How to Stay Safe and Have Fun at Waterparks

By Antoinette Ayana




Waterparks offer a great deal of fun in the sun, of course, but you need to take the proper steps to make sure you and your loved ones stay safe and hydrated on your next visit. Here are some of the most important things to remember for safety, comfort, and fun.

Dress Appropriately

Since you will be outside for the majority of the day, you will want to protect you and your children from the shining sun. For the most protection, have everyone wear a hat and a loose t-shirt, as well as water shoes and sunglasses. If you are bringing younger children, keep an eye on them to make sure they are not getting tired or overheated.

It is also important that you bring plenty of sunscreen and apply it on a regular basis. Put it on 30 minutes before you leave home and then re-apply it every time someone gets out of the water. Even waterproof sunscreen needs to be re-applied every 80-90 minutes if you have gotten wet and dried yourself off with a towel. You will also want to consider using a lip balm that has an SPF of 15 or higher.

Keep Hydrated

It is easy to become dehydrated quickly when you are running around in the sun, and it is even easier not to notice if you are getting cooled off periodically by water slides. Be sure you and your children are drinking plenty of liquids throughout the day. Stay away from any caffeinated beverages, however, because they dehydrate you more quickly.

Close Observation

You should always keep a close eye on your children when visiting waterparks, even if there is a lifeguard present. Either be in the water with them or watch them carefully. Lifeguards are responsible for scanning large areas and cannot see everything all the time.

Pay Attention to the Rules

All waterparks have specific safety rules and regulations, sure be to read all posted signage. Different slides and pools will be appropriate for different age groups, so make sure your small child does not get on a slide intended for older children and adults. Check all regulations related to age, height, ability to swim and medical condition. If you have any questions whatsoever, talk to a staff member or a lifeguard.

These are just some of the things you will want to keep in mind at waterparks to ensure you and you're family stay safe, hydrated, and having fun.
