My wife and I went with the children, ages ranging from 6 to 17, before school started. This was our third trip to Galveston Schlitterbahn, and everyone had a great time as always. The younger children have less stamina, and so we went in the afternoon, at a discounted admission. There is plenty to do, and being able to carry... More

Greetings, Thanks for revisiting Schlitterbahn Galveston Island Waterpark. We are happy that everyone in the family enjoyed their return visit last August. Little ones can be a handful, but we do highly recommend the afternoon discount admission if guests have to make a short visit. Especially since the park is less popular at that time of the day. A lot... More

Great place to visit. Must be mobile, able to climb & descend steep stairs and tolerate small spaces.

Perhaps it's just me, but I expected a warmer atmosphere. We visited the park when only the inside part was open. There are two parts - the little kids side on the left and the big kids side on the right. The little kids side was definitely warmer. But, I had a big kid, so we stayed on the right... More

Hello, Thank you so much for visiting Schlitterbahn Galveston Island Waterpark. We are sad to hear that you did not enjoy your visit due to the cooler outdoor temperatures and apologize for any inconvenience. This is usually not the case during our heated indoor season. Our indoor waterpark was open through Sunday, January 4th, and we are now closed until... More

Pay extra and go early. The later in the day the more crowded it gets. I wouldn't bother going after warm months b/c alot of the park would be closed off. The New Braunfels location is much nicer but if you live close to Galveston it still fun. Take as little as possible in with you so everyones stuff can... More

Howdy, Thanks for visiting Schlitterbahn Galveston Island Waterpark and we are glad to hear that you had a fun experience at our location.

The water was a bit cold but its near impossible to heat millions of gallons of water to a hot level. The outdoor heated pool was awesome for the adults. A wonderful day with the family!

Many attractions were closed. It was cold. Raging river was open and great as usual. Two slides were open and surfing. Not many people. A really great winter experience for kids and adults too. This park is never as good as the one in new braufiles but it is close to us. A great plus

Do your kids like waterparks? Mine certainly do and they jump at the opportunity to visit whenever there is one nearby. We happen to live relatively close to one waterpark but never paid a visit until recently. That park is Schlitterbahn Galveston, one of three branches of the popular waterpark that started in New Braunfels. Schlitterbahn Galveston is open year-... More

We were staying in Houston before leaving on a cruise and arrived a few days before our departure so we decided to try this out. Overall we had a great time, no lines to speak of on any of the slides. One thing I didn't like was how hot the overhead heaters were along the pathways. A couple of them... More

I went there knowing it is off season and it would be limited, which was not a problem for us since our kids are small and do not like to go on the tall/scary rides yet. For the indoor area, you can use the kids pirate ship water playground, the lazy river and a few of the slides. The swim... More
