Schlitterbahn Waterpark

Unlike most water parks, Schlitterbahn is open almost year-round. The operational calendar is divided into two sessions: summer and indoor heated. Featuring more than 30 attractions, Schlitterbahn is home to unique water rides such as Dragon Blaster, essentially a water roller coaster, and Whitewater River and Aquaveyer, which turns the traditional lazy river into a whitewater rafting adventure. In addition, the park includes several play areas that cater to younger guests, such as Treasure Island Kids' Play Area & Pool and Wasserfest Kids' Area.
