Covid-19 Water Park Opening Plans
The health and safety of our guests and employees is our FIRST priority. We want to let you know what we are doing to keep you safe. We have currently implemented the following procedures for Summer operations following strict guidelines from the Center for Disease Control. These guidelines are ever-changing, and we will continue to monitor and adapt our protocols as deemed necessary by the CDC and local agencies.
We are limiting the number of guests in the park each at one time and encourage social distancing to help reduce the chance of exposure. Additionally, ticket sessions have been adjusted to 90-Minute Water Park Sessions, so everyone has ample time in the park at a safe distance. The final session will be a discounted 1-hour session. A ticket is required for all guests on the grounds regardless of participation with advanced online reservations only, we will not be allowed to permit walk-ups. We are installing signage and social distancing markers throughout the park and in queues. We have implemented an added level of security by offering a “Stay-Home Policy” for all guests who have purchased tickets and have suddenly become ill, have been exposed to another who may be ill, or you are caring for someone who has become ill.
Internal training for staff and management on their responsibilities and best practices to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Staff will be required to wear PPE and participate in self-screening protocols including temperature checks, daily shift-questionnaire, and following protocols to isolate, respond, and quarantine any employee suspected of COVID-19. We will be increasing the cleaning frequency for tables, railings, and other “high-touch” zones. One-way traffic flow entering and exiting the park to allow for sanitization and cleaning regularly. For the second Summer Season, a Certified Pool Operator on duty checking verifying water quality several times daily.

While there is ongoing community spread of COVID-19 of the virus that causes COVID-19, it is important for individuals as well as owners and operators of these facilities to take steps to ensure health and safety:
