Bob Henry – a son’s eulogy

Bob Henry – a son’s eulogy

We would sit around the dinner table and he would lay out his plans for the next day or the next project. All of us kids would join him on the job—I still remember him creating a competition between us for who could install the most shingles on a roof one afternoon and Mom would go about booking reservations for the rooms…

In Memory of Our Founder, Bob Henry

Mr. Bob, from the very start, dreamed of having a family business where he and his entire family could work together. Today he leaves behind a legacy of hard work, dedication, and commitment to creating a place where families – even beyond his own – could work and play together and make great memories.

Fantastic!

"Family fun" Fantastic! Whole family had a great time. Wasn’t too busy so we had a choice of walking or floating from ride to ride. Went to the dinner show and that was enjoyable as well. Go to the one near San Antonio too!

“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.

“Very cool place, lots of great slides and rides!”

We went here in the middle of the week in July. It wasn't super crowded. My 2.5 yr old couldn't do everything of course but man I can't wait until he can. They have lots of awesome rides and a couple great lazy rivers. The water was clean, which I liked. Good food, beer and concessions as well. Admission prices were not too crazy. We really enjoyed the park and will go again. It was a lot different than the original one in New Braunfels but not in a bad way, at all. They are both great water parks.
