Great variety of rides. Love that the lazy river takes you into almost all the attractions. A cabana is worth renting and the food is good. Service is friendly.

After first going to Schlitterbahn in New Brunsfel we knew we had to go here when we made this trip to SPI. Loved that you didn’t have to stand in line, but not that many different slides. On the small side but fun

This indoor “waterpark” is nothing more than a regular city/community pool! Prices are inflated for the basic water amenities, and kids area. The kids pool area is fantastic, however, paying $25 for a 3yr old to play in 2” of lukewarm water is crazy! At...More

I brought my Girl Scouts to Schlitterbahn for an outing. I t was so much fun. Lots of water rides, different foods at reasonable prices and plenty of areas to lounge at. It's a great place to chill indoors or outdoors.

The park itself is small and the indoor water park is not much to be desired. My kids were very disappointed in the park. By far the Main park in New Braunfels is the best one out there. Sorry.. Schlitterbahn we tried this park two...More
