Tips for Schlitterbahn

My husband and I are going to Schlitterbahn next week (without the kids!) and would appreciate any good tips for making the day more enjoyable. We do not have many opportunities to get away so I really want to make this a fun day without saying "I wish we had bought _ _ _", "I wish I had known about _ _ _", "why didn't we think of doing _ _ _" .

Make sure you wear water shoes that will not come off.. you will lose your sandals quickly... you don't want to be walking around barefoot.. likewise, don't wear good jewelry or anything that could come flying off.

You can take your food and drinks inside... no glass...and you can't take in booze... get there early and find a table to put your things.. I've been taking my kids for many years and have never had one thing disapper from my table..

There's a really nice hot tub bar close to the entrance and wave pool... make sure you do the Lazy River and float around the park..

One problem we had in the beginning was how to keep our valuables on us.. You can rent lockers, but we didn't want the hassle.. I bought a small plastic thermos type thing at walmart that has a strap I threw across my shoulder... It was large enough for keys, money and glasses... it worked great for us.. '

Have fun.. dh
