NEW SAFTEY GUIDELINES

Park Capacity Limitations:

The number of guests each day will be limited.  Pass holders will simply click the link on our website for “Pass Holder Reservations” and follow the prompts prior to the visit.  Bring your reservation printout with you to the park.

Daily tickets and Two-day Play Passes must be purchased online.  Once purchased, you will select your reservation date that the tickets will be used.  Bring your reservation printout with you to the park.

Guests without a reservation are not guaranteed admittance if park capacity limits have already been reached that day. The reservation system will also provide the means for contact tracing should that be necessary. 

Daily Wellness Checks:

Guests and team members will be asked to answer screening questions before entering the park. Team members will have their temperatures checked and anyone with a temperature of 100.4 or higher will be sent home. The screening questions include the following:

Have you experienced any of the following signs or symptoms within the last 72 hours?

–Temperature at or greater than 100.4 degrees

–Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing

–Coughing

–Muscle pain

–Repeated shaking with chills

–Headache

–Sore throat

–New loss of taste or smell

Have you had close contact with any person known to have COVID-19 or that has demonstrated any of the signs or symptoms within the last 72 hours?

Have you traveled on any cruise ship, including river cruises, or performed any international travel with the last 14 days?

Answering yes to any of these questions may prevent you from entering the park.  The CDC advises that older adults and people of any age with who have serious underlying medical conditions might be at higher risk for severe illness from COVID-19.  There is an inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 while in any public place where people are present.  By visiting our park, you are voluntarily assuming all risks related to exposure to COVID-19.

Social Distancing Required:

Guests are required to maintain six feet of social distance from other guests.  You will notice lots of signage reminding guests to practice proper social distancing.  The only exceptions will be for family units that live together.  Families that come to the park will be allowed to sit together, ride together, slide together, etc.  Social distancing will be accomplished through ground markers, modified ride loading, park capacity limits, and requiring six-feet of social distance in ride lines, food lines, admission lines, show seating, and in all water park areas.  Chairs in our water park will be spaced in family sections of five each to accomplish social distancing.

Face Masks Required:

All employees will be required to wear face masks while working to the extent possible.  There will be protective shields between employees and guests at all point of sale locations. Employee team members will be educated about illness prevention, preparedness and response.

Guests are strongly encouraged to wear face masks between rides and slides.  Due to safety constraints, face masks are not permitted in the water, on water slides and on certain rides.

Sanitizing Procedures:

We will be sanitizing surfaces in our park and have trained staff on proper cleaning procedures to follow to prevent the spread of COVID-19.  We are using a disinfectant product, increasing the frequency and duration of cleaning procedures and are adding alcohol-based hand sanitizing stations all over the park.

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.”  We will achieve social distancing in our pools by limiting capacity levels.  Tubes and life jackets will be sanitized with a chlorine solution and we ask all guests to use a towel on all pool furniture. Pool chairs will be sanitized daily and throughout the day.

Masks are strongly encouraged for guests to wear but not required. Masks are not allowed in the pools, waterslides and on certain thrill rides.
