Cool place to go. Will need two days to do everything. I'm looking into cottages on the resort next time.

This is a yearly tradition and we were very pleased. New attractions keep us coming back. We have been to their other locations but New Braunfels is by far our favorite location.

NOTE: this review is just for the park. This is not for the rooms. Park only here. We rented cabanas for the days we were in the park. At about $350 a day, i think it was worth it to stay out of the relentless sun and to get free waters. The attendant lady was very very friendly, kudos to... More

If you ever have an opportunity to spend a day at Schlitterbahn trust me you won't be disappointed. I loved this place as a kid growing up and now my family has season passes so we can go as often as possible. It doesn't hurt that we live five miles away either. The park is separated into a West and... More

Perfect time to visit. School started back the same week so there were no crowds at all and prices were reduced by about 40%. Rides for all levels of thrill seekers and non thrill seekers. Nice short getaway.

I'll start with the best thing... lots of shade! This park is built around the existing nature of the area, next to the river and large trees. The river water is pumped into the park to work all the slides. This is a nice improvement over your standard water park, usually a wasteland of asphalt and concrete with very little... More

It's a huge water park with some of the greatest slides. Young and old can find a place to cool off here. the greatest thing is that you can bring in your own food and drinks. Despite the huge crowds, there are plenty of seats for everyone. We hope to make this an annual adventure.

We reserved a cabana in the River Bend BBQ Palapas on the east side. It's right next to the parking lot, so not a far trek, and also off the beaten path. If you have small children to watch, there are several wading pools, and small water attractions that are within eyesight. If you get there early, you can get... More
