It may have kind of a funny name, but Schlitterbahn
in New Braunfels, Texas is highly regarded as one of the pioneers and leaders in the water park industry. Its massive park is loaded with innovative and crowd-pleasing attractions.
The Falls offers 3,600 feet of lazy (and not all that lazy) river action. Among its unique features is what Schlitterbahn dubs an AquaVeyer, a conveyor belt that transports the ride's inner tubes (along with its passengers) back to the loading station where they can choose to take another spin.
The Theme Parks Guide says:
The Falls is another unique offering from Schlitterbahn, and its legions of fans rallied to support the park. But another highly unique attraction, 360Rush, also received tons of votes, and offered tough competition in what shaped up as a two-ride battle for the Readers' Choice Award. Both attractions, which look wildly fun and showcase the industry's ingenuity, deserve accolades.

- Constrictor at Wet 'n' Wild Phoenix
- Summit Tower at Calypso Waterpark
- La Chute at Jay Peak Indoor Water Park
