Huffington Post Names Schlitterbahn One Of America's Top Seven Theme Parks

NEW BRAUNFELS, Texas, April 27, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The Huffington Post selected the top seven theme parks in America and Schlitterbahn in New Braunfels, Texas was on the list. No other theme park in Texas - or west of the Mississippi, for that matter - made the list.


Noting that theme parks are as American as baseball, Huffington Post Travel reporter Emily Bratcher observed that theme parks offer "quality time with your clan, away from the ubiquitous TV and computer screens that increasingly monopolize our time at home together." Schlitterbahn, Bratcher noted, is known for being the best of its kind as well as delivering excellent value for families.

Schlitterbahn now has four locations - in Texas there are parks in Galveston Island, South Padre, and New Braunfels, and in Kansas there is park right in Kansas City. All three Texas Schlitterbahn Waterparks are now open; Schlitterbahn Kansas City opens Memorial Day weekend. For more information visit

About Schlitterbahn: Family-owned and operated, Schlitterbahn Waterparks and Resorts has been a leader in family-friendly water-based entertainment since 1979.  The company operates Schlitterbahn Beach Resort, South Padre Island, TX, Schlitterbahn Galveston Island Waterpark, Galveston Island, TX, Schlitterbahn Kansas City Waterpark, Kansas City, KS and Schlitterbahn New Braunfels Waterpark and Resort, New Braunfels, TX, all of which offer family amenities that include free parking and free inner tubes. Guests are also welcome to bring a family picnic basket, excluding alcohol and glass containers, into the parks. Schlitterbahn will open its fifth park in Corpus Christi in 2014.
