Test your skills on Boogie Bahn, Schlitterbahn New Braunfels' surfing simulator ride!

Boogie Bahn Surfing Ride

An endless moving mountain of water with all the excitement of ocean surfing. Surfers use our bodyboards to test their skills against 50,000 gallons of water a minute. Professional surfers from all over the world have challenged the Boogie Bahn, the first surfing ride anywhere. But you don't have to be a pro to surf at Schlitterbahn.

Just grab a bodyboard and try it for yourself. You might not get the hang of it at first, but be careful, when you do you might just get hooked! Some locals who had never surfed before Schlitterbahn opened the Boogie Bahn are now among the best in the world. And while you might not become that good, it's an experience you'll never forget.

You lie on your bodyboard and slide down onto the wave surface. Although 50,000 gallons of water flow across the surface, the water depth is just a matter of inches. Beneath the sheet of water is a foam covered surface to ease the occasional "wipe-out."
