Schlitterbahn New Braunfels is the original water park resort. Deep in the heart of central Texas, Schlitterbahn grew out of the spring fed river and German heritage of the Hill Country. With an eclectic resort, and two distinct waterpark experiences with 51 attractions over 70 acres, it’s easy to see why New Braunfels is Schlitterbahn’s flagship location.
At the center of Schlitterbahn there are miles of rivers. The waterpark started on the banks of the Comal River. Tube chutes, rides, tube slides, and pools use spring fed river water that always stays a cool 72 degrees and flows right back into the river. Ride our famous black tubes for hours in the Original Section featuring the iconic castle. Have a family picnic* at one of the shaded picnic tables found all around the park. Of course, rivers are only the beginning. Only a short tram ride away within the Blastenhoff and Surfenburg sections, visitors to New Braunfels can ride a continuous wave on the Boogie Bahn, fly high on the Sky Coaster, tube on the Torrent wave river, and get rocketed uphill on the Master Blaster Water Coaster.
The resort has become a summer vacation destination for many families. With seven distinct accommodation styles and room types ranging from a basic hotel room to a seven-room vacation home, Schlitterbahn’s resort is ready to host your family. Stay during the waterpark season and Stay & Play with waterpark admission included in your stay. Or stay any time of year during your trip to New Braunfels and the Texas Hill Country for a great Getaway.
