Fun way to spend the day hanging out in the lazy rivers or riding the water rides. Be sure and wear water shoes for the pavement gets awful hot and the lines tend to be long.

So much fun. Free parking. Nice and helpful employees. Great lazy/torrent river... Just make sure you wear sunscreen! It takes just a few minutes to put on and saves yourself a headache (or should I say "bodyache") later on.

The kiddy part of the waterpark is great for the little guys and girls. There are a lot of things to hold their attention. From the slides to seeing who can beat each other back to the line. The only thing is the big kids try to come in there. HOWEVER, the park staff is EXCELLENT in making them get... More

We're from Midwest and are familiar with water parks at Wisconsin Dells. Schlitterbahn did not disappoint!

We had a great time at the park over Easter weekend. Not crowded but not quite warm enough yet to be wet all day. The lazy river is awesome as are most of the attractions. Food was good for regular burgers, hot dogs, etc. The big problem was the new Massiv ride. Tallest water coaster in the world. My girlfriend... More

This was an awesome water park for when it is cold outside. It is indoor during the colder weather and then turns out door when it gets hot. It has a great kids area but the lazy river is defiantly not lazy so don't go on it with young children or weak swimmers.

Hello, Thanks for the comments and glad everyone had an awesome visit at Schlitterbahn Galveston Island Waterpark. Our indoor waterpark is different from others and is consistently ranked as one of the best in the world. We introduced the convertible technology to the indoor waterpark industry, since Galveston is normally able to experience warmer year-round temperatures. This allows us to... More

Overall was a great experience aside from a really rude lifeguard in the toddlers section whom made my daughters scared to even enjoy themselves.
