Schlitterbahn Water Park - Kansas City
With all of its tube rides, Schlitterbahn is like a float trip inside a waterpark. And with six new attractions now open, this waterpark is bigger and better! Their Transportainment River System allows guests to float in tubes throughout the park without ever leaving the water. Visit today and experience for yourself the incredible slides, lazy river, wave pool and surf ride!
Guests can now not only experience the great rides that were already there but also these great new ones! The Der Bahn is a dark slide where guests can slide through a secret passageway of water. The Loopy Luge Mat Slide and Comal Express Mat Slide let guests slide down twists and turns on a mat. The Mighty Mo is a new slide and the King Kaw Rapid River is the park's longest river attraction to date. Also try the Boogie Bahn Surf ride that offers the excitement of real surfing. And lastly, Blitz Falls Tube Chute is a fast-slow tubing adventure. You can also visit the other preexisting attractions such as the wave pool, the lazy river, kiddie playground and pirate ship.
Their aren't that many attractions but the ones they do have are worth the admission cost. It had the best "river" simulation I've been on and the slider we're a lot of fun. Not to mention the food is actually good, I know it is surprising, but I'm not lying. The pizza you can order is better than most chains. Good family fun. And yes, they will find the alcohol no matter where you find it.
Had a great time here. Park is clean. Staff is friendly. Just know if you arrive early to buy tickets that you cannot enter the park until 11:00 a.m. We rented a cabana which was a bit pricey but was a good place to have lunch and rest. Lockers are included with cabana rental. We had no trouble getting on rides nor was there a shortage of inner tubes. Inner tubes are included with ticket price. My favorite feature is the wave pool. We went during a weekday in July and there were a lot of people but it wasn’t overly crowded. Plan to go again.
4 out of 5 stars because one of their rides killed a little boy but other than the deathtrap of a ride it is fun and great for families. One piece of advice I would give any guy is to wear dark sunglasses because you don't want your wife or girlfriend to get mad at you for glancing at a beautiful lady walking by.
The park was way more fun than I expected, I figured my two young boys would enjoy it and that my Wife and I would just kind of be there for them. Turns out that She and I had quite a lot of fun, I expected to get banged around on slides and for things to be over priced but that's just not the case. Everything was reasonably priced, clean, happy, and friendly. The slides were all well made and fast, yet somehow I never was uncomfortable. The lazy river was really long and had an optional rapids portion that was so fun my Wife made us do it twice. The wave pool was made very cool with a wave corridor to ride through. Just overall a great time.
The family and I have been to this location a couple of times from out of state, we really enjoyed it every times. We came during the week so there wasn't a significant wait for anything and the kids were just old enough to enjoy 90% of the rides. We have young children so we splurged a little and opted to get cabanas which proved worthwhile for the kids had somewhere to nap after tons of fun in the sun. The food wasn't terrible for park food, and cabana service was always pleasant.
