Safety Guidelines

Stand Up to Drowning

Staff members strongly recommend that parents join their children in the water, regardless of their swimming abilities, and keep non-swimmers within arms-reach at all times. Coast Guard approved life vests are available for sale from the Waterpark guest services hut for $20 and are recommended for non-swimmers; unapproved flotation devices are unsafe and their use is prohibited.

In addition, the staff is re-naming the 15-minutes each hour formerly designated as “adult swim” as “safety break.” The idea behind it is to keep children from becoming exhausted in the pool, which can be deadly. And the Waterpark pool formerly designated as the “Zero-Depth Entry” or “Baby Pool” is now being referred to as the “Wading pool,” to distinguish it from the deeper adjacent “Swimming pool.” 

New informational signs are being posted around the pools and in the changing rooms. Guests, including parents, guardians and children, are requested to sign a non-binding safety pledge as they enter the Waterpark. Temporary tattoos with safety messages are available for children. And pool staff members are being encouraged to share safety messages with guests.
