TRANSPORTAINMENT is the single coolest thing to ever happen to Schlitterbahn and the waterpark industry. Schlitterbahn Beach Waterpark was home to the first incarnation of Transportainment. If you think that is a made up word–it is!

Of course, so is Schlitterbahn, but that’s another blog post.

Transportainment combines Transportation-Sports-Entertainment into one word. And really, it is the best way to describe the interconnected river system featured at both Schlitterbahn parks. The hard part for our team is figuring out how to take a picture of “a mile-long interconnected river system that can be enjoyed by the whole family which seamlessly takes you from ride to ride while lounging in your tube so you never actually have to get out of the water to ride 85% of the rides in the park.” How does one communicate that entire thought in one phrase or three words? It would look pretty silly on a billboard.

So we opted for Transportainment.

TRANSPORTAINMENT is the single coolest thing to ever happen to Schlitterbahn or the waterpark industry (yes I said it again) and here’s why.

 

1. There are PLENTY of tube rides that you can get on instantly anytime you visit the park.

 

2. Single and double tubes are available so you can feel comfortable riding with your toddler.

3. You DO NOT have to get out of your tube ever (though we hope you will at some point.) This means you walk into the park, grab a tube, and can start floating right away. In New Braunfels you can ride the Aquaveyer back to the beginning AND NEVER STAND IN LINE.

4.  The only downside to Transportainment (if you can call it that) is that to maximize your river/tube time at Schlitterbahn you may need to pack sunblock in a waterproof case around your neck. Reapplying sunscreen while in your tube would require some pretty serious yoga moves.

However you choose to enjoy Transportainment is entirely up to you, but remember our motto:

Stay Calm and Tube On! Transportainment-style!
