WaterPark,SchlitterBahn

Schlitterbahn (New Braunfels, TX)


Schlitterbahn places at or near the top of almost every list of top water parks, and for good reason. Conveniently located outside of San Antonio, and only a short drive from Austin, Schlitterbahn features an amazing assortment of aquatic attractions for all ages. The biggest star: the "Master Blaster," a long, twisting water coaster with as many uphill sections as down. (Open May through mid-September)
