Waterproof cell phone case: while you should be in the moment, the time may arise where it's important to capture the smiles and joy on your family members’ faces. These tiny cases provide the ability to protect your phone and also keep it dry while being able to snap some pictures. Get the perfect picture at the fun swimming pools or in the kiddie pool!
While no outside food or beverage is permitted at Splish Splash, there are options for meals, snacks, and cold beverages inside the park. Especially when playing hard and in the sun, water is a must for each and every guest, so make sure to drink more than you would normally. We provide quick stops to stock up on hydration products during your stay. The park has lockers available in three sizes which can be rented for the day depending on your needs. Thanks to the technology available today, the need to keep track of your key is no longer required. Each of the locker pavilions offers keyless lockers to keep your personal items safe and dry. For our guests under 48”, some of our attractions require a life jacket. Life jackets are available around the park for easy access! We want to ensure our guests are having a good time in the fun swimming pools while also having the necessary equipment to be safe.
