NEW BRAUNFELS, Texas, June 18 /PRNewswire/ -- Just one week after a devastating storm swept through the Hill Country, Schlitterbahn New Braunfels has resumed full-park operations with all attractions ready again to welcome vacationing guests.

"I'm so proud of our dedicated team that worked tirelessly around the clock to clean up the entire park in just a few short days," explained Darren Hill, general manager for Schlitterbahn New Braunfels. "Our greatest challenge now is communicating to our guests that we are fully open and ready to entertain their families. So many of our guests have pictures of the storm firmly planted in their mind and cannot believe that it is possible for us to reopen so quickly."

Schlitterbahn's 75-acre waterpark and resort complex features more than 40 rides and family activities in seven areas, including:  three uphill water coasters, nine tube chutes, 17 water slides, the Boogie Bahn bodyboarding ride, a family wave pool, five swimming pools, five hot tubs, seven children's water playgrounds, water and sand volleyball courts, five gift shops and more than 20 refreshment centers.
