A lot of folks stay with us at Hill Country RV Resort & Cabins to tube in New Braunfels, but the Toobabalooza event coming up on September 17 will be a fun family event that takes tubing to a new extreme.

The name may be hard to say, but this fun adventure race will be even more of a challenge. Toobabalooza is an event that requires competitors to go through an inflatable obstacle course, run through mud pits, and of course, tube the river. You can register as a one, two or five person team and there will be different race times for each of the categories.

Teams of more than one person will all have their tubes tied together for the race, and have to work together to tube through the river and get through obstacles. All participants will have race bibs and timing chips to record their tubing time, and have to finish with their team at the end.

Check the Toobabalooza website for photos, rules and more information on how to register. And don’t forget about all the fun activities and events we have at the park. Call us before you come to find out what activities will be going on whenever you visit.

Beat the heat on The Falls

Posted on: August 6th, 2011 by Bryan No Comments

On the hottest week of the year, the new rides at Schlitterbahn couldn’t have opened at a better time. As we posted earlier, a new kids’ play area and large heated pool are already open, but the long awaited tube ride The Falls is now officially open.

The Falls has been under planning and construction for years and is now the world’s longest waterpark ride. Guests can get on the ride at various points throughout the three waterparks in Schlitterbahn, meaning no lines and easy transportation to other parks without walking on the hot pavement.

The Falls seems like a very long and lazy river, but as soon as guests get comfortable in their tubes, they’re jostled through whitewater rapids or sent down a small waterfall. View local Austin news coverage of the ride below for a virtual experience.

Come beat the heat and experience Schlitterbahn’s new rides in person, only a short drive from Hill Country RV Resort & Cottage Rentals in New Braunfels. We have two indoor pools and a recreation center to cool our guests down when they’re not braving the waves at the waterpark.
