Best Texas Amusement Park

Schlitterbahn

Are you a Schlitt-head? We hope you realize, Austin, that you are utterly spoiled in this category – because nothing, nothing, compares to this German-tinged sprawling waterpark. From the hand-built throughways of some of the park's oldest attractions to the spooky animatronic hilarity of the Congo River Expedition, the place is heavy on nostalgia for us. We still remember when body slides came out of the central castle, and the sun-drenched opening of Surfenburg. It's a different zeit, but the same geist. This is about your kids, kids, and trust that the boogers are gonna make instant memories at this New Braunfels institution.

400 N. Liberty Ave., New Braunfels, 830
