Water Parks - 140+ Acres of Water Recreation

Schlitterbahn Waterpark & Resort - New Braunfels


New Braunfels is home to one of the most popular water parks in Texas (and the world)! Schlitterbahn New Braunfels is the award-winning original Schlitterbahn water park resort! Located just a stone's throw from downtown New Braunfels, Schlitterbahn grew out of the spring-fed Comal River and German heritage of the Hill Country. With an eclectic resort and two distinct waterpark experiences, it's easy to see why New Braunfels is Schlitterbahn's flagship location. The park boasts 51 attractions, including uphill water coasters, wave pools, lazy rivers, kids' play areas, and speed slides.

Whether you prefer splashing in the pool or riding raging river rides, you're sure to find fun for the entire family here. Centrally located near San Antonio and Austin, the "Bahn" offers the convenience of a day trip with the escape of a full-fledged Texas family vacation. 

Don't just play for the day, come stay! Choose from numerous family-friendly vacation homes or The Resort at Schlitterbahn to stay close to all the action. When you book an overnight stay at one of Schlitterbahn's accommodations between May and September, waterpark admission is included.
