We go to Schlitterbahn every year and it's the best water park we've been. There are 3 or 4 parks that you can go but for a day pass it will not be enough to visit all parks. You need at least 2 day pass to visit 2 parks. There's plenty of toddler splash area and rides for big kids.... More

The last time we tried to visit Schlitterbahn we only got to see half as the original park was under renovation. On this trip, however, the full park was available to us and I was completely blown away. My kids, aged 15-2 had an absolute blast with the variety of water attractions. We ran out of time before we ran... More

We went there this summer and it was so much fun. We rented a condo for a week that was just a few blocks away so we could walk to the park and didn't have to worry about driving there and finding a parking place. My family loves water parks and this water park was awesome. We really enjoyed all... More

Thank you for taking the time to submit a review. I believe the favorite ride that you are referring to is The Falls, which is so much fun and also one of my favorites!..

This is the best place to go for entertaining kids and adults without the fear of big and scary rides. The rides are not boring kiddie rides, their actually more fun without the fear and the best part is they are all water rides. I would recommend this place to any and everyone I know and don't know.

This place wins international awards for Best Waterpark year after year. Arrive at opening and stay until close to get the most out of your visit. Better yet, if you're coming from out of town then stay at the on-site resort and you'll get extended park hours. If you're local (within 60 miles) then consider getting season passes - by... More

It is a great park with a ton of rides and attractions but, be warned, during the height of the summer on the weekends the lines are very, very long for the best rides. Best to go during the week and early in the morning or after 4 pm.

Thank you for taking the time to submit a review and for calling us a Water-Utopia! I couldn't agree more with you! July is our peak season and tends to be a busy month.

Our visit was a special "end of summer" trip for my son and his older half-brother. We stayed at the park resort to get early park access. While it got busy fast the boys still had fun all day long. Food and gifts are expensive, but can bring snacks and drinks so it is not that bad. We got a... More
