Water Park Safety

Water parks are a great way to relax and cool down on a hot summer day. For families that love the outdoors, these venues offer a fun place to spend an afternoon or a destination spot for travel. According to reports, approximately 80 million people attend water parks each year. However, there are some serious safety precautions that patrons should take before visiting one of these attractions.

In addition to dangers regarding the rides themselves, there is also a chance you could contract a disease from other patrons if there are unsanitary conditions.

Tips for Safety

The following tips can help you protect yourself from injury and infection at a water park:

  • Adhere to ride recommendations regarding age, height, weight, and serious medical conditions. These rules exist to keep all patrons safe, not to discriminate.
  • Dress appropriately for the park. Wear water shoes to protect your feet from sharp objects at the bottom of a pool.
  • Wear sunscreen at all times.
  • If you have a child who wears a diaper, be sure to outfit them with a waterproof one.
  • Try not to swallow the pool water. This is an incredibly easy way to put your health at risk.
  • Practice good hygiene before, during, and after use of the pool.

Though these tips are a great way to keep you and your family safe, the water park owners also have a responsibility to their patrons to maintain clean, hygienic conditions and eliminate hazards of any kind. Management must adhere to safety guidelines, hire only certified lifeguards and provide optimal water quality, among other mandated requirements.
