Went to the water park during the summer with my friends. Was the first time I had ever been to one as Ireland's weather does not permit for these fun outdoor places. We had the best day going around all the slides. We only had time to do the main part but I think there is a second one a... More

I always find it hard rating an attraction on trip advisor when it is less than very good but higher than average- its just good. We were expecting just the one park being open so we were less disappointed than some of the other recent reviews. We arrived at two to make the most of the afternoon prices (slightly reduced)...

Most of the park was closed during Spring Break but the small part that was open was ok. Nothing spectacular.

Thank you for taking the time to submit a review. Due to Texas Weather being unpredictable, we only open one section of Schlitterbahn for Spring Break. I am sorry that you were not able to enjoy the full park. It is truly a great experience to be had. I hope you get to visit us again this summer! #bahnlove More

Every summer my family gets a season pass to schlitterbahn because of the diversity of three parks and so much to do.

It was alright. It was hot and the lines were long, but what else can you expect from a large waterpark? The new park was really nice, and the rides were fun for all ages, but the old park was pretty nasty. We brought our own food for a family of four (13,16, and two adults), and that was a... More

Schlitterbahn is a great water park, unfortunately the minimum wait for any of the water slides is two hours. With the amount of time we stood in line we only got to ride two of the slides and spent the whole day there. If you just enjoy the lazy river or the wave pool you will spend time in the... More
