Slitter Bomb Public Service Announcement

It’s actually SCHLITTERBAHN, (shlitter-bon) and here is their website. Have fun at the waterpark. Be safe. Wear your sunscreen. Don’t run around the pool. Happy summer.

Evidently many people have been directed to my site looking for “slitterbomb waterpark Galveston” because I’ve used the words “Galveston” and “waterpark.” Just wanted to help them on their way.

  1. One more tip for those Schlitterbahn searchers out there:

    Unless it’s the dead of winter, look straight past Galveston and check out the original Schlitterbahn in New Braunfels. Number one is still number one, and honestly they were the best decades before the world recognized it.

    With original rides still pumping fresh water from the Comal River, it’s a perfect location if you’ve got that one precious family member who, like me, is highly sensitive to chlorine. And with three separate sites around town, it’s really more like water resort city than a waterpark. And talk about fantastic German food! Oma’s Haus, oh!

    I also strongly recommend planning some time in nearby Gruene on the Guadalupe River. The Guadalupe has plenty of whitewater fun of its own. There’s great fishing, shopping, and even great fishing shopping (even some flyfishing). Also, Gruene Hall, the oldest dance hall in Texas is still the best place for some down home country nightlife (you might recognize it from the movie Hope Floats – Smithville indeed!)

    The reason I can’t shut up about the place is just so many fond memories of summers spent driving back and forth from Austin year after year. If you’re close enough to be searching Galveston, then you might as well look at just a little bit more drive for the best vacation location ever – THE Schlitterbahn, New Braunfels.

    That is all.

    I totally want to make a summer vacation jaunt down to Austin, Texas now, specifically to Schlitterbahn in New Braunfels. Seriously – fresh water from the Comal river? Genius.
