Health and safety tips to protect against COVID-19

Click here for important operating calendar updates.

We want you to know the health and safety of our Guests and Team Members is our top priority. We are fully committed to creating the cleanest and safest environment possible for your visit.

The way we will operate this summer is significantly different from what we are all used to as we adapt to the new landscape created by COVID-19. While we are committed to enhanced standards in an effort to keep you as healthy and safe as possible, there remains an inherent and elevated risk of exposure to COVID-19 in any public place and any place where people are present. Please, read this page fully to ensure the best experience possible as you plan your visit and join us.

Planning a Visit


In order to comply with key health and safety measures surrounding limiting capacity, social distancing, and touch-free payment, planning a visit to Wet'n Wild Emerald Pointe will look different this summer.

  • Guests will need to RSVP for the date they wish to visit in advance, in addition to their regularly purchased Ticket or Season Pass.
  • If the date you wish to visit is not listed in our online calendar, we may have already reached our capacity limit for that date, in which case you will need to choose another day. If you are looking for a date later in the summer, please check back again as we will open more dates as the summer progresses.
  • Facial coverings are required for all Team Members and Guests aged two (2) and older. Facial coverings are NOT allowed on any attraction or pool and are not necessary while waiting in line or walking between attractions.

  • While we are committed to enhanced standards in an effort to keep you as healthy and safe as possible, there remains an inherent and elevated risk of exposure to COVID-19 in any public place and any place where people are present. People who do not show symptoms can still spread COVID-19. COVID-19 is an extremely contagious disease that can lead to severe illness and death. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, senior citizens and persons with underlying medical conditions are especially vulnerable and at higher risk for severe illness. Guests should familiarize themselves with guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and evaluate their risk in determining whether they should attend our facilities. If you or a family member are ill or think that you may be getting ill, please postpone your visit until you are well.

    By visiting our facility, you voluntarily assume all risks related to exposure to COVID-19.

    Wet'n Wild Emerald Pointe reserves the right to require a Guest to leave if the Guest is (i) not properly wearing an approved face covering, (ii) using profanity, offensive or threatening language towards our Team Members or other Guests and/or (iii) violating any other Park Rules.
