Why Water Shoes?

Most guests will simply wear flip flops to the park, but water shoes are a very underrated tool to wear throughout the day. 

Although the cast members will spray water on the walkways to help prevent your feet from getting burnt, the concrete can still heat up quickly as the sun rises, and will leave barefoot guests scrambling to find their flip flops.

Water shoes are flexible and made with mesh material for enhanced breathability, which helps keep feet cool.

They also provide insulation, keeping feet warm in cold water.

Bring a Towel

You are able to bring your own towel into the park.

Towels are also available for rental at the main locker facility at an additional cost.

However, rental towels are on a first-come, first-served basis, so it's a better idea to bring your own towels to ensure that you will be able to dry off.


Bag Inspection

You should be aware that all bags, backpacks and packages will be inspected prior to a guest being granted access to the park.

Forget Something at Home?

You're in luck as sunscreen, swimwear, beachwear, towels, gifts and other sundries are available for purchase at the water park.

What to Leave at Home

  • Hard Coolers
  • Alcohol
  • Inflatable Pool Toys like rafts and tubes
  • Water Guns

There will be plenty to entertain you and your guests at Blizzard Beach, and there won't be a need to bring your own toys into the water park.
