The Schlitterbahn Water Parks and Resorts have five destinations with a wealth of activities and waterslides. Not only do the parks cater to toddlers, kids, teenagers and young adults, but they even have activities for a more mature crowd like golfing and paddleboarding, plus plenty of delicious bars and restaurants to choose from. When parking is free and families can bring coolers in the park from home at no additional cost, it’s a family summertime no-brainer.

New Braunfels was the first of the five water parks to open and is the largest one. It is said to be the best for families and large parties due to the relaxing nature of the many lazy rivers, heated pools, beaches and kiddie coves. The water park has 42 rides, which include water chutes, water coasters and everything in between. There is a height requirement for some rides. They also have horseback riding, winery tours, and basketball and tennis courts.

Schlitterbahn New Braunfels has a couple of lodging options depending on the size of the group. The Wasser Haus & Lodge is located on the Comal River a short walk to the Blastenhoff section of the water park. Choose between a standard one-bedroom, one-bedroom suite and four-bedroom with private balcony overlooking the Comal River. If the group is really large, the Tuben Haus can accommodate up to 23 people with five bedrooms and three full bathrooms. The SchlitterStein Lofts are a little more upscale and overlook the Comal River. Each two-bedroom, two-bath loft accommodates up to six people and has a private balcony and views of the Surfenburg area of Schlitterbahn.
