Schlitterbahn, New Braunfels

Water Park · Hidden Gem · Water / Amusement Park
In 1966, along a stretch of a tree-lined, spring-fed river on the edge of the Texas Hill Country, Bob and Billye Henry and their three children began creating what would eventually become the world's first water resort and the nation's most popular summertime waterpark. Since what they were building had never been attempted before, the Henry's relied on their own vision of combining water fun and resort accommodations into a family destination.

  • This is probably the best water park in central Texas and is very popular. The setting is very attractive--just off the river. There a a lot of slides and the kids love the place.  more »
  • It's a great way to spend family time during the hot Texas summers. I buy a season pass every year. You can just go for a few hours after work if you want and avoid some of crowds  more »
