Been here many times. Always have a great time. Waited in line for the large big raft, big circle tubes ride for 2 solid hours because my grandson wanted to ride. Very frustrating. Need more tubes and workers to load them up and get them going. Everything else was good.

Thank you for taking the time to submit a review! We are are always looking for constructive criticism to make our waterpark the the absolute best! The large circle tube ride is the Wolfpack and may have a longer wait time because our rafts have to go up the conveyor belt. I will pass your note along to our team... More

I've been going to Schlitterbahn since the late 1980s. I hadn't been in over ten years and we just went this past weekend. We hit the second to last weekend of the year and it was perfect. Texas happened to have gotten a cool front and the temps were in the 70s but the water was no colder than normal.... More

Thank you for taking the time to submit a review! I am so happy to hear that you enjoyed your visit with us! Schlitterbahn definitely just keeps getting BETTER with age! Your tip is a very good tip, and a rule I always follow! Ride the Master Blaster first, and then conclude the day in shade at the main park!... More

We visited Schlitterbahn twice this summer, and stayed at the resort both times. Since we stayed at the resort, we were able to enjoy the park for two days both times. There are so many rides that you should plan 2 days or plan a very full day there. Parking is FREE and coolers and food are allowed. At the... More

So sorry to hear about your shirt – we always recommend guests wear swimwear since fabrics not designed for swimming can respond to chlorinated water differently. If you would like to discuss this further please email us at fun@schlitterbahn.com. Thank you and enjoy the rest of the summer! More

It is a nice park. A little pack for my taste. Had to go for long lines for every attraction we rode. There are some lockers where one can keep personal stuff.

I went with my family and had a great time. Clean park, nice employees! Lost a camera on the river ride and reported it. They found it, called us, sent it back to our home, it still worked! I would definitely come back!!!

We went Sept. 27 for a one night stay at the resort. We arrived to find the resort mostly empty. We were not informed while making the reservation that the park was closed except for a small section with the wave pool and 4 slides. My 5 and 6 yr. old grandsons enjoyed the area for about 2 hours and... More

More rides than we could possibly cover in one day. This is the classic original. Bring your coolers with your own food and drink. there is plenty in the park, but it's not cheap. Water shoes are almost a requirement. That pavement can get pretty hot. Go during the week if you can to avoid the crowds. Lines can get... More

Every summer I bring my son to this Texas institution. It's a great value and a great time. Free parking! They let you bring coolers in, including food and drinks. Everyone is always friendly and helpful and the place is always clean.
