We loved the wolf pack. That was awesome! I suggest much bigger and more frequent waves on the Torrent River. The Dragon Blaster would be WAY better if you used the same floatie you used on the Wolf Pack because, that thing scraped against my kids' butt and that hurt. We loved the Wave Lagoon. My kids were going to... More

There is only one exit/entrance area wich helps to monitor with lost children being sure they don't leave, but there is no guard to help assure that children do not leave un-supervised.

Went on Saturday 5.16.15 Apparently had alot of field trips from schools. Lines went fast had good time in water but speed of service in almost all food areas sucked BIG TIME. Bbq was dry and tough. Pretzel tasted old. Next time will bring own food. Lockers very small and need more changing rooms.

Hello, Thanks so much for coming out to Schlitterbahn Galveston this past Saturday. We are so happy to hear that you enjoyed your time in the water on your day of visit.

We recently visited the Galveston Schlitterbahn for the first time, after yearly summer trips to the New Braunfels parks the past three summers. I may have been disappointed with this park had I purchased full-price tickets (we went on a day most all the park was open but purchased discounted tickets through a third party). The park itself is quite... More

I went with my sister and cousin, all of us 16-19. Overall the experience was enjoyable, but lacked that extra thrill. Was for the most part something for families with children. The facilities were nice, they staff was helpful and the water was refreshing, So yes, overall a great place to take your kids just not the older ones probably.... More

My kids loved this place, It was still a bit chilly outside when we went, but the heaters inside were nice. The slides and lazy river were super cold, but the kids didn't mind much, we just went and got back into the heated kiddie pool area and warmed up after each ride. I wanted to check out the floating... More
