOUR swimsuit? Oh wait, you forgot sunscreen…How could you forget sunscreen? No sunglasses?…I mean sure you...Read More

“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!- Brooke G, Tripadvisor, Visited August 2017, Galveston, Texas

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

“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.
