Back in 1966, along a stretch of a tree-lined, spring-fed river in the Texas Hill Country, Bob and Billye Henry and their three children began creating what would eventually become the world’s first water resort and the nation’s most popular summertime waterpark. Since what they were building had never been attempted before, the Henrys relied on their own vision of combining water fun and resort accommodations into a family destination.
At the Resort at Schlitterbahn, we know how important it is to have fun and enjoy every moment you spend with family and friends while you visit.
Not only do we provide a wide variety of resort accommodations to reserve for your vacation, we also make sure to provide all sorts of fun activities everyone in your group can enjoy!
Waterpark fun for the day of check-in through check-out!
While the waterpark is open during regular operating hours (April – mid September), every resort guest that stays on property has access to the park through our Splash, Sleep Repeat package. As explained in our Splash, Sleep, Repeat: Tips and Tricks blog post guests are offered the ultimate waterpark experience for an extra fee per person, per night.
What’s this ultimate waterpark experience I speak of? Schlitterbahn Resort guests get access to the waterpark from the day of check-in through the day of check-out!
ICYMI: Our Concierge team would also be more than happy to get you set up with in-park family activities before you begin your day at the park: Sky Coaster Flights, Cabana Rentals and Boogie Bahn Lessons.
What about after a fun-filled day at the waterpark?
Every evening starting at 7 p.m., resort guests are welcome to join our friendly staff for an evening of planned activities located on the lawn next to the Resort Office.
Activities include: Campfires, S’mores, Hula Hoop, Scavenger Hunts, Movie Nights with Popcorn, Fishing, Board and Yard games.
Family friendly movie nights.
Shortly after sunset, a family friendly movie will be screened for resort guests to enjoy. Our lovely activities staff also prepares popcorn and has roasting sticks for anyone who would like to make some s’mores at our campfire. We highly encourage guests bring blankets and pillows to enjoy the movie from the lawn!
Still want to play in the water?
We have several pools open to resort guests until 10 p.m. for anyone who would like to keep swimming after the park closes, make sure to ask your concierge for information on the pool closest to your resort room.
Good place to grab a bite or have a drink?
Our resort guests get exclusive access to the Biergarten swim-up bar and Pizza Parlor until 9:00 p.m. (an hour after the park closes.)
It’s a great place to relax once the park closes and get some delicious pizza and frozen drinks or beer.
Also make sure to stop by the family arcade that is open till 11:00 p.m.!
What if we want to explore the New Braunfels area?
Good question! Our friendly concierge services team would be more than happy to get you directions, restaurant reservations, tickets to local attractions & events, and shuttle service to tube the Comal river.
Oh man! I can’t wait to come visit!
