Discounts and Tips for Your Schlitterbahn Trip in Summer 2016

Are you planning a trip to Schlitterbahn this summer? Here are some tips and ways to save:

Simon Summer Fun Packs
Grab your Simon Summer Fun Packs at the Simon Guest Services at: Round Rock Premium Outlets, Barton Creek Square, Lakeline Mall, The Domain, or San Marcos Premium Outlets.

Each Fun Pack contains two general admission tickets to Schlitterbahn Waterpark, a $25 Simon gift card and other goodies for only $85.

Given the normal price for All-Day General Admission for adults is $50.99 (if bought online), that's savings of $17. Plus you get $25 shopping money and retailer coupons and discounts.

We verified today, all locations still have Summer Fun Packs left.

Other tips:

Come early
Tickets need to be swapped for a wristband, so try to get there early to be at the front of the line.

Stay late
Lines get thinner the last hour before closing, so staying until the end of day is worth it.

Yes, you may bring your own food and drinks (no alcohol, please)!

Buy two-day tickets
Tickets don't need to be used on consecutive days, so you can come back whenever you want.

Enjoy your stay and share your experience with the Live Grow Play Austin community.
