Being from Austin, TX, I grew up on Schlitterbahn Waterpark which is just a 45 minute drive to New Braufels, TX. Some things never get old. Some things are just classic. Some things are best done with family.
I recently took a trip back to Austin from Chicago and my dad took a whole crew of us for our traditional summer day of fun in the sun at the hottest, coolest time in Texas. One of the bonus attractions of the park was The Skycoaster, charging an extra $35-$45 per person for a free fall in a human-sized sling.
It was right up my alley. I was joined in my adventure by my brother, Jason and my buddy, Ron.
