The best way to level up your day at Schlitterbahn is securing your spot in a cabana. There are many benefits to reserving your own cabana but there are some things many people don’t realize.

In this blog post, we will go through the details of cabana rentals, the best perks of having your own cabana and review the wide variety of cabana options in our New Braunfels and Galveston waterparks.

Admission Not Included

When you rent your cabana at the waterpark, it is important to remember that you waterpark ticket is not included in the purchase. The cabana rental is additional expense on top of your Schlitterbahn admission ticket. But ask any veteran – cabanas are totally worth the additional cost.

Premium Parking Access

All cabana rentals, in both New Braunfels and Galveston, come with premium parking access. In New Braunfels, cabana renters park in the parking lot directly across from the main entrance (aka the best spot in the house). In Galveston, you receive a complementary valet parking space. Secret benefit: you don’t have to worry about getting here super early for good parking.

Comes with a Locker

Every cabana comes with a locker either in or near the cabana location. This makes it super easy to secure your valuables without the hassle of purchasing a locker upon arrival. In New Braunfels, our lockers come with locks (key issued at check-in for $10 deposit). However, Schlitterbahn Galveston lockers do not come with a lock. Make sure to bring your own lock if you are headed to a cabana in Galveston.

Bonus Tips

Book in Advance – especially for weekends. Our cabanas often sell out on the weekends. Book yours early.

Bring your cooler, or not – At that cabana, you’ll have a wait staff to bring you your food. You can choose to leave your cooler at home, or bring it with you.

Bonus Wristbands – You will need to wear a special wristband that gives you access to the cabana exclusive area. Be sure you get the right size cabana and the right number of wristbands for your party.

Cabanas are tucked away – Familiarize yourself with the waterpark map when you book your cabana so you know exactly where to go.
