MASSIV Update: Slide in Place

A water coaster needs four things to make it work: height, slide, plumbing, and electricity. We were excited to be on hand for the placement of the first two segments.

MASSIV Update: Towers Rise

Walking around the site, you realize just how challenging it is to squeeze something so MASSIVE into such a tight spot, and how creative the ride designers had to be to make it happen.

MASSIV Update: Footers

Before it’s time to put in steel towers for MASSIV, World’s Tallest Water Coaster, one must dig deep. Not within ourselves, because we did that a long time ago when we first started thinking about taking on this massive project. Dig deep into the ground! Dig deep into the ground! These footers for MASSIV’s to are five feet deep and about 15 feet by 15 feet. Of course, this area had vegetation, so  there are some palm trees in the way. Our landscapers will be in to move them. Then the digging will continue. And continue. And continue! Here’s a...

“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!

“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!

“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.
