As a thank you to military and first responders, all Schlitterbahn Waterparks are holding our third annual American Heroes Week with FREE admission to the New Braunfels, Galveston, South Padre Island, Corpus Christi, and Kansas City parks.

Members of the military (both active duty and retired), police, firefighters and EMTs will be welcomed at Schlitterbahn Waterparks with FREE admission. It’s a tribute to the hard working first responders and members of the armed forces who dedicate their lives to the safety and freedoms of everyone in their community. Of course, it’s much more fun to visit with family, so in addition to the free ticket, the spouses and dependents of our American Heroes are welcome at a deep discount – 50% off the gate price. Keep in mind Texas parks will have varying hours and attractions open during American Heroes week, make sure to check out for our operating schedules.

American Heroes Week dates at the Schlitterbahn New Braunfels, South Padre Island and Galveston parks are May 28 – June 3, 2018.
Schlitterbahn Corpus Christi will host the event June 4 – 10, 2018. 
Schlitterbahn Kansas City will honor American Heroes every weekend throughout the month of June.

In order to attend Schlitterbahn during our American Heroes celebration, first responders and members of the military need to show their military ID or proof of employment at the waterpark ticket booths. Discounted tickets for spouses and dependents are available at the ticket booth. Invited members of military include active duty, retirees, veterans, reservists and Department of Defense.

Many forms of ID are acceptable and some rules apply, here is a detailed FAQ for more information. Additional discounts are available for lodging at The Resort at Schlitterbahn in New Braunfels. Visit for details.
