about Schlitterbahn New Braunfels Waterpark Resort:
Jump in anywhere! The Schlitterbahn Waterpark's 65-acre resort complex features more than 40 rides and family activities in six areas, including three uphill water coasters, nine tube chutes, 17 water slides, the Boogie Bahn bodyboarding ride, a family wave pool, five swimming pools, five hot tubs, seven children's water playgrounds, water and sand volleyball courts, five gift shops, a pizza arcade, and 20 refreshment centers.
The 25-acre Schlitterbahn East section, located approximately three blocks from the original Schlitterbahn West, was added in 1991. It includes the Surfenburg section with innovations ranging from the Boogie Bahn bodyboarding ride, to the world's first uphill water coasters. In 1996, the 4-acre Blastenhoff section opened next to Surfenburg with cutting-edge rides like the Torrent River and the Master Blaster uphill water coaster.
Visitors pay one price to enjoy the entire park, and free tram service is provided between the East and West sections. Children under age three are admitted free. There is no charge for tubes, life vests, or bodyboards, and parking is also free. Birthday party packages are available.
