Schlitterbahn

When New Braunfels flooded (again) earlier this summer, Schlitterbahn reopened the very next day. That's a testament to the world-class resolve of this Central Texas treasure. Since 1979, the original Schlitterbahn has mastered the art of what loosely translates to "slippery roads." With more than 65 acres of entertainment options, there's literally something for everyone, and the allowance of free picnics makes for a relatively affordable experience.

400 N. Liberty Ave., New Braunfels, 830/625-2351
