Do I need to use the Ride and Slide Pass during the same day?

No, and the pass is available for purchase any day both parks are open. It can be used on multiple days (Ex: Waterpark admission one day, and the Ride Wristband on the second day)  Can be used from all day at Breakwater Beach and all day at Casino Pier, when both parks are open.

Do you offer a Spectators admission?

Yes, the fee is $5 off admission. No parents with children under 11 years old will be allowed to spectate while their children are on the slides…”If your child is in the water, you should be too.”

What is your Severe Weather policy?

When a storm approaches our area, the park will typically remain open; however, the attractions will close if there is danger. Rides will reopen when it becomes safe. We understand that this will disrupt your day so we have a readmission policy. We will be happy to exchange your wristbands (not receipts) from today for a pass for another day. In order to obtain your free passes you will need to bring your wristbands (not receipts) from today to the admissions windows where you entered. Our friendly staff will exchange your wristbands for a return ticket for another day.

* If you choose to stay in the park until the rain passes you will not be given a readmission pass upon exiting.

* If you have chosen to leave and receive a pass, and decide to return later in the day, you must use your pass to re-enter. Once a band is exchanged it is no longer valid.

*In some cases the park will close once most of the guests have left. This depends on timing, length and severity of the storms. We will do everything in our power to reopen, however sometimes it is impossible.

* Please be sure to take all belongings with you in case of a storm, if the park closes you will not be able to reenter to return to your locker.
