It needed something more to add excitement, like colors or festive scenery. If I used 1 word to describe this place it would be BASIC!

This place seems like it was designed by people in an office 1000 miles away. I imagine it was fun to come up with the plan but when it came time to execute their plan it was a complete failure. The layout is so convoluted. You have to walk so far before you get anywhere. You're paraded through the gift... More

This has become our favorite place to play in water. One never has to get out of the water/tube if they choose not to. The water carries you from place to place. Fun for small children also with two areas for little ones.

Great fun. Good place to let loose with friends. Incident on the slide is a tragedy but the rest of the park was great

Great place to spend the day. A perk is they do not charge for parking. Kansas gets extremely hot and sunny so if you can, get there early to stake out chairs with shade. The swim up bar is great for the adults but 2 bartenders always seem to be overwhelmed. My son absolutely loved the lazy river and would... More

Every year we make it our last hoorah to go to Schlitterbahn Waterpark before the kids start school, this year was no exception. We purchased a cabana for our visit which was amazing, the staff was friendly and helpful, we then proceeded to lock our stuff up and enjoy the day. With 2 younger children the bottom 2 seater rafts... More

This place was supposed to have shopping centers and tree house hotel rooms when they originally started building. What a huge disappointment. We get bored here. Not worth the price.

I've been a season pass holder for four years and have always loved schlitterbahn. However this season has been a disappointment. We thought we'd go for the last "official weekend of summer". Labor Day weekend. Rides were closed that weekend, not just the verruckt. Although it's nice you get to bring in your own cooler, the security when you enter... More

We met up with aunts and uncles and grandparents and cousins in August. It was busy and some rides had long lines but there was enough to do that it wasn't a problem. I was very impressed with the lazy river, which was more of a river rapids ride. It was fun and eliminated the need to get out of... More

We had a lot of fun at Schlitterbahn. Crystal River, the Black Knight, the Wolfpack those rides were crazy. If you've never tried Boogie Bahning you should that was cool it's like surfing; the children really enjoyed it. If you want to get on some thrillers try the Cyclone, twister, and the whirlwind, those three were fantastic it was really... More
