Rules & Safety

COVID-19 Precautions 

It is our number one priority to provide the safest experience for all of our guests. While our lifeguards and staff will continue to create a safe environment for you to enjoy, we also want to inform you of several additional actions we are taking to help combat the spread of COVID-19:

  • Deck chairs will be limited this year and spaced across the pool deck. We encourage guests to sit with family or people you live with to maintain physical distancing. Our staff will be patrolling the deck to ensure deck chairs are cleaned after each use.
  • Additional hand sanitizing stations will be installed and provided throughout the park. Guests are encouraged to practice good hygiene by washing hands regularly and using sanitizing stations.
  • Some amenities may have limited offerings such as the Leisure River. Staff will be stationed to monitor the volume of facilities and attractions. 
  • Please follow all posted rules and maintain physical distancing in que lines. There will be markers on the ground for maintaining physical distancing while waiting in lines for attractions, daily admission and concessions.
  • Guests can expect to see our staff in masks and gloves to ensure the safety of all our guests. While wearing a mask for patrons is not required, we encourage masks while walking around the park. Masks are not permitted in the water at any time.

Swim Safely

Splash Island Lifeguards are trained annually by Jeff Ellis and Associates, International Pool and Waterpark Lifeguard Training Program.

Splash Island is staffed by award winning, professionally trained lifeguards. Please follow the direction of the lifeguards at all times. Guardians are responsible for supervising their children; lifeguards are responsible for responding to emergencies. Splash Island and the parking areas are under video surveillance at all times. Please report any observed dangerous or unusual behavior to the park supervisors at once. Please stay within arms reach of your young children at all times.
