Visited this park during my visit to Texas a few weeks ago. The first ride my sister and I attempted to go on we were turned away and told we were not clad in swim gear although other folks were being allowed with the same rash guards on. However, there was a variety of rides which we enjoyed thoroughly. My... More

The variety of water rides is ideal for all ages. The place was very clean and there are lots of life guards to protect little ones. I have been to the one in New Braunfels and preferred this as it wasn't as crowded and just as much fun

We decided to go on a Tuesday this summer right before school started thinking this would reduce the crowd. It did seem less crowded at first when we arrived at 10AM however just 2 hours later and with 3 of the big attractions closed due to staffing issues which I assume would have been due to the anticipation of low...

Went to this waterpark today, Monday, August 24. The front banner stated that the park was running on limited slides, due to Wasserfest, which apparently means that things are starting to shut down for the season. For half the price, half the park was open. And there were no lines. None. Zilch. Nada. Enjoyed the park. Immensely. We got our... More

Loved the not so lazy river. Our entire family had so much fun on the rapids and torrent river. Kids loved the slides as well.

I love Schlitterbahn but Galveston is NOTHING like New Braunfels. If you are looking for a water park in Galveston, this is the place to be but don't expect it to be like the original. One day is enough - 2-day passes are too much.

I was very surprised to see the lines were not near as long as I expected and we found a perfect nesting place as a central location for us all to meet. It is not the River experience at New Braunfels, but definitely a nice water park that last almost year round in TX because it is so hot. lol
