Free Perks in Galveston

It’s vital to Ryson Vacation Rentals to add value and perks to your stay in Galveston.  So, as an added perk for choosing Ryson Vacation Rentals, we’ve partnered with Xplorie to offer free Galveston attraction tickets

If you’re in the mood to splash around Schlitterbahn Galveston Waterpark, we’re treating you to one adult ticket each day of your stay. Schlitterbahn Galveston is divided into three sections Wasserfest (the indoor area), Blastenhoff, and Surfenberg. In Blastenhoff, you’ll find one of the tallest water coasters in the world, standing at 82 feet, 6.72 inches. Get your courage, and this will be a ride to remember. Tip: Schlitterbahn allows you to bring your own picnic, excluding outside alcohol and glass containers. 

Anglers will love the one free pass to the 61st Street Fishing Pier. If you forgot your fishing rod, they offer fishing rod rentals, and they also sell bait. Make sure to have your fishing license. You can purchase at Walmart, Academy, or online at the Texas Parks and Wildlife website. Hours of operation may vary based on the time of year and the weather. 

Do you have any puzzle lovers in your group? If you’re looking for a fun, family-friendly activity, then take advantage of your one free ticket to Escape the Island. They offer five challenge rooms, including one themed around Pirate Jean Lafitte, Galveston’s famed Balinese Room, and the 1900 Storm. 

To redeem your tickets with Xplorie, text GULF409 TO 94479 or visit their website for details. Remember to have your Xplorie Card and major credit card ready and have an idea on your preferred activity day and requested time. 

We encourage you to book 24 to 48 hours in advance. Remember, if you are looking for something in particular, our concierge service, Gulf Coast Concierge, can assist with equipment rentals, groceries, and plans for special occasions like birthdays, anniversaries, wedding proposals, and romantic getaways. Travel is about creating experiences, and Galveston offers plenty of things to do. 

Make the most of these suggestions and take advantage of these free tickets during your stay in Galveston.
