Schlitterbahn Waves of Reading Program

  • Welcome to Schlitterbahn's Waves of Pages, a reading program designed to inspire students in grades K-5 to read for fun! With your help, your child can earn one FREE admission ticket to Schlitterbahn Waterpark in New Braunfels by reading 600 minutes by the deadline of February 24, 2022. There will also be a special ticket discount for family members. 

    Here's how it works:

    1. You may read to your child, your child may read to you, or your child may read alone.

    2 Time spent reading for school assignments does NOT count toward the 600-minute goal. Reading anything DOES count - books, comic books, magazines, newspapers, etc.

    3. Record the number of minutes your child reads on the reading log (below). Parents must date and initial each entry to verify your child completed the reading sessions. Please use additional sheets of paper if needed.

    4. To be eligible for the FREE admission ticket and discounts, all reading must be completed by Februrary 24th and the reading log must be turned in on (or before) Friday, February 25, 2022. LATE READING LOGS WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED.

    Ticket delivery will be provided by April 1, 2022.

    Admission tickets are valid Sundays through Fridays from Sunday, April 3, 2022 to June 30, 2022 at Schlitterbahn New Braunfels, Texas. Please note that the Waves of Pages tickets are nontransferable and may not be sold.

    Please contact Mrs. Neal, Wiederstein Librarian, if you have any questions about this program.

    This program was developed to inspire your child to become part of a new generation of readers and to provide your child's teachers with a fun way of encouraging reading. We hope you will want to participate and look forward to seeing your family in the park this summer!
