In the park's 10th anniversary season, we visited for probably our 5th or 6th time. This is the first time that we've visited this late in the year (August 27), and it was wonderful! The heat wasn't oppressive, the park wasn't crowded, and the gift shop was having an end of season sale. The experience was as enjoyable as ever,... More

We loved schilliterbahn galveston! The indoor part of the park was perfect for my 8 month old daughter. The lazy river is so much fun to get on with no lines and with the whole family. It was definitely a must go since my sister in law lives in houston and we all got to go together, Looking forward to... More

We read a number of reviews on various sources before going since every water park seems to have its issues. In this case, one person's frustration was our education. We had purchased tickets in advance, but in hearing that you needed to get a wristband to get in, I stopped by the building across the street from the park and... More

We had a great time here. Spent half a day on the slides and river rides. You can take in coolers for your drinks and food and I would advise this to save money. The concession stand prices are very high. Skip the eagle flight zip line. It is $15 per person and takes about 30 seconds to zip a... More

I hosted a group of teens at Schlitterbahn in Galveston...and we all had a great time! We were able to picnic with our own food (fruits, sandwiches, drinks, etc;) which helped with costs...and just enjoy our stay! Such fun!!!

Quick trip before school. We loved the private cabanas. Pricey but helpful when you want a covered stop with comfortable chairs away from the crowd. It comes with wait staff. Drink service was fine. Food service was terrible. Took over 45 min to get fruit. The park was very clean and plenty of workers throughout the park. I would go... More

Always a fun experience at the water park. Lots of choices for rides. Good food variety. Bring whatever you need instead of buying at the park as the park shops can be quite expensive.

You can spend an entire day with your family and friends at Schlitterbahn. Lots of laughter, splashing and maneuvering through the water ways. The high slides are a blast - scarey at first, but a blast! This is a must during the summer.
