The water coasters are too short (feels like 1 mllisecond). There is no actual swimming pool if you would like to swim. There is only on narrow wade pool with other people's feet in your face. You have to find your own innertube The price...More

While the cost of admission is pricey discounts are available. And where else can you bring your own food and beverages? Eating at an amusement park for a family of four can easily top $125 if you are there for the day and that alone...More

Just to get on the pier and walk you have to pay whether you ride anything or not. Very few rides for the price. Not recommended. Save your money for something else.

As we passed this place on the way to the Moody Gardens, we decided to take a short visit to this place but we didn't do swimming etc. as we didn't have our swimsuit with us. We will be back next time

Went to Schlitterbahn in Galveston in October 2016. Some of the attractions(part of the lazy river too) were closed. But was still a lot of fun for kids and adults. You are allowed to bring you food, which is great! Search google for discounts.More
