I am not a big fan of playing in the water mostly because I am not a swimmer. My youngest daughter went to Schlitterbahn with a friend's family and raved about how fun it was. My wife pestered me to take the rest of the family. We finally went during a trip to Sea World. It was two days of... More

Since my first visit four years ago I have continuously looked forward to each summer just for Schlitterbahn, that's love at first splash. Here are my top 3 reasons why I love this place: 1. Its two parks in one, the West park has the newer rides that will have your heart pumping out of your chest. This is where... More

There are farmer's markets and then, the Hawi Farmer's Market. Meet/engage with locals who personify the Aloha Spirit. The fresh produce emanates freshly picked aromas. Lychee anyone? This red succulent fruit ripens in May. Absolutely the BEST!! Sample on the spot and you'll want to make room for as much as you can carry: at least 1/2 the price in... More

I've been going to schlitterbahn since I was 3 years old. I'm 21 now, so obviously I love this place. The rides are fun, the water is refreshing (especially for the Texas heat), and I love the free parking and bringing in your cooler is great. The only downside is the staff/lifeguards I don't know why you guys hire young... More

I Love, love, love this place! So do the kids! We get there an hour before it opens and we do not leave until an hour after it closes, every time! 1) Get there early for parking! 2) Bring your own food, the food there is good but $$$. I bring a cooler and make sandwiches, have fruit, bottles of... More

This Water Park is the Best in the world. Bed and Breakfast near by and if all the Hotel/motels are full... San Antonio is not far away. Families can have a cookout or a great picnic... The Comal river is naturally cold and fresh and clean... The smallest river in Texas I Believe! Children are not going to want to... More

it has been years since i visited this park and i love all the new areas that have been added. we got on the rides fairly quickly this time of year. most of the staff was very kind. we were able to bring our own "picnic" in so that saved us a little money.

It is a lot of stair climbing. So if u are not physically fit you will wish you were. All in all it is very exciting. I got stung by some bees hopefully they tend to the problem.

Thank you for taking the time to submit a review. There is a lot of walking at Schlitterbahn, but that is just because there is so much fun to be had! Bees are one of our more challenging guests at Schlitterbahn. Given that we adore our greenscapes at our parks, bees are going to be part of the territory. And... More

WORST RIDE THAT TAKES FOREVER: The green tubed dragon ride. It was my fault for going during 3-4 but I waited in line for and hour and thirty minutes on the first day they opened- which means barely anyone at all. BUT during those times everyone seemed to be there. This ride was BORING. No turns no dragons or special... More
