We spent all day here. The rides are fun, however to ride any of the main ride it must be accessed via the river ride. Then I waited over 1hr to ride the Storm Chaser. There was almost no shade while you waited.More

Thanks for visiting and yes, Saturdays are the busiest day of the week and while the "queue" lines are shaded for the most part and accessible directly from the river system for most rides (you don't have to get out of your tube), waits can...More

We had a great day at this water park. It was clean and appeared well maintained, although one slide wasn't running while we were there. Perhaps because it was a Monday, it was not crowded.More

We were at the park at opening time on a Saturday in June. By 1:00 pm, the park was over crowded and the most popular rides were jammed up, with people pushing and shoving, trying to get into position. Not fun with young children.More

All the rides are entered through the lazy river, and be prepared for the long lines, if you have been to other Schlitterbahn water parks, this will not impress you at all.

Other than being a little pricey, we all really enjoyed this waterpark!! Getting to wait in line for the rides while sitting in the water in your tube was absolutely wonderful!More

This waterpark was clean and enjoyable. I loved the outdoor park and the tube rides that branched off of the lazy river. Lots to do for the little ones. We spent two full days at the water park and had a great time.

We think this is the best of the Schlitterbaums because of the surf machine and the beach access. Good park for kids for sure.More

Kids and adults love Schlitterbahn. We love the "lazy river" and tube access to the water slides. This park handles crowds well. Get a seasons pass if you want to visit 3 or more times during the summer. Well worth it.More
