  • A very beautiful park we liked the staff is super attentive, they allow you to get food and drinks without problem, the input 11 and 17 respectively, you can buy a package with towel or beverage fill you, we went in October and really we do not find many people, minimum of coma in the slides and pool or river waves is great. There are games for children, lockers for rent, a carousel and a set of balls that works with air. In general the Park does not have many games but there are no many people gives you the option to hop a few what several times.

  • We have never been to any other Schlitterbahn parks but this one was perfect for our family, my 9 and 10 year old loved the different attractions and we spent a great day there! We went on a Saturday ...  more »

  • We took our 5 and 6 year grandkids. We had the most amazing fun. The park lends itself to getting in on the fun with the kids. Also the close proximity of everything made it feisable for us the adults and the children to get around. Park is very well planned in design and safety for kids. It is clean, and beautifully landscaped. I also like the fact we can bring in ice chests with food and drinks. The employees also treat you with the utmost respect. We had a great time, well worth the money, next year I'm getting season passes! Thank you Schlitterbahn!
  • I really like this park. It's very clean and a lot of fun. The food is over priced, but you are allowed to bring in your own food and drinks. There are even some BBQ pits in certain places around the park. Most of the water slides are accessible from the lazy river, and the children's play area is really fun. If you need to get out of the sun for a bit, there is an indoor section with its own lazy river and a couple of water slides.
  • Great water park for a summer weekend getaway. We have been visiting Schlitterbahn SPI for a number of years now. The park itself is becoming a little dated in new ride selection, but the best part for me is the continuous river. You can float on the river for hours at a time, simply awesome!
  • It was OK but was way over praised and the ticket prices where to high. For example I could go to Holiday Word and for half the price get a water park with roughly the same amount of slides and also a theme park on top that. While at Schlitterbahn it costs 50 buck for 10 rides and a kids section. So overall the rides they did have are good but not to good for the money
  • The price was very high for such little there was to offer. Two of the rides were shut down, and those that were running kept getting stopped due to people getting stuck. Also, this isn't a place that's real friendly for overweight people as the rides are not enjoyable for those overweight. Also, there really was no weight limit signs posted about rides except for the children's body slides. A plus is that you can bring in your own cooler (without glass). The bathrooms at the main entrance were also not in good condition. Overall it was a good getaway from the beach, but I wasn't greatly impressed with the experience.
