Schlitterbahn Galveston Indoor Water Park Closing for Extended Refurbishments

Schlitterbahn Galveston, now a part of the Cedar Fair family, has announced that it will close its indoor operations early for the season on November 17th for extended refurbishments and improvements.

Touting a "new and improved experience in 2020," the water park will see a number of changes that will make guests more comfortable starting when it reopens on February 29th, 2020.  When Cedar Fair closed on the purchase of the two Schlitterbahn water parks they said that they were planning some significant capital expenditures for them over the next two years, this seems to be the first of them to be announced.

So what exactly is happening?  The park has posted an information update about the changes and described some of them in detail.  They plan to focus on attraction maintenance, improve the food and beverage operations of the park, renovate all the restrooms, and give the park's main entrance a full makeover to make getting in the park faster, more streamlined and "prettier."

Granted none of these things are an exciting massive new water slide or attraction, but after Cedar Fair has some time to make cosmetic and operational changes this year I wouldn't be shocked to see a big new attraction in 2021.

Schlitterbahn Galveston also promises additional announcements, surprises, and updates to be posted to their blog as work progresses, so stay tuned for more details.

Cedar Fair buys Schlitterbahn & renovates all the bathrooms within 6 months, meanwhile cedar point the flagship park has the worst bathrooms in the chain.
