Things to remember when visiting a water park
While water parks are incredibly fun, they often will drive parents into a nervous breakdown, especially if they are first time visitors. Many of the headaches can be avoided, however, if before you and your family go to a waterpark you remember these waterpark tips.
Getting to the park early is a must. You will get your money’s worth out of the day and will have better access to lockers and other first come first serve locations.
Do not bring unneeded items. You will not want to carry everything under the sun with you and lockers space is limited. Remember that things will get wet so don’t bring damageable items.
Your skin will not be happy with you if you forget to bring the proper sunscreen, sunblock or sun tan lotion. Make sure it is water-proof so it will last all day.
Bring sandals. The Rough concrete surfaces can be hard on your feet, plus who knows what types of feet have walked their before you.
While at the water park, your bathing suites are going to be put to the test. Make sure boys have a tight draw string and girls wear well-fitting one piece swimwear.
A light shirt is a good idea as well. When you are not in the water you will want to protect yourself from the sun as much as possible.
You will absolutely want a pair of sunglasses. The water will give off a glare that can cause eye strain. You might even consider getting a strap for your glasses so you don’t lose them in the wave pool, lazy river. (Compiled)
