Safety & Rules

Splashifax Waterparks is a very physical, swimming-based experience. A safe guest experience starts with well-trained staff and responsive health and safety procedures. We are serious about your safety so you can focus on fun.

Please note that we do not recommend that those who are pregnant, have an injury, or a health condition use our park.

Please adhere to the following rules to ensure the safety of others as well as yourself. Guests found to be breaking these rules may be removed from the park without refund.

  • Listen to the Lifeguards

  • Feet first

  • One at a time up ladders. The ladders can turn into a slide very quickly with just one slip of the foot or hand, so one at a time is mandatory to keep from turning other participants into bowling pins.

  • Look before you jump or slide. Make sure to look for other guests before you jump or slide.

  • No chasing and we do not recommend running. Surfaces are wet and slippery.

  • The use of drugs and/or alcohol is prohibited.

  • You must be a strong swimmer: The park is designed for strong and confident swimmers.

  • Everyone wears a lifejacket – at all times.

  • Absolutely no swimming under the inflatables. The inflatables are massive structures held together by large chains. Any attempt to swim underneath may result in serious injury or death. Attempts to swim under any inflatable will also result in immediate eviction from the park, without refund.

  • Clear out quickly from the bottom of slides and jumping zones. Once you’ve hit the water at the bottom of a slide or jumping zone, please proceed away from that area as quickly as possible. Refrain from swimming in these areas.

  • Do not jump down onto the inflatables. Except for designated jumping pillows.

  • Those aged 12 and under need a guardian on the park with them. Yes, this means getting in the water and joining in on the fun!

Should I be Swim-Ready?2023-06-19T23:02:35-03:00

We recommend showing up ready to go. Though we have limited space to change, coming all ready in your swim gear will make your check-in experience just that much smoother.

Do I Have to Swim?2023-06-19T23:03:56-03:00

Splashifax is a water attraction placed in a body of deep water. Everyone must be able to swim where you can’t touch the bottom in depths that may exceed 25 feet. You must also be able to swim 20 metres in a life jacket.

Should I Have Something On My Feet?2023-06-19T23:02:46-03:00

We require all guests on the park to wear grip socks. We do provide these at a cost of $5.00. Another option is to wear water shoes. We do not allow water shoes with black soles as they mark the equipment.

I Heard I Have to Remove My Jewellery?2023-06-19T23:04:07-03:00

Splashifax is a park full of air, which is so fun, but can also POP. We require that rings and sharp earrings be removed before enjoying the park. If you cannot remove your rings, we can duct tape them to your finger to not only ensure that they do not puncture the park, but to make sure your valuable item stays on your finger and does not end up in the lake. We encourage the removal of watches, necklaces, and anything you find valuable as once it ends up in the water, the employees cannot retrieve it for you.

Is There a Space for Me to Put My Things?2023-06-19T23:02:54-03:00

We recommend leaving your valuables in your locked vehicle before checking in. We do not have cubbies this year, but we do have picnic tables down at Splashifax. We are not responsible for the safety of your items.

Can I be Under the Influence?2023-06-19T23:04:14-03:00

We do not condone the use of alcohol and/or drugs. Being under the influence of any substance makes this fun experience dangerous for both you, and those around you.
