I received complimentary tickets in exchange for this post. We love this park and I know you will too!
Having fun with family and friends doesn’t have to break the bank. Atfamily owned and operated Schlitterbahn, it is totally possible to have an affordable vacation or Houston day trip. Schlitterbahn saves mom’s budget by offering free parking, free life jackets, and families can bring in an ice chest of food! Food prices are reasonable and healthy options abound. Here are more money saving tips for Schlitterbahn.
Buy your season pass early! Buy your pass early while they have them on sale. Early bird pricing is the cheapest price all year. And if you already have a pass, renew it early for extra savings.
Two days are better than one. Two day passes are the best deal if a season pass doesn’t make sense for you. The two day passes don’t have to be used on consecutive days and given how much there is to do at Schlitterbahn, you’ll need another day to take advantage of the fun!
Pack your sunscreen. If you forget you can purchase some at the shops. This is essential for the whole family!
Bring your lunch. You can bring your own food and drinks (no glass or alcohol) in your own cooler, so pack for the day. You can find some great tips on keeping your cooler cool here and great recipes for your hungry crew here.
FREE Lifejackets: No need to pack floaties. Schlitterbahn has free life vests for infants, children, and adults located all throughout the park.
Waterproof Camera: You will want to catch every moment on film. Don’t risk ruining your phone or nice camera. Bring a camera or purchase a waterproof camera at the shops.
Forget the cash, get a wristband. This saves us so much worry! We give our cash to the people at Guest Services and they load it onto a wristband. You can use this to make purchase in the park. Didn’t spend it all? No problem. Stop back by and get the rest refunded to you.
Come Early: Get to park early (by 9:00 a.m.) be the first in and claim a table near the kids’ area that best suits your child. Trust me, the tables go fast! For ideas on where to get the best table go here.
Shoes: The ground gets very hot. Avoid carrying your child all day by coming prepared. Water shoes or flip flops are allowed. But you will have to hold them while you ride body slides.
