Summer is here and no better way to cool off then to head on down to Schlitterbahn in Galveston!
Toddlers and tweens in tow Schlitterbahn is designed to have something for every age. Inland surfing on the boogie bahn in very doable with a lesson or two, splash zones are designed to be safe for the littlest of guest. With free life jackets and kids tubes even cautious moms can feel safe.
Worried it's not affordable? With Schlitterbahn taking kids to a waterpark can be a lot easier and you can be frugal too. Schlitterbahn saves mom's budget by offering free parking, free life jackets, and families can bring in an ice chest of food! Keep in mine their food prices are reasonable and healthy options abound.
Here are a few waterpark survival tips to remember on your next trip to Schlitterbahn:
- Swim shoes or flip flops - Schlitterbahn parks are among the largest in the nation, and that means that invariably there will be some hot spots without shade or outdoor carpet. Wear some sort of water worthy shoe.
- Sunscreen - Water rides remove the best in sunscreen. Apply, ride and repeat.
- Pack a lunch - Schlitterbahn allows ice chests but no glass or alcohol. Make sure to pack some favorites but leave room for park specialties like funnel cake and turkey legs!
