  • While the cost of admission is pricey discounts are available. And where else can you bring your own food and beverages? Eating at an amusement park for a family of four can easily top $125 if you are...  more »
  • Just to get on the pier and walk you have to pay whether you ride anything or not. Very few rides for the price. Not recommended. Save your money for something else.  more »
  • As we passed this place on the way to the Moody Gardens, we decided to take a short visit to this place but we didn't do swimming etc. as we didn't have our swimsuit with us. We will be back next time  more »

  • Purchased Schlitterbahn season passes for the family and practically lived there all summer. Packed lunch and snacks in a cooler and stayed all day long. I worried about theft because I never purchased a locker but not one incident all season! My only complaint is regarding the unlimited drink refills I purchased, the soda fountain machines were constantly empty...EVERY DAY! I finally got smart and began bringing our own drinks but my family drinks a lot so it really added quite a bit more weight to the load i had to haul to and ftom the parking lot. Do not purchase the drink passes, it's a waste.
  • I been here twice this year and I loved it. The best is you get to take your own cooler with food. Lines for the water slides may be long but it's all worth it.
  • I love the atmosphere of the park, everyone is there to have fun and it Is never excessively crowded to point of being uncomfortable. Lazy river is calming and fun with wave machine constantly launching guests forward and giving everyone a good jump. Rides are extremely fun and provide a burst of adrenaline. Lines are kind of long, expect to wait 10 minutes plus for the biggest and funnest rides. Tubes are easy to acquire with patience. Lockers have been made electronic so no hassle of losing a locker key in the water!!
  • My family spend all day from open to close and never ran out if things to do!! There is something for everyone. They offer a variety of foods but you are also allowed to bring in your own. It wasn't overly crowded (we went August 17th) and was a ton of fun!! We are already planning our next trip back.
  • Best water-park experience! My toddler can do so much here, versus Typhoon where he isn't even allowed to ride slides in kids area. The facilities are clean and there are attentive life guards all around.
