Schlitterbahn is more than seventy acres of relaxation, thrilling adventure, and family fun. Situated along the banks of the Comal River in New Braunfels, the park includes water playgrounds for children, world-famous attractions, stunning areas for a picnic or relaxation, and epic river adventures. Visitors can also choose to stay at the park overnight at The Resort at Schlitterbahn, which features cabins, hotel rooms, vacation homes, and Treehaus Suites. Guests who stay at the resort are offered Schlitterbahn exclusives, such as early access to attractions. Resort guests also have access to the Family Arcade, Swim-Up Bars, and the Boogie Bahn after the park closes.
There are numerous attractions at Schlitterbahn, ranging from relaxing pools to thrilling water coasters. Black Night is a completely enclosed water slide that sends guests down into eerie darkness on two-person inner tubes. Two tunnels made of black fiberglass start at six stories up and from there, riders enjoy twists and drops as they speed down more than 550 feet. Another attraction that can give visitors an adrenaline rush is Skycoaster, which gives guests the chance to "fly" over Blastenhoff by combining elements of hang gliding and skydiving. Schlitterbahn
