Do you want to come play at Schlitterbahn, but don’t want to pay for food inside the park?
To accommodate guests who would prefer to eat their own food but don’t want to leave the park and eat alone in their cars, Schlitterbahn allows guests to bring in coolers full of food and drinks.

I know not all of us out there are top chefs, so here we have listed are some easy, semi-healthy, and fun summer recipes that should travel well in coolers – while being able to skip the basic sandwich options. (You can find some recipes from our Ice Chest Challenge)

A quick thing to remember when packing your coolers, Schlitterbahn does not allow the admittance of alcohol or glass containers. None of the following recipes call for either of those, so just remember those two rules of thumb and your picnic will be golden!
