Schlitterbahn's Season Pass: Everything You Need to Know

A Season Pass is one of the most popular purchases at all Schlitterbahn parks.

In this page, we'll explain what a Schlitterbahn Season Pass is (for both parks), the differences between the various season passes, what perks they offer, how you can pay for it, and even the upgrades that you can make.

What is a Schlitterbahn Season Pass?

A Schlitterbahn Season Pass allows a pass holder to visit the park an unlimited number of times throughout the 'season' in a year, on all days that are open to the public.

These passes offer benefits including free general parking, access to special events, and discounts, which we will all cover later.

The reason that it's not an 'Annual Pass' is due to Schlitterbahn not being open every month of the year.

The Schlitterbahn water parks are typically open from mid April - end of September.


There are three types of Season Passes at Schlitterbahn:

  1. Season Pass
  2. Texas 2 Pass
  3. Platinum Pass

Pass Differences

The regular Season Pass is designed for visitors whose main priority is being able to visit the water park consistently.

The Texas 2 Pass allows you access to both Schlitterbahn water parks (New Braunfels & Galveston).

The Platinum Pass allows you access to ALL Cedar Fair parks for the season.

Pricing-wise, the Platinum pass the most expensive pass.

Easy Pay Plan to Pay For a Season Pass

The Easy Pay Plan is a payment plan that you can use to pay for your season pass in multiple payments.

This allows you to have the flexibility to split up your payment over several months, rather than paying it all at once.

You'll have an initial payment, and for the next 3 months, you'll pay a fixed amount every month.

All three Schlitterbahn Season Passes are able to be paid with the Easy Pay Plan.

How it Works

  1. Select which season pass you want to purchase
  2. Input your billing information
  3. Upload a picture of yourself for your season pass or opt to take a picture at the park
  4. Check out

Paying in Full

If you're not interested in splitting up the payments, you're also able to pay for your season pass all at once.


If you're planning on visiting the park at least 2 times in a season, a season pass may be a good option for you.

You'll receive countless perks, and save plenty of money along the way.


If you're only planning on visiting the park once for the entire season, it most likely will not be worth the investment.

Season passes normally make sense for guests that will visit the park several times in a season.

During checkout, you will be given an option to upgrade your pass with a variety of options (that will also last for the entire season) including:

  • All Season Drink Bottle
  • Season Pass Drink Plan
  • All Season Dining
  • All Season FunPix

Where to Buy a Season Pass

You can purchase any of the Schlitterbahn Season Passes directly from the Schlitterbahn New Braunfels and Schlitterbahn Galveston sites.
