“Great family fun!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013 via mobile

We go there just about every year. It's about an 8+ hour drive but always worth it if we stay 2 days or more. We stayed in a cabin on the resort this year. Definitely worth it. The mid day nap when the lines get a little long was perfect. Even though the lines were long on many of the rides, they went fast. We love the old and new sides. Water volleyball is fun when you just want to be in the water. Overall a perfect summer family fun get away!

Thank you so much for your review! We are very pleased to hear that you had a great time while visiting this summer! Staying at the resort offers many great perks, one definitely being that you can take a mid-afternoon nap to recuperate. Glad the eight hour drive was worth it for you! We hope to see you again. Enjoy the rest of you summer.

“great fun!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2013

This is the second time we have been to Schlitterbahns and we have enjoyed it just as much as the first time! The only thing I wished they had was the transport river that you could ride between the two parks! Also couldn't find the new ride the falls no signs anywhere...the best part was the torrant river on the new side of the park..My kids loved it! also think you should be able to transfer your locker between parks! overall its a great time and will be back!

Thank you for your review! We are very happy to hear that you had a great time while visiting us again! We often get the question on why we don't have a ride connecting the parks. Hopefully, one day in the future that will be a possibility. We hope to see you again! Enjoy your summer.

“Our annual family waterpark fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2013

Pros: Free Parking. Prices are fair. Foods/Drinks/Coolers are allowed. Plenty of covered patio tables for your picnic. Rides on the new side are very exciting and fun. The wave pool is great and the tubes/life jackets are all free. Many restaurants near the park, driving distance within minutes. Plenty of lounge chairs to relax in. Lifeguards everywhere, looked alert. Pools aren't too deep.

Cons: buying food there is very expensive, as is any other park. The old side was pretty dirty, needs to be updated. The kids pool at the old side smelled like Urine! Having children I understand that it happens, but the park should find better ways to cover up the smell. It's so strong. The lines are really long if you go on the weekend, could wait over 1 1/2 hours for a ride that is only 30 seconds. I wish they had more thrilling water rides. Nothing is too scary to try there. There's alot of walking so i would really suggest wearing swim shoes or sandals. Our first trip I didn't wear any, but by afternoon, it was so hot that my feet had blisters. Sunblock is a must, but you will still be sunburned...trust me...Be prepared to not go to work the following day. You will be exhausted.

Overall: This is an excellent waterpark we go to once a year with our family.We bring our own food and drinks, with about 20 of us, its great and cheap to bring our own foods. If you live in Texas, it's a must place to go to. You won't regret it. Have fun!

TIP:::DOn't forget to get on the bus to ride to the other location....Our very first time there we didn't realize they had a second park. Wear your swim shoes!

“Crowded”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2013

We had a great time at this park, but it was so crowded that we didn't wait in line for many of the slides. The lazy river on the old side was a bit ridiculous, not what I would call lazy.
The new side was a blast. My kids really enjoyed the park.
