Wonderful place!

I've been going to Schlitterbahn for over 20 years and it still does not disappoint. While yes, it's very crowded regardless of the day of the week, they do seem to do a good... read more

We visited the Schlitterbahn waterpark in September. Unfortunately the slogan "World's best waterpark" is not correct in my opinion. Every waterpark in Florida is way better and mostly less crowded. However there are some cool slides and the lazy river is just awesome! I would come back once. Maybe not tomorrow but next year.

Schlitterbahn is fun no matter how old you or your kids are. There's shade, shallow pools for kids, long floating rides, short exciting rides, picnic tables (you can bring your own coolers to eat there), and lots of snacks and food. You can rent a locker to put your stuff in...leave your glasses in it!! Mine were knocked off by... More

This place is a popular place to visit, considering how large of a water park it is. If you're looking for short lines, don't go here. It is very busy, but some of the best places to go are. Long lines are a downfall. With the heat and length of wait, you can easily become dehydrated. Just be smart about... More

It's great to be in your late twenties early thirties and act like a teenager, you know run from slide to slide, lounge on the lazy river and surf on the surf ride which is a total rush! I just loved this place. Live in Dallas and will gladly make the commute again!

I've been going to Schlitterbahn for over 20 years and it still does not disappoint. While yes, it's very crowded regardless of the day of the week, they do seem to do a good job of processing people. My only minor complaint is that they should try to get more picnic tables. We arrived right at opening and were fortunate... More

Super duper fun trip with grandkids (ages 8 & 10). We got there when they opened and left when they closed. Lots for all ages and abilities!

I really was not interested in going because it was super hot this summer, but I had the most amazing fun with my daughter and granddaughter. We found a perfect place to sit and relax in the water and just view the persons and families around having fun. they also allowed food inside so that was a savings for no... More

This is the place to cool down. Our family goes every year. It wouldn't be summer without going. Plenty of shade when you want to get out of the sun. You can bring your own ice chest.

Summer 2016 I bought season passes to Schlitterbahn for my kids (boys ages 4 and 7) and myself. We live in Austin and went about 10 times during the summer. You can read all the other reviews about how great the rides are, how the parking is FREE, how you can bring in coolers, etc. But the best part to... More

I've been to several water parks, and never have I been to one better than the New Braunfels Schlitterbahn! This is such a fun park to go to and it seriously has something for all ages. The rides are fantastic. My kids love to go on the long lazy rivers and wave pool. The food is not the cheapest in... More
