Schlitterbahn's 65-acre waterpark and resort complex features more than 40 rides and family activities in six areas, including: three uphill water coasters, nine tube chutes, 17 water slides, the Boogie Bahn bodyboarding ride, a family wave pool, five swimming pools, five hot tubs, seven children's water playgrounds, water and sand volleyball courts, five gift shops, a pizza arcade and 20 refreshment centers.
Schlitterbahn Waterpark Resort is the most popular summertime waterpark in the United States, attracting more visitors than any other seasonal waterpark during its late-April to mid-September season.* The park is located on the banks of the spring-fed Comal River in New Braunfels, between San Antonio and Austin, in south central Texas.
Schlitterbahn was an early pioneer in promoting the waterpark resort concept which is now popular around the world. Today Schlitterbahn Waterpark Resort has 218 units on or adjacent to the park grounds. The rooms are very popular during the summer, so early reservations are recommended. Guests of Schlitterbahn Resort receive a 20 percent discount on waterpark admission.
The unique character of the park has led amusement park fans to vote Schlitterbahn "America's Best Waterpark" seven years in a row. The park's six-story Master Blaster® uphill water coaster has been voted "America's Best Waterpark Ride" again and again. For the past two years, the park was also voted "America's Most Beautiful Waterpark."
Four factors set the original Schlitterbahn apart from other waterparks:
► Natural riverfront setting – towering trees and the beautiful Comal River
► Unique mix of attractions – from miles of tube chutes to high-tech water coasters
► Family friendly atmosphere – rides for all ages, picnics welcome, free parking
► Resort rooms on the park grounds – everything from motel rooms to town homes.
