Covid Season Expectations
...what we're doing and what you need to do

The health and safety of our guests and employees is our #1 priority.

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, we think it is important that you understand our efforts so that you can make an informed choice. We are focused on taking all reasonable measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19 in our community. Our team has been involved with other water parks around the world to identify best practices to safely open. 

We will be increasing the cleaning frequency for things such as common touchpoints, dining areas, lifejackets and slide tubes. We will be limiting park capacity to encourage social distancing. We’ve installed social distancing markings. Additionally, we have taken measures to monitor and address symptomatic employees by a daily health questionnaire, and protocols to isolate, confirm, respond, and 14-day quarantine any employee suspected of COVID-19.  All employees will be required to wear a face mask while in contact with the public.

This situation continues to change daily, and as such, we will adapt and adjust our protocols and procedures as we follow the guidance provided by the CDC and local health departments, in our efforts to help keep our guests and employees safe.

We’d like to highlight that the CDC states: “Proper operation, maintenance and disinfection (e.g. with chlorine and bromine) of pools and hot tubs should remove or deactivate the virus that causes COVID-19.”

Here is what we expect and need from our customers...

• If guests are experiencing any symptoms such as fever, cough, sneezing, etc. PLEASE stay home.

• Guests will be required to open all of their own coolers and bags for screening, we will not touch

• Attendance capacity will be reduced to encourage social distancing 

• Please maintain 6' distancing in all lines, Wave Pool, US30 Surf Shop, restrooms, and hand wash stations...personal responsibility needed here.

• Hand sanitizer stations will be throughout the waterpark

• All ticket MUST be purchased on-line to reduce contact and availability is limited

• Frequent touch points will be disinfected frequently

• Hand contact points on mats & tubes will be disinfected

• Employees will be trained on keeping themselves and customers as safe as possible

• Locker rental will all be by kiosk

• Guests are requested to wear masks when not in the water

Despite all this there remains an inherent and elevated risk of exposure to Covid-19 in any public place and any place people are present.  While we are committed to enhanced standards in an effort to keep you as healthy and safe as possible, we can not guarantee you will not be exposed.



Food & Beverage

There are several food and beverage locations within the waterpark.
Surfside Cafe • Cactus Jacks • Chompy's Pizza • Dippin' Dots
