This was an awesome water park for when it is cold outside. It is indoor during the colder weather and then turns out door when it gets hot. It has a great kids area but the lazy river is defiantly not lazy so don't go on it with young children or weak swimmers.

Hello, Thanks for the comments and glad everyone had an awesome visit at Schlitterbahn Galveston Island Waterpark. Our indoor waterpark is different from others and is consistently ranked as one of the best in the world. We introduced the convertible technology to the indoor waterpark industry, since Galveston is normally able to experience warmer year-round temperatures. This allows us to... More

Overall was a great experience aside from a really rude lifeguard in the toddlers section whom made my daughters scared to even enjoy themselves.

Hello, Thank you for visiting Schlitterbahn Galveston Island Waterpark with your family. We’re sad to hear of your unpleasant experience that you had while visiting at the kid’s pool. The events that occurred are obviously not the experiences we want our guests to have when they visit. Our employees are trained to be courteous and provide exceptional guest service. We... More

It was a cold, rainy March day and we weren't sure what to expect but we spent 5 hours there and had a blast! The water was perfectly warmer in the kiddie area and the "lazy river" - more torrential - was scarier than we expected at first but we spent about 2 hours on it all together and had... More

It was cold when we went so only a few rides were open. Still had a blast! The water was cold but they had a jacuzzi area with the bar in it. Wave pool was very fun!

If you are wanting to stay away from the beach and enjoy a chlorine pool fun day this is the place for you! The park is small and we only stayed half the day. We ended up just going back to the beach so we wouldn't be so confined to small picnic tables. Your probably could do everything in 3... More

This wasn't exactly what we expected. We're used to indoor waterparks in the midwest, where everything is enclosed in one giant "room," towels are provided and it's not freezing cold! This indoor park has heaters along the walkways, but it's chilly. It was pouring rain the day we went and basically raining inside too because there is not a permanent... More
