What is the Keep Kids Safe Program?

Splish Splash is a large, busy park. Sometimes, you may become separated from your child. Do not panic! Our Keep Kids Safe Program is designed to help reunite you with your child in a quick and efficient manner.

  • When you arrive at Splish Splash, go to the Guest Services office located right in the Main Plaza, and register for the program.
  • We will take down your name, your child’s name, and a contact phone number for a cell phone you have on you at the park.
  • You and your child will receive a wristband with matching numbers on them. If your child is separated from you, a team member will escort your child to Guest Services. We will have your name so we can page you, as well as your cell phone number that we will call.
  • This program is especially designed for young children, who oftentimes do not know their parent/guardians first name, and non-English speaking children, who may have difficulties communicating with our team members.

It is scary to be separated from your child. If you find yourself in this situation, please go immediately to Guest Services so we can help to reunite you with your child as quickly as possible.
