Schlitterbahn Galveston Island Waterpark is a 26-acre oasis of thrilling waterpark adventures. The third waterpark in the Schlitterbahn family of parks features more than 30 attractions designed in the Schlitterbahn tradition of ride innovation. The park also features the next generation of the award-winning Transportainment® river system that combines three unique rivers into one endless floating adventure.

Schlitterbahn Galveston Island Waterpark is not only an excellent and thrilling destination for summer fun; it also opens early for Spring Break and stays open late through December. How do they do it? Convertible technology! The Wasserfest area of Schlitterbahn Galveston Island Waterpark, voted the World's Best Indoor Waterpark, transforms to create an indoor waterpark retreat for guests all-year-long.

The 70,000 square-foot indoor waterpark offers more than a dozen heated water adventures including four tube slides, three speed slides, three kids' activity areas containing a variety of children's water elements and pint-sized slides, a secluded beach, a heated pool, a man-made surfing wave, and the Torrent® tidal wave river.

The Soaring Eagle
Want a bird's eye view while soaring over the park!? For a small charge, waterpark guests can glide above the park, flying more than 100 feet in the air, on a two-person gondola for 1/4 of a mile. It is the best way to take your waterpark experience to new heights!

Great Food Options
Even though you may bring your own picnic to Schlitterbahn Galveston Island Waterpark, the park also boasts a wide variety of delicious foods. The Funnel Cake Factory provides a list of creative concoctions for our sweet tooth swimmers, like red velvet, cookies n' cream and loaded funnel cakes. Guests looking for something more savory get their fill at BBQ Haus with BBQ Nachos and slow smoked BBQ brisket, pork and chicken. The Chicken Bacon Ranch Pizza at Pointe Pizza is a must for all, and a beer served up at a chilling 29 degrees at Blizzard Bar is always refreshing for adult guests.
