We went on a cloudy day which was perfect for us. Not too hot. Great fun for whole family. The torrent river was the best which is a lazy river with large waves. You can bring your coolers and food in. We got there early which is good because after 3pm when you can get afternoon ticket discount, it got... More

The concrete was SO HOT you could barely walk on it and no where to just... More

growing up I visited the New Braunfels park every year for my birthday so I was pretty disappointed when I saw this one was no where near that level of awesome. If you want the true schlitterbahn experience thats really where you need to go. That being said, this one was still fun. One thing about the new braunfels park... More

We had lots of fun here. My husband and I got there early in the morn befor all the crowds came, so we were able to on most of the rides with minimal lines. Loved the fact that people could come with their picnics, and outside food. I know lots of amusement parks don't allow it but it saves you... More

So many waterparks nickel and dime you to death. We were able to bring in a cooler with drinks and snacks. If we had planned better we should have brought supplies to make sandwiches or picked up lunch on the way. Park food was good but as expected, very pricey! $6.50 for a small dip-n-dots. There were lots of options... More

Howdy, Thank you for visiting Schlitterbahn Galveston. We are glad that everyone had an awesome time on our rides and enjoyed the free amenities. Everyone enjoys the "freebies" that we offer with the free parking, free life jackets, and free tubes. As well as you mentioned, that we allow our guests to bring in their own picnics into the park... More

We rented a cabana and shouldn't have because there was plenty of picnic table space. We visited the park on a Friday, and expected it to be crowded, but it wasn't. I visited Schlitterbahn with 3 teens, and they had a blast!

Wasn't the largest of the water parks, but was the perfect size for the family. Great ride features and small lines.
