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

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

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.
