Schlitterbahn New Braunfels Blast Pass: All You Need to Know
Blast Passes are some of the most popular passes at the Schlitterbahn New Braunfels park.
In this page, we'll explain what a Blast Pass is, what it allows you to do, what rides it includes, and where to buy them.
What is a Blast Pass?
A Schlitterbahn New Braunfels Blast Pass allows visitors to reserve their spot for a ride and wait virtually, instead of physically needing to be there to wait in line.
The Blast Pass is extremely popular as guests can stay in the Wave pool, eat, and/or do anything else until it is their time to ride.
Visitors will receive a Blast Pass watch, where they can reserve their spot, and be informed when it is their turn to ride the ride.
Types of Blast Passes
There are two types of Blast Passes:
- Blast Pass
- Super Blast Pass
The Super Blast Pass works exactly like the Blast pass, however the wait time is half of the time.
This means that is the Blast Pass watch wait time is 50 minutes, the Super Blast Pass watch will be 25 minutes.
How Does the Watch Work?
The Blast Pass watch is a touch-screen watch where you will be able to see the wait times for each ride, and reserve your ride.
The watch will show you the current time, as well as how many minutes are left until it is your turn.
When it is your turn to ride, the watch will notify you.
If you decide that you want to change the ride that you're waiting for (before it is your turn), you can also 'Replace' a ride directly from the watch.
When it is your turn to ride, you'll simply need to show your watch to the ride operators.
Is It Included With Admission?
No. A Blast Pass is an additional cost and visitors will still need a Schlitterbahn New Braunfels ticket in order to access the park.
In short, you are not able to use a Blast Pass without an admission ticket.
You can purchase it directly from the Schlitterbahn New Braunfels site.
Each person will need their own Blast Pass, as a single Blast Pass will not work for multiple visitors.
Don't Lose the Blast Pass Watch
If you lose the Blast Pass watch that was provided to you, you will have to pay a fee to replace it.
This is exactly why there's a $20 refundable deposit fee applied, when you purchase the Blast Pass watch.
So.. Make sure that you have the watch strapped on tightly!
Is a Blast Pass Worth it?
If you're visiting on a weekend, especially during the busier months of the year, a Blast Pass is absolutely worth it.
When the park is busy, ride wait times can be several hours. You can avoid dealing with that by investing in a Blast Pass.
If you're visiting on a weekday, a Blast Pass may not be worth it as ride wait times are traditionally much shorter.
