Park Rules

We Take Your Safety Seriously

Rapids Water Park is a high activity park. Every attraction has been designed with a high regard for safety. However, like any recreational activity, the possibility of injury will always exist.

We want you to have fun at the park, but for your safety and that of your fellow guests, we request that you follow the park rules set out below.

Some of our slides and amusements require a level of physical exertion, may cause your body to contort and/or may impact your body with hard or semi-hard surfaces or the water. If you are pregnant, have back, heart or other physical limitations, please refrain from such activities. If you have a question about whether a slide or amusement is right for you, please ask.


If you hurt yourself while at the park, please let us know immediately and certainly before you leave the park.

Please read and follow the rules and requirements of each of the park’s slides and amusements.

No refunds or exchanges; tickets will not be replaced if lost, stolen, or unused. If the park closes due to inclement weather only those who have a valid purchase receipt will be given a Sunshine Ticket. Please see below for complete details.

Sunshine Guarantee:

In the event of rain, Rapids Water Park attractions will remain open.  If there is severe weather or lightning in the area, guests will be asked to exit the water until the weather passes.  If the weather conditions cause all of the rides to close for a continuous 2 hours; or if the park suspends ride operation three times during the day of your visit; and you are leaving for the day – a Sunshine Ticket will be issued for a return visit during the same operating season. To receive a Sunshine Ticket, please present your ticket stub, ticket receipt, or online proof of purchase to the Front Gate office located at the main entrance as you exit the park.  Season Pass holders and Complimentary Tickets are not eligible to receive a Sunshine Ticket. Once rides reopen, Sunshine Tickets will no longer be issued.  Sunshine Tickets will not be issued due to weather if the park closes for the day during the last 60 minutes of park operation.  No cash refunds.  No refunds for parking or locker rentals.
