It was a challenge to find a spot in the shade and then we had to walk on scorching hot pavement to get to any water attractions. I highly recommend some type of water shoes, especially if you have small children, to protect from burning your feet. Being able to take a cooler in was nice. We spent most of... More

Being locals to the Kansas City area, we decided to do a family day trip and visit Schlitterbahn. The overall experience was "ok". There were parts that were fun, but other parts that weren't so much. Most stuff, as other places like this were pretty expensive. Food and drinks were very pricey. We weren't sure if coolers were allowed to... More

It needed something more to add excitement, like colors or festive scenery. If I used 1 word to describe this place it would be BASIC!

This place seems like it was designed by people in an office 1000 miles away. I imagine it was fun to come up with the plan but when it came time to execute their plan it was a complete failure. The layout is so convoluted. You have to walk so far before you get anywhere. You're paraded through the gift... More

This has become our favorite place to play in water. One never has to get out of the water/tube if they choose not to. The water carries you from place to place. Fun for small children also with two areas for little ones.

Great fun. Good place to let loose with friends. Incident on the slide is a tragedy but the rest of the park was great

Great place to spend the day. A perk is they do not charge for parking. Kansas gets extremely hot and sunny so if you can, get there early to stake out chairs with shade. The swim up bar is great for the adults but 2 bartenders always seem to be overwhelmed. My son absolutely loved the lazy river and would... More

Every year we make it our last hoorah to go to Schlitterbahn Waterpark before the kids start school, this year was no exception. We purchased a cabana for our visit which was amazing, the staff was friendly and helpful, we then proceeded to lock our stuff up and enjoy the day. With 2 younger children the bottom 2 seater rafts... More

This place was supposed to have shopping centers and tree house hotel rooms when they originally started building. What a huge disappointment. We get bored here. Not worth the price.
