7 Ways to Get the Most Out of Your Water Park Experience

Picture this: It’s a perfect, hot summer day and all you want to do is stay cool while having fun. Santa Springs Water Park has you covered! Our water park opens at the end of May and we can’t wait to see you and your family make more timeless memories.

With rides, pools, slides, and fountains, our water park has a fun, relaxing, or thrilling adventure in store for everyone in your family. Read on for some tips and tricks from the experts on how to get the most out of your water park experience.

1. Plan Ahead

Start by planning ahead by checking out the outdoor water park hours and rules. Once you have the basics covered, explore what slides and other attractions the water park has to offer so that you can be sure to hit all your favorites on the day of your visit.

2. Choose a Day

Next, look into ticket availability so that you’re able to find a day to visit that works with your schedule. Weekdays tend to be less crowded, which means your family probably won’t have to wait in as many lines. Overcast days may also have shorter lines because of the possible potential for rain.

At Santa Springs, you can choose between two ticket options: a specific day or any day tickets. The any day ticket option allows for more flexibility and is a great way to plan ahead and allows wiggle room to stay home in the chance of unideal weather.

3. Consider a Season Pass

If your family frequently visits the water park or you’re looking to visit more often, consider purchasing a 2022 season pass. Not only does this pass allow you unlimited VIP access to Santa’s Village Amusement Park and Santa Springs Water Park, it also has additional benefits like a 10% discount on food and beverages, retail merchandise, and pre-booked birthday packages. It also has a 20% discount on cabana rentals and unlimited discounted guest passes. Season passes are a great deal if you’re looking to have fun all summer long!

4. Pack the Night Before

We have all been there: there’s nothing worse than the moment you realize you forgot something when you’ve already arrived at your destination. Avoid this stress by packing your bag the night before. This way, if you realize you forgot something after you pack, you can still grab it before you leave for the park the following morning.

Especially if you’re heading to the water park with kids, be sure to include bathing suits, towels, sunglasses, sunscreen, hats, a change of clothes, bandaids, swim diapers (if needed), a book, and lots of water for everyone. Lastly, don’t forget to pack your patience and remind your kids to have a positive attitude so everyone can have an enjoyable time.

5. Think about Renting a Cabana

A cabana consists of a private space with chairs and umbrellas in the water park. By renting a cabana, you’re able to have a home base while at the park. For parents, this location is a great place for relaxing and reading a book while keeping an eye on the kids.

A cabana also serves as a secure place to keep your things and ensures you have a shady space to sit when you’re ready to get out of the sun. This water park for kids wants to make sure your children are always able to find you, and a cabana is a great way to guarantee this! Choose from four different styles depending on your group’s needs for the day.

6. Take Breaks During the Day

Though it’s tough to squeeze in a break when you’re busy having lots of fun, it’s important to remember that your body needs rest, food, water, and some time out of the sun. Visit our dining options throughout the day to stay energized.

We have everything from sandwiches, burgers, and pizza to sundaes, funnel cakes, and salads. For the adults in your group, we serve frappes and beer as well. We promise you won’t go hungry on our watch!

7. Invite Enough Adults

If your children tend to have different interests and like to split up, be sure to enlist another adult to join the adventure so you’re able to make all the kiddos happy. By doing this, you can also get a bit more one-on-one time with each of your kids. This summer is the season to make amazing memories with your little ones!

Water parks are a great way to beat the heat of the summer. Ready to spend the season under the sun at Santa Springs? Visit us online or contact us for more information.
