Schlitterbahn Waterpark New Braunfels
400 N. Liberty Ave., New Braunfels, (830) 625-2351, schlitterbahn.com
Perhaps Central Texas’ favorite summer destination, this Schlitterbahn outpost pretty much gives you four water parks in one. This park is located on the Comal River, using the space for tube chutes, rides, tube slides and pools using the spring-fed river water. That means the water is always a cool 72 degrees! There’s plenty of ways to cool down and have fun, so make it a point to explore it all!
