Its a good family value given the parking is free and they still allow you to bring in your own ice chest. The Schlitterbahn parks is the only parks I spend the day and leave... read more

Went during a week day Had purchased tickets online but then you have to convert them to a wrist band. The cashier was either new or didn't know what was going on. We wasted about 45 mins while waiting for the manager to eventually sort it out. The original location was very run down for all the money they were... More

Got to visit with the family. Such a big park we didn't get to visit all the rides. Wear your water shoes, lots of walking involved! Every second is worth it, the entire family enjoyed it

My 1 year old LOVES it. The older part of our group LOVES it and the teens LOVES it. Personally my favorite part is that the kids park isn't too separated that me and my husband or brother could switch off watching the baby play in the kiddy pool and you could go on the big rides and still be...

The day we went it was raining. But I had already bought my tickets and rented a cabana. When we got there it had not been really bizzy since the weather was not so great. The lines were not long, I think we waited the most was about 45 minutes. The lazy river was great. My kids were able to... More

We heard a lot about how great this place is and we love water parks. We found it to be woefully understaffed and overcrowded. Their blast pass thing just kills everyone. We waited over 1 1/2 hours for a mediocre slide that lasted 30 seconds. Watching the teenagers run the place you could see soooo many inefficiencies. Not enough rafts... More

We go every year and it never disappoints. Great for the entire family. Very expensive to stay in the park so we typically stay somewhere else. Lots of hotels available within a short distance. You can bring in coolers but it looks like people just leave the coolers and their things on picnic tables all day. I don't feel comfortable... More

I have been going here for years for personal & business. For business it is a huge contrast to the daily grind & believe it or not, a nice team building event. There is something for everyone & you don't leave disappointment. It's also fun to tell your family, you're going to work in your swimsuit! Pros: Bring your own... More

As usual we had a blast at Schlitterbahn. We went with friends and family. Customer service was outstanding. Part of the park was closed and Marty at Customer Service could not have been more helful with getting us a discount on the full price online tickets we had. I highly recommend Schlitterbahn!!!
