We stayed at the small cabins that they have. We went when the park was not open and it was great . The accommodation was very clean and comfortable. Will go back again.

Schlitterbahn in New Braunfels is the Disney World of water parks ( we visit Disney World once a year ). Our family was totally blown away. Strikes the right mixture of beauty, relaxation, thrills, and adventure. If you loathe waiting in line, you'll love that rides here last well over 10 minutes in length. There are many modern thrillers and... More

Passes are the way to go if you want to go more than once. My son loves the place, me not so much. For the price, I was expecting it to look a lot fresher and the toilets to be cleaner. It's great that you can take your own lunch, the consession stands are just as bad as six flags... More

Thank you for your review. We understand that it can become pricey so that is why we allow our guests to bring in their own food. If you do plan to visit more than once, a season pass is definitely your best deal and it comes with a book full of coupons. We are sorry to hear that you didn't... More

Fresh spring water park, super fun for everyone. Lots of nice trees and you can bring ice chests. Best water park I have ever been to! They have great lodging too.

My grandsons aged 13 & 8 were visiting for a week & of course they wanted to go to Schlitterbahn. Living so close, it's always a given that we will go. Mainly stayed at surfenburg & blastenhoff which was plenty for this grandma!!

We booked out trip for a 6 person Riverbend cabin. When we arrived at the resort, we were told we would be staying in a 4 person cabin. After some switching, we were given a 10 person cabin, but told we weren't able to check in until 4:30 (check-in is 4). We waited until 5:25, then tried to access our... More

There's always something fun to do at Schlitterbahn -- whether you like riding thrill rides, floating an endless river, or simply lounging by the pool. On-site lodging is pricey but worth it, since you get in an hour earlier!
