I’m under the age of 18. Can my parents drop me off with my friends so that we can use the Water Park for the day?
No. Your safety is of utmost importance to us. You must be 18 years of age, or be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian in order to remain in the park and use our facilities.
I’m under the age of 25. Why do I need a $200 damage deposit when booking a site at the Resort?
Rather than discriminate against younger guests and deny booking with them, we take a preauthorized deposit in the amount of $200 for security reasons on check in day. This is to protect the investment of our company property. It is only processed if malicious or purposeful damage is done to the Resort or the enjoyment of others. Remember that the Resort is a family park, and while enjoyment is encouraged, discretion and moderation are required by all patrons to ensure that everyone has a fun, safe and enjoyable vacation. The damage deposit is held in preauthorization pattern on your credit card during your holiday. It should never appear on your statement unless detailed in the above circumstances. If you do not own a credit card, the Resort will accept the $200 deposit by cash or debit.
