The heart of the 370-acre resort is a sprawling 40-acre water park. The impressive size allows the innovative company to stock the park with all kinds of water rides and attractions. Like two of its Texas parks, guests are able to float among attractions in tubes instead of waiting in lines. Schlitterbahn says that when the project is completed, its water tube Transpotainment system will also connect riders to the resort's hotels, restaurants, stores, and other venues.
Bucking industry trends, Schlitterbahn offers many complimentary services, including free parking, free water tubes, and free life jackets. Also, the park allows thrifty guests to bring their own food.
Guests can enjoy water park fun year round when Schlitterbahn Vacation Village encloses some of its water attractions in a future building phase. Also, Schlitterbahn has plans to create a true destination resort by introducing a hotel resort, a shopping and dining complex, and other entertainment options.
Admission InfoReduced prices for children (ages 3 to 11) and seniors (55 and older). 2 and under are free. Season passes are available.

New for 2013:
Schlitterbahn invented the Master Blaster and will introduce the next generation version that will be both the world's tallest and fastest water coaster. At the time this was published, the park hadn't confirmed the stats, but it revealed that it will combine the the extreme thrills of a speed slide with the rush of a water coaster. Woo-hoo!
