At WhiteWater World guest safety is our number one priority. The rides and attractions are designed to be enjoyed by people of all ages and abilities. Height and weight restrictions have been placed on some rides and guests must adhere to safety signage throughout the park. A team of highly trained lifeguards watch over guests and provide safety instructions and directions to ensure a safe and fun place for everyone to enjoy.

Lifeguards cannot watch everyone all the time, so parents must actively supervise their children. For safety reasons, pregnant women, guests with certain pre-existing health issues, guests with casts, footwear, eye wear or any any hard or sharp objects are not permitted on any slides. Some slides and attractions have a maximum combined weight limit for riders.
