Nice park

Been there in September 2015. 90% of the attractions open. Very nice the river with rapids. Loved the relaxing area as well as the food.

I took my nieces to the indoor section of Galveston Schlitterbaun last January and it was a little cool but still an enjoyable experience. They offered a refund if we were too cold but we chose to stay and tough it out. I've been to the outdoor park in the summer and the crowds are so much smaller than the... More

The Schlitterbahn organization knows how to build and maintain a water park. This park is clean, offers many options for food, has plenty of space to rest and relax, and hires well-mannered employees. The cost is relatively reasonable considering the fun and recreation experienced there. Parking is near by, but a tram on busy summer weekends would be a great... More

Hello, Thank you for kind words about the Schlitterbahn organization and the amenities that we have to offer. We do have a circle driveway at the front entrance to help drop off items on the day of your visit. It tends to help in a situation when you may have a car full of items. We hope to see you... More

We came in November when it was 42 degrees outside. Yet the water was warm and we enjoyed ourselves. Today we came it's 55 degrees outside. And the water almost matches the outdoor temps. It's freezing. We can't enjoy ourselves or have fun because we are hovering around the heaters. We paid for extra for the all you can eat... More

Visited last winter, which happened to be a cold winter in TX, They did a good job of making the place bearable considering how cold it was outside... we Had a family blast and made the best of it considering the weather. Need to revisit in the summer to get the full experience.

The family met up at Schlitterbahn. It was freezing outside so it was nice to have access to the indoor amenities. The little kids' area was very warm. The not so lazy river was a little chili The kids had to get out after two rounds. We had a great time.

This is a great water park and if they have not changed even have some extended summer time into the fall. Only reason I did not give it a five, I think the prices are a little high. It is difficult to find any discounts except maybe a season pass. With a family of 6 and a 75 mile trek... More

We came late in the afternoon to take advantage of the discounted ticket rate. The Christmas activities are slim but for the 3 hours we were there, what was open was plenty to keep the kiddos entertained. By far the best attractions are the torrent river with the intermittent waves and the outdoor heated pool. They had the football game,... More
