Kristal River

An endless float around the entire Surfenburg area. Kristal River is one of three "endless" rivers at Schlitterbahn. By that we mean that these rivers are all at one level and form a continuous loop. Riders, therefore, can stay in them as long as they wish, being propelled along by the current. You swim, float on a tube, or on hop on the back of one of the friendly alligators that inhabit the river. Kristal River encircles the Surfenburg section and can be entered from a number of stairways located along the inner perimeter or from the adjacent Kristal Cove. For a more exciting entry to the river, try the Backsplash, a fast-flowing channel that begins near the Boogie Bahn and flows directly into the Kristal River.
