What is the Blizzard Beach Rain Policy? | Easily Explained

When you're visiting a water park, rain is one of the few things that you can't control, that can still impact your experience.

In this page, we will go over the Blizzard Beach rain policy, if it closes when it rains, if they offer refunds and the pros and cons of going on a rainy day.

    Does Blizzard Beach Close When it Rains?

    Blizzard Beach does not close when it rains, in fact nothing changes as it is typical for Florida to drop in its famous afternoon showers. However, they can close due to severe thunderstorms (thunder and lightning approaching) that last throughout the day, but ultimately it is at the park's discretion.

    If thunderstorms are nearby, they will temporarily suspend rides until the weather improves, and then resume rides when the weather clears up.

    During this time visitors may be asked to evacuate ride areas, pools, and dining areas to seek shelter.

    Does Blizzard Beach Offer Rain Checks?

    If severe weather conditions continue and the park closes with less than 4 hours of attractions being open that day, visitors could possibly be eligible for a rain check.

    This ticket allows visitors to return without purchasing an additional ticket. This perk allows you to shop with confidence knowing that you'll be able to experience the water park no matter what happens.

    Pros and Cons of the Rain

    Perks of Going on a Rainy Day

    If you don't mind getting wet, lines will be minimal as most visitors will clear out of the park almost immediately. 

    This leads to incredibly short lines, and you'll easily be able to ride the same ride back to back.

    Cons of Going on a Rainy Day

    The downside however is that if thunderstorms begin forming, you're risking having to pause or possibly even end your trip.
