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

“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.

“We Loved Schlitterbahn!”
There is something for everyone at Schlitterbahn New Braunfels! Young and old. Our favorite ride was The Falls. This is one massive lazy river with several different features. You can circle the whole east side (new side) of the park and never have to get out of your tube. There are rapids and slow parts. This was great for our family consisting of two adults, a 10 year old and a 2 year old. We all could ride together and there was some thrill and some laziness. There are lots of big water roller coasters too for the thrill seekers.
There are lots of different areas for small children. My 10 y/o and I would go on the big rides and my husband would hang with the 2 y/o and we would switch. I recommend planning 2 days minimum to experience it all. We did the East side the first day and the West side the second day. There is a free tram that will take you back and forth from park to park. The west side is spring fed water and it's extremely cold, even in the heat of the summer.
We stayed off site and when we go back we will book a room at the resort for convenience sake. It's not that much more expensive for an "economy" room and admission is included in the price. Also, you get access to the park an hour earlier this way. This can help you stake out your spot of loungers and get in line for the rides with the big crowd draw.
They allow you to bring your own cooler of food and water. This is a great way to save on meals and snacks. We just left it at our chairs and no one ever bothered it.
We will definitely be back!
