World’s Tallest Uphill Water Coaster Named Best New Water Park Ride of 2016
MASSIV, named the best new waterpark ride in the world by theme park enthusiasts, was declared by Guinness World Records as the tallest Water Coaster in the World. At 81 feet, 6 and ¾ inches tall, MASSIV packs in the thrills with multiple uphill and sections, a translucent turn, and first ever triple drop finale. Built to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Galveston park, it’s already a fan favorite. Why MASSIV? It’s the German word for massive and is pronounced “mass – EVE.”

Schlitterbahn’s commitment to the environment is long standing. From the way the original park was designed to flow among trees, to the commitment to water conservation (98% of the water is recycled through filtration), to maintaining recycling containers throughout the parks, Schlitterbahn believes in sustainability. The development team, which builds our new parks and attractions at Schlitterbahn, constantly looks for ways to reduce, reuse, and recycle.
Schlitterbahn Galveston’s premium two-story cabanas, which were invented at our waterpark, create a unique and relaxing experience. Guests enjoy a common gathering area for their party and experience private seating, lounge chairs, catering, tableside service, dedicated lockers, and hammocks – these cabanas can also accommodate regular and large groups.
Great food options!
