As Thanksgiving celebrations come to an end, Schlitterbahn Galveston Island will help guests get in the Christmas spirit with Holiday Splash!

Holiday Splash is fast becoming a Schlitterbahn tradition where families and friends can enjoy the indoor waterpark and surf with Santa! Holiday Splash allows guests to enjoy our award-winning indoor waterpark while participating in events full of holiday cheer.

Schlitterbahn Galveston Island’s celebration kicks off with a Toy Drive – part of the Secret Santa Toy Drive! Guests who bring one unwrapped gift for the toy drive ($10 value or greater) will receive one complimentary 2017 Schlitterbahn Galveston Waterpark Indoor ticket – valid March 19 through April 9, 2017. The unwrapped toy can be brought on the day of your visit to the Schlitterbahn guest services window from November 25 – December 20,2016  to receive a 2017 admission ticket.

The celebration would not be complete without everyone’s favorite activity: Surfing with Santa. Guests can join the jolly old elf as he surfs the waves of the Boogie Bahn. Santa will also be available to help the little ones learn to surf in brief one-on-one lessons, providing kids with the unique opportunity to meet the big man himself.

The Schlitterbahn ornament factory will also provide guests with a break from indoor waterpark fun by putting their creative skills to work. The Galveston Island park will also be adding two new activities to its celebration: The “Snow Globe Float” will allow guests to float in tubes through a giant holiday themed snow globe as they conquer the tidal waves of the Torrent River and a Holiday Lights Show that will give guests a spectacular indoor light display animated to Christmas classics. The show will start at the top of the every hour from 11 a.m. through 4 p.m.

Guests interested in participating in the Holiday Splash fun are welcome to purchase a Holiday Grill & Thrill package. For an additional $2.00 on the admission price, this package includes an all-you-can-eat catered picnic lunch and all-day admission into the waterpark.

The Holiday Grill & Thrill admission and meal package is available for online advance purchase only.
