Many of the rides at Schlitterbahn are very relaxing. The cold river water makes for a great summer vacation spot. Fast passes are a must have as some of the lines are crazy long.

The best water park that I have been to. Kids love it, also adults. Lots of different rides (for all ages) and lots of fun, come together in this water park. If you can enjoy without problem, just wear water shoes, its so helpful.

I've lived in New Braunfels for 33 years. Here is my take on Schlitterbahn. It's a fun place for families or singles. It is in two sections so if you get tired of one you can go to another via shuttle. Lots and lots of different rides ranging from just floating to wild ones. There are sections in both parks...

I make it a point to invest in season passes for my entire family year after year. This place offers plenty of shade, bring your own food, (a must for that busy mom) and of course attraction for all ages. Every life guard is professionally trained and has hours of continuing education per year. I can not rave on their... More

This is by far the best waterpark I've ever visited, and I've been to many. It is huge and there is so much to do. The lazy river is just amazing and goes on and on forever. And the wave pool is so much fun. There's plenty of chairs and tables to put your belongings, and you can bring your... More

There is something for everyone at Schlitterbahn New Braunfels! Young and old. Our favorite ride was The Falls. This is one massive lazy river with several different features. You can circle the whole east side (new side) of the park and never have to get out of your tube. There are rapids and slow parts. This was great for our... More

As advertised, best Waterpark in the world! Rides for all from 2-90! Food can be bought or brought! Family can enjoy the day for low cost if they bring their food and drink! Don't forget the sunscreen!

We visited the Schlitterbahn waterpark in September. Unfortunately the slogan "World's best waterpark" is not correct in my opinion. Every waterpark in Florida is way better and mostly less crowded. However there are some cool slides and the lazy river is just awesome! I would come back once. Maybe not tomorrow but next year.
