A great place to cool off when it's hot. The lazy river is awesome. Schlitterbahn has the most inventive water rides and is always a treat.

The Schlitterbahn in Galveston is smaller than the original, but its still a lot of fun for all. The park is nice and clean, and well attended. The staff appeared to be well trained. The park is not like the New Braunfels park, so if you are expecting something of that caliber, you will be disappointed. Overall, its fun for... More

This park is much smaller than the sister parks in New Braunfels and South Padre. We came on a Monday and Tuesday and got 2 day tickets. Brought 3 grandkids with me and they were bored after half a day. The slides are similar to other parks but they are small and not so many of them. On the 2nd... More

Check this one out with or without the kids. We spent an entire day just having way too much fun floating around. My kids are older and took off and only came to us when they needed food and drink. Buying season passes this month

On a recent trip to Galveston, we spent a nine hours in one day at Schlitterbahn. We thoroughly enjoyed. I love that they allow you to bring in your own food or drinks because the food and drinks for sell there are expensive. However, we did learn that you cannot bring in a drink if it is not sealed. We... More

We always go to the park early before it gets too crowded so we can have shorter lines and do more rides quicker. We love all the rides and activities. The lazy river is a treat; we love the wave part, but if you have small children be cautious because it gets crowded and tubes can tip and kids can... More

I have been to this location before; Do not expect this to be anything like the original Schlitterbahn in New Braunfels Tx. Small family water park. not for the thrill seekers. You can still have a good time and hang out. If you are expecting the real "Schlitterbahn" experience, you will be disappointed.

We were there on a Saturday, but we were still able to ride rides with minimal wait time in lines. Always a plus to be able to bring in own picnic to eat.

Hello, Thank you for visiting Schlitterbahn Galveston this past Saturday and glad you experienced a fun time at our waterpark. Saturday's in June can get popular with our rides and happy that it was a minimal wait for you to experience the attractions. As you mentioned, families can bring in their own picnics into the park (no glass or alcohol).... More

The lazy river is awesome. This is a great waterpark. Bring your cooler and plan an entire day. We took the entire family (4 kids) and there were things to do for all ages. I will be back.
