We go to Schlitterbahn atleast once a year. We live this place. My kids always have a great time. I do recommend getting there when they open to get a good spot for your ice chests if you take your own food

This is a water park next to Moody Gardens. Lots of fun things for kids and adults (mostly kids) to do. Water slides, lazy river, swimming areas. Fun for all and never a dull moment.

This was our first visit to the Galveston location. We have visited the New Braunfels park many times. My kids loved Galveston. The park layout isn't as great as New Braunfels and it takes a little walking to get to some of the rides, but...More

All of the Cabanas are located within close proximity of the lazy river, but some are close to the Whitewater River Ride which connects to The Lazy River.
