Still so much fun no matter how many times you've been. Getting there early and getting a bench in the shade is key.

I have to say I was sadly disappointed in this Schlitterbahn Waterpark...I have been to the one in New Braunfels and the one on Galveston Island several times and always have an amazing time but this was sadly lacking..It was very nicely suited for my 4yr old but the 10 ,13 and 15 year olds were bored to tears.

Rudy G, Thanks for visiting and glad you had a good time. While hard to compare to our New Braunfels property, ranked the #1 waterpark in the country 17 years running, our beachfront access, cutting-edge technology and ease in getting around from both the indoor and outdoor sections, makes us the favorite Schlitterbahn of many of our multi-park visitors.

We had a blast and rode all the rides. Loved being able to float around from ride to ride instead of walking and waiting on the hot concrete. Showed up at opening time and there were plenty of nice shady tables to choose from. Finding a float was never a problem, they have plenty to go around. Also noticed that... More

we rented a cabana and it was peaceful and quiet and very comfortable with waitress service that was attentive and courteous. the boogie bahn was mazing and the lazy river had a lot of fun kinetic stuff as well as long stretches of floating with bypasses so you can select your experience as you go

This is a great idea for families of all ages. This year we discovered Sea Trek. This is a must do. It is an aquarium that contains hundreds of sea creatures that you are either snorkeling or scuba diving with. We were on our way out of the park, when we decided to check it out.

Michael L, Thanks for the kind words and glad you enjoyed Sea Trek....Sea Trek is an underground "aquarium" that allows users to snorkel, dive or even walk the bottom of the tank while interacting with local, native marine life.

This is a great place to go especially for young children under the age of 10. The only thing I would change is the splash cash. It is sold in $10 increments so when you get change there is no place to put it. I wish they have the credit card style like they have in New Braunfels. Other than... More

I gave this park a four just because of it's price. It's priced the same as New Braunfels and Galveston but has way too little rides. What I do enjoy is that our kids are young teenagers and they can go anywhere without mom hovering or worrying about them getting lost. We were able to just relax and bump into... More
