Living on the Island here, I think the best kept secret is taking the kids after the prices go down in the later afternoon. The crowd starts thinning out and the lines are shorter. But if you're staying at a hotel, go for the day.

Toooooo many people, water was dirty. The cabanas were lovely and I highly recommend getting one if you r going to go here. It gives u personal space that is reserved for you and your guests.

My first visit and my family had a blast. I was a bit leery because of the complaints of it being cold during the indoor season. BUT after calling I was told the water averages somewhere between 70-75 (I think) during the winter months. The weather was about 65 outside the day we went. It was a beautiful sunny day... More

We went to Schlitterbahn Galveston during Spring Break last year and even though the outside temperature was colder this year, it was better fun. They had the heaters earlier and they actually worked for the most part. Last year they had many heaters which were not working. Staff was friendly. If there was one thing that could improve, it would... More

We usually go during the off season to ride the lazy river and it never disappoints! We have a blast every time we go! During the peak season of summer this place rivals any waterpark in the south to me. Theres plenty to eat and drink and activities galore for all ages.

Thanks for visiting Schlitterbahn Galveston Island Indoor Waterpark. We are happy to hear that you enjoyed your visit! The Torrent "tidal wave" River is one of my favorites as well. It's kind of like mixing a wave pool and lazy river together, but there it nothing lazy about it. It's difficult to describe but definitely a lot of fun once... More

When we first visited Schlitterbahn several winters ago, it was great. The water and temps were warm. However, when my family visited last spring break during the heated indoor season, it was freezing cold! Some of the employees wore sweatshirts. We stayed only an hour and left because it was too cold. Waste of money. It seems the place is... More

It is always dirty and nasty. Too crowded and most people are not polite. It really cost a lot and you are not getting what you pay for.

We had a very good day at Schlitterbahn given that it was cold. They had many of the slides open and provided heated walkways throughout. The hot tub pool was large and the swim up bar is located in the heated section. I also loved that the bar area was reserved and children were not allowed in that section. Made... More
