A Water Filled Adventure for Spring Break Starts at Schlitterbahn

By Winter Prosposio

People look for all kinds of signs of spring, but for us there’s no clearer sign than the re-opening of America’s #1 indoor waterpark – Schlitterbahn Galveston Island. Sure, some people will be on the lookout for returning swallows and the scent of early blooming flowers, but around here we are looking for the bright colors of brand new swimsuits and the smell of sunscreen!

The good news our wait is over – Schlitterbahn Galveston Island Indoor Waterpark opens weekends in early March and daily for spring breakers, March 10 through the 18. It’s an early tropical getaway close to home. The 70,000 square-foot indoor waterpark offers more than a dozen heated attractions including four tube slides, three speed slides, three young kids’ activity areas containing a variety of children’s play elements and pint-sized slides, a secluded beach, a hot tub, a man-made surfing wave and the Torrent® tidal wave river. Guests can enjoy more than a dozen heated climate-controlled attractions between the park hours of 10 am – 5 pm.

Spring break tickets are available online at the indoor discount rate of $25.99 for general all-day admission, ages 12 and older, and $20.99 for children, ages 3 – 11, and seniors, 55 years or older. Adventure seekers 2 years old and are free.

Those who are also keeping their eyes out for early signs of summer will be happy to know that the outdoor areas of the waterpark open for weekends beginning April 21. If that’s not a sign of an early summer, we don’t know what is!

Once the summer season begins in April, guests can enjoy more than 33 state-of-the-art attractions including two uphill water coasters, two wave pools, water slides, kids’ playgrounds, whitewater rapids, heated pools, the Boogie Bahn surf ride and the exclusive Transportainment® interconnected river system. There are plenty of summer adventures – mild and wild – for all ages. Memories are priceless, but your waterpark experience is affordable at Schlitterbahn. Guests are allowed to bring a picnic lunch into the park (no glass or alcohol), and parking, tubes, and lifejackets are free.

It’s the hottest coolest time in Galveston – starting in March! If you’re ready to build two seasons’ worth of memories, check into season passes, which the best way to maximize your fun. Check for more information.
