Schlitterbahn is great to go the last weekend its open in January, it not crowded, so you can ride everything multiple times, half of the park is indoors, the only problem is sometimes its cold, last year was perfect, plus now they have one of the best, newest water rides out there MASSIV is the World's Tallest Water Coaster.

Had a great time with a toddler and young child. Bring your own food and drinks in a cooler to save money. Lockers are available for rent, and alcohol is available on site for adults.

This is a review of the food we had there, not the water rides. The food was barely edible. I'm not sure it was thoroughly cooked. We might have said something to the staff, but they were over-worked and had a hard time getting our order out in a timely way. If you go to Schlitterbahn, take your own food!

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
