ABOUT SCHLITTERBAHN NEW BRAUNFELS
Four Adventures – One Waterpark
Any single section of Schlitterbahn is as large as most regional waterparks – but with four areas to choose from, guests can enjoy a wild variety of water themed attractions in this world class water theme park. Every section contains a swim-up bar, children’s area, and a unique signature attraction. Free Parking and Picnics: At Schlitterbahn parking is free for everyone. Schlitterbahn guests can bring a picnic from home (no glass or alcohol please) and there is plenty of seating (700 picnic tables). There is no charge for tubes, life vests, or boogie boards.
The Original Schlitterbahn: Home to the signature Schlitterbahn Castle, this section of the park uses spring-fed water from the Comal River. Nestled beneath a beautiful canopy of trees, this section of the park has eight tube chutes, seven kids’ play areas, a wave pool, and swim-up bars with heated pools. On the wild side: the Down Hill Racer and the Soda Straws. On the mild side: the Raging River and the Congo.
Surfenburg: Named for the world’s first surfing wave invented 28 years ago, the Boogie Bahn, Surfenburg is also home to the first uphill water coaster, The Dragon’s Revenge – invented 25 years ago. Also in Surfenburg: the Kristal River which circles Squirt’n Sliden, a giant kids’ play area.
Blastenhoff: The most award-winning attraction in Schlitterbahn history, the Master Blaster, is located in this section. Using patented water injection technology, the Master Blaster starts at the top of a six-story tower in Blastenhoff. (Two other rides also take off from the same tower.) Surrounding the “Blast Tower” is the Torrent Wave River – which combines an endless river with a wave pool for unlimited fun.
Tubenbach: Tubenbach features the award-winning ride The Falls, the world’s longest tubing adventure (voted number one by our fans in 2018). The Tubenbach area features several no-wait attractions and beaches allowing park guests to enjoy the rides without standing in line. Also, several of the Tubenbach attractions are interconnected through an innovative Transportainment® river, which allows guests to float their way throughout the Tubenbach area.
Overall, Schlitterbahn New Braunfels has four times the rides and attractions of any waterpark within 200 miles, and twice the number of attractions of any waterpark within 500 miles. Our naturally landscaped park with hundred-year-old oak, cedar, and cypress trees creates a completely different experience from the typical “hard-scaped” waterparks. We call those hard waterparks “stairs, cement, and slides” versus Schlitterbahn’s rivers, trees, and rides.
The original lodging and waterpark combo, the Resort at Schlitterbahn is over 50 years old (older than the waterpark) and has the most varied room types of any of the three Schlitterbahn resort properties. Nestled along the banks of the Comal River, the Resort has a distinct Texas Hill Country style with vacation homes, traditional hotel rooms, upscale Tree Hauses and lofts, as well as condominium style lodging available year round.
