Testimonials

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

“Best Family Fun Time!”

There's always something fun to do at Schlitterbahn -- whether you like riding thrill rides, floating an endless river, or simply lounging by the pool. -- Lisa W., Trip Advisor

“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.
