Galveston, Texas

Summer is gearing up and I’m constantly amazed at how many fun things there are in the Houston area.

Schlitterbahn is an amazing water park with numerous locations in Texas. I was excited to find in Galveston. Now we have a little-a threenager so I was hesitant to bring her but we are adventurers. I was worried there wouldn’t be enough for us to do. Boy was I wrong.

Here are my top five things to do with small children at Schlitterbahn, Galveston Island.

1.Torrent Beach Kids Area-Torrent Beach Kids Area is an area just for littles with chase loungers for parents. The area includes small slides and waterfall mushrooms perfect for entertaining the littlest guests. This area is also considered inside or rather in a completely covered area so no worries about burns!

2.Tiki TikesThis is an outside area with loungers and shaded picnic areas. All small tikes areas have roughly 1 foot of water. This section boasts two slides perfect for young children and loads of water gushing out everywhere from tikis to water pipe “breaks”. Children are allowed to ride on parents laps down the slide as well.

3. Treasure Island Kids Pool– This outside area boasts a ginormous pirate ship full of slides and water features. Large enough for splashing around and lounging for grownups.

4. Wasserfest Kids Area-This smaller kids area is located in the inside covered are of the park so no burn worries. This kids area has a smaller pirate ship with four small water slides, dumping buckets and waterfall mushrooms.

5.Mix Your Own Icee and Watching Kristal River-Who doesn’t love an icee? At Schlitterbahn you can get an extra long clear icee cup and fill it with a rainbow of flavors and just sit back and watch all the people enjoying the lazy river. I found that when we needed a break our little loved watching all the big kids on the slides.

I was honestly surprised at how many areas Schlitterbahn had created for small children. It really is a family fun park.

Parking is free and it’s close, our walk was minimal. Floaty Vests are available at the park to borrow for small children so if you don’t want to lug your floaties around you don’t have to. Is your little a thrill seeker? Well they can ride most large slides sitting on your lap-you brave souls!

Row was the one screaming no, no, no as I drug her out of the park. So there you have it. Don’t think that’s enough? How about you see for yourself?
