If you can find a day without the crowd this is one of the great water parks of all time. The Flowrider is super fun and challenging and the super drop slide will leave your stomach in your throat. Bit pricey but a great family day in Galveston.

This water park is pretty standard. Lazy river, big water slides, etc. The place was moderately clean, for a water park, and not too crowded until about 2 pm. At 2 PM, the lines got drastically longer. Additionally, my group (6 people) could hardly find enough tubes to accommodate everyone. For $50, I suggest saving your money and just go... More

Hello, We are happy to hear that your grand daughter had a great birthday party at Schlitterbahn Galveston Island Waterpark. Towards the end of the summer season, the park isn't as popular as it would be in July or August. It definitely is a great opportunity to take advantage of the park by visiting in September. Thanks again for you... More

We came on a Sunday right after opening. I purchased to adult tickets with meal online so we picked up the wristbands and proceeded into the park. This is our first time at this park. We were greeted immediately by the pool and lots of picnic tables. We continued to walk a little deeper into the park and decided on... More

The cabana staff is fantastic - very friendly, helpful, and they kept any over-the-top rowdiness in check. The lifeguards were fantastic - friendly and talkative, but still kept an eye on everyone to make sure everyone stayed safe. Even on a breezy day when trash might have been blown all around, I didn't see a single thing in the water... More

We really had a blast at the Galveston Schlitterbahn waterpark. I had never been there before, but I would definitely return if we were in or near Galveston again. There was plenty for my 3 and 5 year old to do and they were begging to come back when we left. My only complaint would be that the areas for... More

We visited the park on the Sunday of Labor Day weekend. The weather was supposed to be bad that day, which is maybe why the park wasn't very crowded. It ended up just being overcast weather with not much rain, so we were happy about that. The lines were not long at all. We never had to wait more than... More

Hello, Thank you for visiting Schlitterbahn Galveston Island Waterpark and thank you for your comments. When we do have days of overcast weather, it will make the park less popular than compared to others. Which is a benefit to those that do visit and are able to experience the attractions/rides several times throughout the day. Everyone always enjoys the "freebies"... More
