“Lived here 33 years. Here’s the lowdown”

I've lived in New Braunfels for 33 years. Here is my take on Schlitterbahn. It's a fun place for families or singles. It is in two sections so if you get tired of one you can go to another via shuttle. Lots and lots of different rides ranging from just floating to wild ones. There are sections in both parks for young children with lounge chairs for moms and dads. This is my one big tip: go the first week in June or wait until late August. During the height of the season lines can be long and it's very hot here. Wear water shoes as you'll be doing the hot asphalt dance if you don't have any, bring sunblock, etc. They let coolers in so park somewhere where all family members can meet. It's been my experience that theft is minimal and for our family we have never had a problem. Hope this helps and have fun!

Always fun!

Always fun! Get two day pass if you can afford it so you can come and go. The park cannot be done in one day just fyi.

Great Place for Spring Break

Omgoodness gracious!!! I can say I loved this park a little more than we did  Katy....they have an indoor area and it was well warm enough for our little ones who came along. The wave pool lazy river thing was awesome!! We enjoyed that the most. But the heated pool for younger ones and the swim up bar was a great idea for families. I would definitely go here again. ? Thank you for having such a great place to go on Spring break!!
