“Was not worth the hype to our family”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Waterpark was ok to our family. The wave pool was the best part of the park. Lines were long everywhere else.

I am sorry to hear that your experience was only ok with us this past summer, but we' re glad to hear you enjoy the wave pool. The wave pool and the torrent are both great spots in the park for families to gather together!

We struggle with lines, as do many summer attractions. Here are a few things that can help: consider planning your trip early in the Summer, when lines are a little shorter. Come early in the day and plan to hit the popular rides first.

We look forward to seeing you again this summer!

“Best water park in Texas”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

The absolutely best water park to visit for the diversity of rides, sun/shade, picnic area, etc.
You have your choice of going between being in the full sun or in and out of shady areas. We love it as adults.......of course we bring kids along occasionaly (JUST FOR SHOW....LOL)

“There are not enough starts for this waterpark!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

If you ever get the chance to go to New Braunfels, say you're visiting San Antonio, or Austin, do it. The Schlitterbahn Waterpark is the very best of its kind. The water is from a river! The Comal river, is that cool or what? It has free parking, you can bring in your own food, and has the best water rides in the country! On a hot day, it also has long lines for the better rides, but it is so very worth it, besides people in line talk to each other (us Texans are sooo friendly) and it is really a fun experience! There are sleeping accomodations, but not many, plan way ahead if you want to stay at the park, but there are all kinds of other places to stay nearby, and New Braunfels is a wonderful, sleepy little Texas town. I highly recommend it.

“The Best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013

Hot Texas, long lines that move fast and cool water make the best day ever. You can bring your own food which helps if you have picky eaters or want to save some money, the food is very good thought. Tubs for babies and toddlers. The middle park is just made for young families. The buses between the parks run all day and are very clean. The staff is young but most are very curteous.

“Nice scenery”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

This water park is alot of fun but gets very packed. Love the old park. Lots of trees and shade. Newer side nice also. Lazy river is big and fast flowing. Great place to take the family. Expect to wait an hour+ for some rides. You can take an icechest in too and nobody messes with your stuff.
