Cool off from the summer heat at any of these San Antonio water parks. White Water Bay at Six Flags Fiesta, Schlitterbahn Waterpark and Splashtown Waterpark are three wet and wild activities that will cool you down from the hot, Texas sun this season. When you are visiting the city this year, whether to tour the Alamo, get into the Old Western feel or catch a baseball game, take some time off and get out of the heat.
You can spend the day enjoying all of the thrilling rides and shows at Six Flags Fiesta, then take a break from the summer heat at the connected water park. White Water Bay is home to one of the largest wave pools in the country, as well as a dozen other exciting water attractions. From high thrill level rides to more mild activities, the adrenaline never stops at this water park. Try the Big Bender, where you’ll plummet down the slide, twist through dark tunnels and splash through waterfalls before a 50-foot drop. Or, take the kids to Texas Treehouse, where they can control the water, including tipping over the enormous water tank on the unsuspecting heads below. White Water Bay is home to muti-passenger rafting rides, water slides, a wave pool, kid-sized water activities and more, making it the perfect way to cool off from the summer heat.
Six Flags Fiesta Texas also includes water rides inside the park, such as Bugs’ White Water Rapids, The Gully Washer river adventure and The Power Surge, where even the bystanders will get soaked. Spend the afternoon on all of the high-speed roller coasters, with the wind against your face, and then head over to the water rides in both the amusement park and White Water Bay. White Water Bay admission is free with admission into Six Flags Fiesta Texas, so you can enjoy two parks for the price of one!
Lean why Schlitterbahn Waterpark is the best water park in the world when you visit San Antonio this year. Schlitterbahn is located in New Braunfels, just minutes away from San Antonio. Learn how to surf, take an exploration down the Congo River, grab tight to your tube or raft as you shoot down high speeds on a slide and twist through a water-filled canyon in a “choose your own adventure” water ride. Schlitterbahn is filled with dozens of rides, pools, kid’s playgrounds and more. Lay on the beach, take a dip in the ocean and swim right up to a bar to enjoy a drink as you cool off. Spend the day at Schlitterbahn – you’ll never have to leave the water! The Transportainment river at this park allows you to travel from one attraction to the next, all from the cool water.
At Splashtown Waterpark, you can enjoy more than fifty rides and attractions, special events, a covered picnic area, a restaurant and concession stands, dive-in movies and more, all in one location.

The Hydras slide is filled with corkscrews, twists, turns and drops, all within 5 stories. StarFlight is one of the most popular slides at Splashtown and takes riders through complete darkness in a fully-enclosed tube. Kid’s Kove is filled with activities that put the youngest kids in control. This attraction is designed for preschoolers and toddlers and includes a kid-sized lazy river, rides and an interactive play area. Throughout the summer, you can also head over to the wave pool around sunset for a dive-in movie, including The Smurfs, Puss in Boots and Journey 2 – The Mysterious Island.
