Congratulations to Annette, who is the winner of our recent giveaway of 2 Tickets to Schlitterbahn!

We are very excited to be visiting Schlitterbahn for the first time this summer! My kids are getting to the age where we can start to take family vacations, and this will be one of our first ones together.  Waterparks are perfect destinations because you can stay cool from the summer sun, and there is usually something for all age groups. Schlitterbahn Waterpark in Kansas City has a Kinderhaven area and Pirate Ship which is great for little ones.

Have you visited Schlitterbahn before? What are your favorite memories at the park?  Do you have any recommendations or tips to share for first-time visitors?  Please share in the comments below.

Helpful Tips for Visiting Schlitterbahn Waterpark

Pinterest

schlitterbahn_waterparks_resorts_logo

Many families will be visiting the waterpark this summer, and here are some helpful tips for visiting!

1. Swim shoes or flip flops – Schlitterbahn parks are among the largest in the nation, and that means that invariably there will be some hot spots without shade or outdoor carpet. Wear some sort of water worthy shoe.

2. Suncreen – Water rides remove the best in sunscreen. Apply, ride, repeat.

3. Pack a lunch – Schlitterbahn allows ice chests for your picnic lunch, but no glass or alcohol. Make sure to pack some favorites but leave room for park specialties like funnel cake and turkey legs!

4. Schlitterbahn offers free lifejackets, and so you do not need to worry about bringing your own along. They offer free tubes, too!

5. Bring a hat or sunglasses – and remember them for your little ones, too!

6. For smaller crowds, visit on a weekday, or visit during weekends in May, late August, and early September. As with other popular attractions, arrive early to enjoy the park all day long!

Be sure to enter our giveaway to win two tickets to Schlitterbahn!
