Such a fun way to cool off in the hot Texas summer sun. Plenty of water, plenty of rides, plenty of memories to be made. Getting their early is highly recommended especially if you don't stay in the park. The earlier you arrive the faster you can hit the most popular rides without a long wait. You can bring in...

I've visited many waterparks, but I truly love Schlitterbahn in New Braunfels. It was amazing! There are two parks! Original Schlitterbahn and New Schlitterbahn. They have a tube ride that you don't ever have to get off of. It takes you places without having to get up. We stayed in a Schlitterbahn house that could hold 16 people. We had... More

The great thing about Schlitterbahn: There's something for everyone. My husband and I are in our 70's, but we found there were plenty of things we could enjoy. The lazy river is wonderful.

Schlitterbahn is so much fun! There are four parks and you must stay a few days to try each of them. You can take a lunch to have there and you can purchase lunch. You won't regret your time spent there. It is relaxing and fun!

If you are thinking to yourself "hmm, is it worth the cost?" Or "I wonder if it's really that that fun?" The answers are Yes and OMG Yeeeessss! Schlitterbahn New Braunfels is hands down the greatest water park known to mankind. There are a total of 3 parks in the complex, all are covered in you ticket, including the shuttle... More

If you're in an area near one of the Schlitterbahn parks, I definitely recommend spending a few days. We have a teenager who wants to walk around and experience everything and an 8-year old who wants to stay in the lazy river all day - there's enough to keep everyone happy for more than one day. I do, however, recommend... More

Great place for a family to visit. Would definitely recommend, the staff was very helpful. Will make another trip the family really enjoyed Schlitterbahn and the town around it.

This was our first time at Schlitterbahn during the Spring break 2017 and we loved every moment of it. Even though only the Blastenhoff section of the water park was open, we spent a good two days in that section and the kids played to their hearts content while we the adults did manage to get our heartbeats up and...

SchlitterbahnP, Manager at Schlitterbahn Waterpark New Braunfels, responded to this review

So happy to hear that you spent part of your spring break at Schlitterbahn. We try not to be disagreeable when responding to our guests, but technically we are even less that "half open" since this early in our season only the Blastenhoff area of the park is open and this section makes up a little over a third of...
