Dragon Blaster

The first time that I rode Galveston's Dragon Blaster, I had no idea what I was in for. Literally, my friend was like, "Let's ride that ride!" And me not paying attention, was like "Yeah, for sure!...Whatever" As I started to climb the stairs I realized that the...

It’s best for summer fun

Visited last winter, which happened to be a cold winter in TX, They did a good job of making the place bearable considering how cold it was outside... we had a family blast and made the best of it considering the weather. Need to revisit in the summer to get the full experience. --Jalayola, Trip Advisor for Galveston location

“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!
