    Schlitterbahn Water Parks | Texas
    (4 locations)

    Schlitterbahn (a made-up word that combines the German words for
    “slippery” and “road”) is a collection of water parks primarily located in
    Texas that offer a wide variety of attractions. New Braunfels is home to the
    Boogie Bahn, a ride where boogie boarders test their surfing skills against
    water moving 50,000 gallons of water a minute. The beachfront Padre Island
    location features the Schlitterbahn’s innovative Transportainment River
    system which is designed to maximize guests’ time in the water and eliminate
    lines. It’s a river system that connects eight different water attractions.
    The Galveston Island location has been voted as the “World’s Best Indoor
    Water Park” for eight straight years. One feature of the Corpus Christi
    location is the Aqua Veyer conveyer that eliminates the need for guests to
    carry their tubes back up to the highest point of the river so they can come
    back down again. Schlitterbahn operates a fifth location in Kansas City,
