Here are ten tips for a great water park visit, even if you aren’t visiting Schlitterbahn Waterparks!
Water Park Tips
1. Arrive early, before noon, or later in the afternoon to avoid crowds. Plan your visit on less crowded days, such as Monday through Thursday.
2. Pack a lunch! Check to see if your water park allows coolers (Schlitterbahn does!!) or find a picnic area outside the park for a quick meal. Glass and alcohol are usually prohibited both inside and outside park grounds.
3. If your group splits up, be sure to have a set meeting place and time.
4. Swim shoes or flip flops! There will be some hot spots without shade or outdoor carpet.
5. Suncreen – Water rides remove the best in sunscreen. Apply, ride, repeat.
6. Always keep an eye on small children. Keep toddlers in shallow water.
7. If someone can’t swim, make them wear a life jacket at all times near the water.
8. If you have a child who isn’t potty trained, make sure they wear approved swim diapers. And, bring extras!
9. Wear a good fitting swimsuit that won’t come open or off when going down the slides.
10. Leave valuables at home!
