Compared to most other lookalike water parks, Schlitterbahn has lots of quirky charm, particularly in the original part of the resort. As you click through the images, keep in mind that I visited near the beginning of the season, and parts of the park were not open to guests including The Falls (a massive tubing ride) and the entire original area. I did get to tour the whole resort, however, and I have some interesting photos of water slides and other attractions without guests -- or water.
The photo above is of the Blastenhoff tower in one of the newer sections of the resort. On the blue track and tubes, a pair of riders are about to blast off in the Master Blaster water coaster. Schlitterbahn's owners developed the uphill water coaster concept and sell the rides to other water parks. At the base of the tower is The Torrent, a not-really-lazy river that includes strong jets of water to create waves and fast currents.
