Convertible technology!

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 ¼ of a mile. It is the best way to take your waterpark experience to new heights!

New Food in 2013!Schlitterbahn Galveston Island Waterpark proudly announces two new eateries. The Funnel Cake Factory will offer creative concoctions like red velvet and cookies n’ cream funnel cakes for our sweet tooth swimmers. Guests looking for something more savory can get their fill at our new Texas Cheese Steak eatery serving up the classic favorite Texas-style by dressing it with jalapenos, grilled onions and spicy cheese sauce. The park will also be offering “Blizzard Beer”, a refreshment for our adult guests that is always served up at a chilling 29 degrees.
