We have visited Schlitterbahn about 5 times in 15 years and this year was the best trip ever. I would like to offer some tips to help. If you can go before Fathers Day, it is less crowded because schools up north often don't let out for summer until mid-June. There are LOTS of benefits, if you stay at the park. You have your own parking spots. You get a great deal on tickets. We had a room on Sunday and Monday nights and for $50. per person, we got a wrist band that allowed us into the park on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday. That is a DEAL! It also allows you to get in at 9 AM, which is one hour before the normal 10 opening time. Plus, you have first choice of tables. Our teenagers got in line at 8:30 and were first ones in line to ride the Master Blaster. Then they rode the Black Knight and Wolf Pack and were back at the room by 10:30. Then you can spend the rest of the day riding the no line or less popular attractions. (My kids swear that Dragon's Revenge is the best ride of all). The park closes at 8 PM, but you can go to the Arcade, pool and hot tub until 11 or 12 at night. The condos at Surfenberg are the best rooms imo. Ours was old, but large & immaculate. We were 20 steps from Surfenberg and about 40 steps to the bus stop. And no train noise!
I haven't seen people say much about the new ride, The Falls. It was my favorite, I rode it 4 times and the best part is, it is a fast moving tube ride, with no lines, because there are about 5 places where you just grab a tube and wade into the water.
We brought all of our food with us, so the only money we spent on food and drinks at the park was for 1 pretzel. We brought rolling coolers with drinks and sandwiches for lunch. We had a bbq pit at the room, so we cooked hamburgers and fajitas.
If you are looking for a new, shiny, pristine, 4 star resort, Schlitterbahn is not for you. If you want old fashioned family fun at a 32 year old park with charm, then we will see you there!
