​​​​​​​GALVESTON - It’s official: Everything really is bigger in Texas, as far as water coasters are concerned, at least.

The Guinness Book of World Records crowned Schlitterbahn Galveston’s newest water coaster the tallest in the world.

The MASSIV Monster Blaster towers more than 81 feet—81 feet 6 ¾ inches, to be exact—MASSIV features three uphill shoots, twists and turns and a triple drop to the end.​

“MASSIV will be the marquee ride for our park,” said Schlitterbahn Galveston Island General Manager Ron Sutula. 

A water coaster has the feel of a roller coaster with multiple uphill blaster sections and downhill spirals.

The design, the length of two and a half football fields, is an exceptionally tall water coaster in a very narrow space while balancing g-forces, ride dynamics, and velocities to produce the most exhilarating experience possible.

It features three uphill sections, a series of twists and turns, and a triple drop finale.

Schlitterbahn Galveston Island Waterpark has been recognized as the World’s Best Indoor Waterpark eight consecutive years in a row.
