I am being gifted tickets to the park to share this information with you all.
One of the best parts of living in sunny south Texas is the Schlitterbahn Waterpark! It gets hot here-so hot! My children have been asking to go to Schlitterbahn since we crossed the Texas state line. I have been doing my research and trying to find the best ticket prices and I can’t wait to share what I have learned.
It’s The Year of Anniversaries!
World’s Most Award Winning Uphill Water Coaster, The Master Blaster, turns 20: The Schlitterbahn New Braunfels park is home to a guest favorite, the world famous Master Blaster. Built in 1996, this 2.5 minute ride is over 65 feet tall and sends guests on an exhilarating ride down two, 3 story drops. It is easily the most iconic uphill water coaster in the world. Does your family have any fun memories of riding the Master Blaster?
15 year anniversary of the opening of the Schlitterbahn South Padre Island Waterpark: Built in 2001, this park is home to our Transportainment River system that is designed to maximize time in the water and eliminate lines. This river system connects eight attractions that feature rapids, chutes, and gentle currents. We truly believe that when you come to the beach, you should just be able to sit back and enjoy your tube ride while you tan.
10 year anniversary of the opening of the Schlitterbahn Galveston Island Waterpark: Built in 2006, this waterpark is located on historical Galveston Island and has been voted as the World’s Best Indoor Waterpark for 8 straight years. This park features more than 33 attractions and a mile long Transportainment River system. To celebrate its 10 year anniversary, Galveston will be unveiling a new ride, which will be the world’s tallest water coaster – MASSIV!
What’s a Water Coaster? A water coaster is a water ride that has multiple uphill sections, uses a ride vehicle (boat, tube, or raft), and has other ride elements (spirals, fish ladders, water screens, etc.) to deliver a thrilling and fun filled ride.
Waterpark Tips for Frugal Moms Taking kids to a waterpark can be a lot easier – and you can be frugal too. Schlitterbahn saves mom’s budget by offering free parking, free life jackets, and families can bring in an ice chest full of food! Food prices inside the park are reasonable and healthy options abound. We have some fun blog posts about this topic here that you can draw from or link to.
Toddlers and Tweens in Tow: Schlitterbahn is designed to have something for every age – inland surfing on the Boogie Bahn is very doable with a lesson or two, splash zones are designed to be safe for the littlest guests. With free life jackets and kids tubes even cautious moms can feel safe. We have a fun post on this here.
Making Memories Schlitterbahn has been part of hundreds of thousands of great memories for guests – What are your favorite memories at the park?
Waterpark Survival Tips Here’s three tips you can share with your readers – do you have any tips from past experiences to share? 1. Swim shoes or flip flops – Schlitterbahn parks are among the largest in the nation, and that means that invariably there will be some hot spots without shade or outdoor carpet. We always recommend wearing some sort of water worthy shoe! 2. Sunscreen – Water rides remove the best in sunscreen. Apply, ride, repeat. 3. Pack a lunch – Schlitterbahn allows ice chests, but no glass or alcohol. Make sure to pack some favorites but leave room for park specialties like funnel cakes and turkey legs!
