Follow these tips for a fun-filled day at the water park!

  • If you want to avoid crowds, arrive early or a couple hours before the water park closes for the day. Also, weekends tend to be more crowded than weekdays, so try to plan a visit during the week.
  • Check whether picnic areas are available outside the park. Many parks allow you to exit and re-enter if you want to enjoy a picnic. This is a great way to save a few bucks. 
  • If your group splits up, be sure to have a set meeting place and time. 

What to bring: 

  • Swimsuit
  • Beach towel
  • Sunscreen
  • Swim shoes
  • Plastic swim diapers for your little ones
