NEW BRAUNFELS, Texas, March 10, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Schlitterbahn New Braunfels Waterpark, voted the World's Best Waterpark for 13 consecutive years, announces the largest development in almost 15 years with the addition of a new park area called Tubenbach!
The new Tubenbach area features several new no-wait attractions and beaches allowing park guests to enjoy the new rides quickly without standing in a line. Also, several of the Tubenbach attractions are interconnected through an innovative Transportainment™ river allowing tubers to stay in the water and float through the Schlitterbahn East area.
The Falls - Get ready to challenge the world's longest waterpark ride filled with raging rapids, careening waterfalls and giant waves. Enter the 3,600 foot-long whitewater river at a variety of no-wait locations including Blastenhoff, Surfenburg and new beach areas surrounding the Rapids hot tub situated at the far end of Schlitterbahn East. The Falls is a continuous rushing river that also features a ride up the park's first AquaVeyer (SM) (conveyor belt lift hill) back to the beginning of the ride allowing for an endless float.
Deluge Whirlpool River – Tubers twist through a swift moving canyon wild with waves. This serpentine river also connects to The Falls offering a "choose your own adventure" never-ending water ride.
Boogie Bay Hot Tub – A secluded hot spring offers the perfect setting for a beverage of your choice while relaxing under a legacy oak tree.
Boogie Bay Kids' Area – Little guests will love a new collection of pint-sized water slides including a Dragon slide and several body slides.
New guest amenities include the addition of multiple Treehaus lodging units, several beaches, new lounging locations, the Grand Lawn event area, large family-size cabanas and the Wasserstrasse river walk along the banks of the Comal River.
