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

It's been ok, not enough tubes to go around and people are holding on to them when they aren't even in the water. There are lots of attentive lifeguards keeping an eye on the kids. Indoor areas feel like hothouses, need some sort of air circulation, not here for sauna. One negative...we called and asked if we had to pay... More

We had a great time at Schlitterbahn. We went in the beginning of April when only the indoor part was open. It was a very fun thing to do on a day when the weather was windy and not so great for sitting on the beach. It was great for our family of 8 ranging in age from ages 7... More

Hello, Thank you for visiting Schlitterbahn Galveston Island Waterpark. We are glad that everyone had a great time while visiting the indoor portion of the waterpark.

Schlitterbahn is a big waterpark, with well-kept public areas and rides. The park is not the problem. The crowd is the problem: in the last few years they have developed a gang problem that the management seems perfectly willing to accept as long as they get their money. I would rather drive to a park that is further away, or... More

Oh. My. Gosh. There is nothing related to indoors or warm about this! When they put a message on their website about the "extreme cold weather" in March in Texas, it should give you a clue that they are making an excuse. I love the New Braunfels location and have a season pass, but I feel cheated for spending $30... More
