Having fun with  family and friends doesn’t have to break the bank.  At family owned and operated Schlitterbahn, we have a few tips for saving cash and still having a blast at Schlitterbahn.

Buy your season pass early! Let’s face it, since parking is free and you can bring your own picnic, you can make Schlitterbahn your focus of affordable summer fun. Buy your pass early while we have them on sale. Early bird pricing is the cheapest price all year. And if you already have a pass, renew it early for extra savings.

Two days are better than one. Two day passes are the best deal if a season pass doesn’t make sense for you. The two day passes don’t have to be used on consecutive days and given how much there is to do at Schlitterbahn, you’ll need another day to take advantage of the fun!

Pack for your adventure. You can bring your own food and drinks (no glass or alcohol) in your own cooler, so pack for the day.  You can find some great tips on keeping your cooler cool here and great recipes for your hungry crew here.

Make a check list to eliminate those “I forgot my sunscreen” moments. We’ve got a great one for you here.
