Setting Kids on the Road to a Bright Future
Schlitterbahn Waterparks exist to provide wholesome family fun at the hottest, coolest places in Texas and Kansas. A less visible part of our mission is to to make tomorrow a little brighter for as many children as possible. That is why we are proud to support Texas and the Greater Kansas City region non-profit organizations that focus on children. Over the years we have donated hundreds of thousands of park tickets to schools and charities for this purpose.
