Used to live in the area when Schlitterbahn started. Clearly, it's grown to two separate areas, with shuttle bus between the two. Sadly, the lockers for your things are not near the entrance to the original park. Once at the lockers, prepare for a $10 charge (you get $2 back if you return the key) which is not posted on...

Schlitterbahn is awesome! Our family just enjoyed our annual summer visit for the 9th straight year, and it was no less of a blast than in previous years. While the lines were short the last week before school started, some of the longer rides that end up in the river were closed in the old park due to a shortage... More

Loved the older side - water was cold and refreshing, but rides had some rough spots. The newer side was more for the thrills.

Had a great time on a 2 day ticket, which is needed to really enjoy everything. Wear comfortable suit/shorts that won't rub in the wrong places, and lots of sunscreen!

Schlitterbahn Water Park in New Braunfels, TX is a great time. There is so much to do, from young to old, those looking for thrill rides and those looking for just a lazy river, away to beat the heat.

My girlfriend and I had a great time. I try to go at least once a year. The staff looked bored out of their mind and weren't as friendly as in the past. We went to get a drink at the bar and the girl was barely paying attention. She kept talking to another co worker about another mistake she... More

Our family of 5 (3 kids ages 7, 5, and 1) plus my parents and my nephew (age 5) stayed in the Tree Haus suites for 2 nights. We had a fabulous time right up until my 5 year old had to be rescued due to operator error (read more below). We started the check in process on Tuesday around... More

It’s been years since my last visit to Schlitterbahn, and I was amazed at how much the place has grown. Major expansion and renovations everywhere. The owners have invested heavily to make Schlitterbahn a world-class waterpark. I wasn’t expecting to have a great day here, since I don’t do “thrill rides” and am not a strong swimmer. However, even people... More

Simply stated, this is the world's best water park. If you've never been, go, explore all areas of the park. Visit the park at least 2 days!
