WATERPARK FUN ISN''T JUST FOR SUMMER ANYMORE! Splash into one of the Hottest, Coolest Times in Texas! The newest Schlitterbahn park features uphill water coasters, water slides, kid's playgrounds, whitewater rapids, wave pool, hot tubs, plus the Boogie Bahn surf ride. And the exclusive Transportainment river system makes Schlitterbahn Galveston Island Waterpark the ultimate family destination.

Voted America's #1 Indoor Waterpark!

Schlitterbahn Galveston Island Waterpark is also the world's first convertible waterpark and is the third waterpark in the Schlitterbahn family of Texas parks. The summer season offer more than 32 family-friendly attractions.

Following the tradition of ride innovation that Schlitterbahn is known for, the new Galveston Island park is the first convertible waterpark with an entire area that can be opened or closed for indoor / outdoor year-round operation. During the Heated Indoor Season, the Wasserfest area is converted to an indoor waterpark and features a dozen heated attractions. (The water and air are always in the 80s!)
