History of the Park
The Schlitterbahn Waterpark was created in 1966 when Bob and Billye Henry bought the stretch of Texas Hill Country land. They started creating the first water resort in the nation and it soon became the most popular attraction in the summer season. This type of building had never been attempted before, so they had to rely on their own vision for the family water destination it has become today.
