Frequently Asked Questions

Our current schedule reflects a safe and responsible approach to park operations in this unique environment. We understand you want to see the entire park reopen. Trust us, we would like nothing more than a long float down The Falls or to cascade along the iconic Hillside tube chute. But, the reality is creating a safe and healthy environment is dependent on a variety of factors related to our new operational environment.

Please know the Bahn team is working hard behind the scenes to deliver the best experience possible for our loyal passholders. We have your best interests at heart. We recommend you refer to our park calendar to help you schedule your next trip.

Check the New Braunfels schedule and Galveston schedule for details.

Face coverings are required for entry into the park, in food and beverage lines, bars, merchandise locations, restroom facilities, and as you exit the park. Face masks are encouraged while walking throughout the park. For your safety, we ask that you remove face coverings when experiencing water attractions or pools. Face coverings are not required while waiting in line for water attractions, nor for guests under the age of two-years-old.

A cloth mask, a disposable mask, a neck gaiter or a bandana all qualify as a face covering. 

You are welcome to stay as long as you like until the park closes for the day.

No, because we are also limiting the number of guests who can visit the park, so everything is reduced in proportion.
