    We were visiting from Arizona and though the weather was cool it still was a nice place to visit. We walked around and enjoyed nature! We read about the history of Landa Park and thank you for New Braunfels for offering this lovely park to everyone.

    This is in the Hill Country and was settled by German migrants in the mid-1800s. Many of the traditions persist, including the great food. The countryside is beautiful, and the people are friendly. Well worth a visit.

    Bigger than I thought, it was clean, friendly staff. My 3 year old and I really enjoyed all the animals. Definitely wish the wolves had a large pool or something to cool them down in this Texas heat. But all around great day and experience. We will be going back.

    Super cute place for photos. Not much parking though. It wasn't too busy, but there was another photographer there. Lots of options on the bridge, under the bridge by the water, cool grafitti building in the background and great fall colors.

    A couple of friends and I had come here the recent weekend, and we had a very enjoyable time. But I'm making this review because our group had a problem with a Tram-Driver by the name of Don.

    At first it was a misunderstanding and I was aware that I was at fault, but this man decided to get irate and act very unprofessionally to not just to us, but to his fellow coworker by trying to get her in trouble for something she wasn't at fault for.

    Besides this one instance of a rude staff member, the rest were very nice and very helpful. Enjoyable experience.

    Such a fun place! They make it easy to buy your tickets on the app or when you pull up to the ticket booth. The 50's diner was cute and the food looked good! There are a few options to listen to the movie, 1. Through your car radio or 2. Through a portable FM radio. The ticket booth guy told us that our car battery would more then likely dies, but they can give a jump. We weren't a fan of that option, so he also mentioned that you can rent a FM radio at the diner for $10 and a $20 refundable deposit once the radio is returned after the movie. We went with that option and it was perfect! Definitely a must do on your trip! Bonus...we saw sooo many stars too, truly amazing.

    There is a lot of history in a small space. The people are very friendly and helpful! Interesting from the time they purchased this land, to all the great displays of businesses.

    * more play focused than education focused
    We go to children's museums all over the country and I feel this is one of the nicer ones we have been to. It's not huge, but it has a good variety of indoor exhibits such as hospital, doctor's office, and ambulance that lights up. It has an outer space section with a space walk that might be a little intense for kids with sensory processing issues. It's got bright red lights down the hall that lead to a room of stars where it is pitch black. You must feel your way out. But it was a lot of fun! It has several forced air exhibits. There's a bank and grocery store. There's a western section, forest/camping section with a bat cave, and indoor playhouse, and a toddler section. The outdoor section features lots of water table play and musical instruments along with a very nice playground, all covered with fans.
    In addition the gift shop was really nice stuff like Melissa and Doug and STEM, not just garbage.

    I’m a local and always enjoy their fruit infused wines. I have not found one that I dislike . Wonderful atmosphere, you can go up stairs and into talking to friends or if the weather is nice you can sit outside and enjoy and relax. I recommend to stop by and have some of the wine tastings .

    Nice little station. Nice staff. Visit an actual dining car and caboose. Nice exhibit of trains. How appropriate an actual train goes by the station.

    Amazing time. Everyone had the best hospitality service you could ask for. Teagan the bartender and Cayden at Lokis Axe Throwing had the best customer service. Lived here for 2 years and never knew this place existed. Came for axe throwing and ended up having lunch and spending hours here. Will definitely be back.
