Comfortable, spacious and clean room. The kitchen was well equipped. We enjoyed the swimming pool and excellent water park. The whole family had a wonderful time at this resort. We definitely plan to go back next summer.

Our 3 bedroom suite in the old part of the park was a great location. The space was roomy and comfortable and the kitchen was well equipped. We really enjoyed the private patio and the convenience of the pool and parking lot. Every staff member we came into contact with was friendly, helpful and professional.

My family and I decided to spend a short vacation at the resort at Schlitterbaun. I initially was not thrilled about staying here due to the many times I have already spent at the water park and have been disappointed many times by the huge crowds, overpriced food and beverages, and just the sheer pandemonium that is only at Schlitterbaun....

Dear Willie J, Thank you for your review. I really appreciate you sharing your experience. The mixed feedback is very honest; this is something we greatly value from our guests. This lets us know what we're excelling at, need to keep doing, or need to work on. I'm pleased to hear that your experience, as a whole, was enjoyable. However,... More

Our room was great - we stayed in the old park. We really appreciated the ability to have the extra hour in the morning to play. I do wish a kiddie area was made available at 8 or 9am too (like the pirate ship over in Blastenoff). The room was clean, and had everything we needed. We've made 2-3 days... More

Dear Katy E, Thank you for your feedback. I'm glad you were able to take advantage of the Early Ride Time offered to resort guests; I'll certainly pass along your feedback regarding the early access to the kiddie locations to the Waterpark Management Team. Coordinating the operation of most of the attractions requires planning and strategy so as to make... More

Me and 2 teenage boys stayed in the one-bedroom cottage along the river in the old park, the Resort. This is like being in a quiet little neighborhood, very safe and comfortable. My kids used the heated pool close by and it was nice these are open late. The outdoor movies are great. Our cabin came fully loaded with kitchen... More

We stayed at Wasser Haus for one night. It is located just across the street from Blastenhof, so the location could not have been better. We spent the first day at the old park, and left Wasser Haus at 0830 the next day to have early entry into Blastenhof. It was only a 1 minute drive into the parking lot... More

Dear bbfam4, Thank you for your review. I really enjoyed reading your feedback, and you are right...it's tough to get any closer to our famous Master Blaster than when staying at the Wasser Haus. We agree - for value, location, and accessibility, we feel we're the best deal in town too!!! We hope to see you again!!! Live. Laugh. Splash!! More

Yes, staying at Schlitterbahn is expensive BUT we've been coming to Schlitterbahn a number of times with multiple friends and family AND it is a great time had by all! It's worth staying onsite for the extra hours you have access to the park. Henry Haus (Westside). When the kids were young, we staying in the original owner's home, the... More

Staying at the resort is an excellent idea. I would recommend spending the extra money to stay somewhere besides the wausser haus lodge. Parking is very limited and not designed for a super duty truck. Also, you can hear EVERYTHING that your "neighbors" upstairs do. The noise alone made the stay unpleasant. I really wish that we had spent the... More

Dear Txnurse0527, Thank you for your review. I'm am very sorry for the experience at the funnel cake location - it's something that we'll be looking further into. Your communication regarding speaking to the staff about the situation will also be followed up on to insure the information was delivered properly. The Wasser Lodge is a great location with prime...

We recently spent 4 days 3 nights here. it is a great value using the stay and play package.

Dear Barbie K, Thank you for your review. I'm glad to hear you enjoyed your time at the resort. I feel like our location along the river is one of the many things that separates us from other locations; there is definitely opportunity to reconnect with nature!!

Dear nmvanbramer, Thank you for your review. Sweet 16's only come once, so you only get one chance to get it right!! We're so very happy you decided to spend it with us.
