“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

“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.

“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.
