Schlitterbahn Park

Schlitterbahn Waterpark Resort in New Braunfels has over 3 miles of tubing adventures, 7 children’s water playgrounds, 17 water slides, the world’s first surfing machine, and 3 uphill water coasters spread over 65 acres of fun!

Schlitterbahn is the largest water park in Texas and that is saying something. In German, the word Schlitterbahn means slippery road. The number of rather interesting water slides at Schlitterbahn certainly live up to that reputation.

Wherever you happen to be in Texas, you will likely find a Schlitterbahn near you. There is one at South Padre, another at New Braunfels and the newest location is in beautiful Galveston.

The two parts of the Schlitterbahn Waterpark are separated by several city blocks with free parking available at both locations and a free shuttle between the two areas. Schlitterbahn East is further divided into two themed areas; Surfenburg, built in 1991, and Blastenhoff, built in 1996.

In 1994, Schlitterbahn opened the first ever uphill water ride, known as the Dragon Blaster. Since then, they have added several other uphill water coasters, the Master Blaster and the Family Blaster. The Master Blaster in particular has often been voted as the best water ride in the US by travel publications.
