ABOUT SPLASHIFAX

Splashifax Waterparks are an exhilarating and playful water experience for both adults and kids, full of bouncing, slipping, sliding, jumping, swimming, and laughing non-stop on a giant, inflatable water playground!

Our locations run rain or shine and offer slippy, drippy fun with floating inflatables, bouncies, slides, and our re-donk-ulous giant Unicorn who gets guests laughing as they free-fall into refreshing water. Experience nature and the great outdoors, all while standing soaking wet 20 feet above the water.

Cannonballing into action, we splash our community partners with financial support that leaves them afloat in new opportunities. With over 100 young employees, our parks offer a laughter-fueled summer job experience centred around safety, personal growth and excellent customer service.

No joke – our parks are a physical experience. Each park is equipped with comfortable land-lover amenities like picnic tables, washroom and changing facilities, and ample space to watch and laugh from shore. 120-minute sessions are booked online before guests arrive.

Let’s have a splashy summer!

See you in 2023!

SAFETY

Splashifax Waterparks is a physical-activity-based experience. We work hard to laugh hard, but we know safety is no laughing matter. A safe guest experience starts with well-trained staff and responsive health and safety procedures. We are serious about our guests’ safety so they can focus on fun.

INCLUSION

Our vision is bigger than our waterpark. We know that tackling obstacles takes a community. Within our waterparks, we aim to build spaces where individuals and families from different walks of life can have fun while showing up as their true selves. We also work closely with local community organizations to provide free and low-cost access and find ways to give back to those places that are bringing people together. Everyone deserves to laugh hard and we welcome all styles of laughter.

SUSTAINABILITY

Splashifax Waterparks embrace environmental science and sustainable business practices that improve accessible, nature-based, community infrastructure. We collaborate with, and give back to local environmental stewardship organizations, to keep the beautiful spaces we work in clean and healthy.

MEET KRISTINA

We love to jokingly call Kristina Lemieux (she/her) “the boss of all”, because she really is (as the CEO of Splashifax)! Born and raised in Treaty 6 in a small town called Drayton Valley, she had no idea she would later be spreading joy through giant water inflatables!

Kristina had an over 20-year career in the non-profit, performing arts industry as a manager and producer in Edmonton, Nanaimo, Vancouver and Toronto. She had her creative hand in a remarkable variety of arts, from drag opera and surprise cabarets, to a tour from coast to coast and down to Mexico!

She now lives in Saint John, New Brunswick, and loves how her current role at Splashifax allows her to have such a positive impact on individuals of varied ages and all walks of life. She is grateful to be able to share the wild and wonderful experience of being on top of a 50 foot unicorn with others! She is passionate about creating and fostering safe and joyful spaces.

Kristina has been described as having a dry wit. She mostly laughs at herself, but also quite often at her dog, Charlie. She is thrilled to be able to facilitate the fits of laughter enjoyed by so many at Splashifax.

MEET JESS

Jessica Urquhart (she/her) is your friendly Director of Customer Experience at Splashifax!

She was born and raised in New Brunswick in a little community called Bloomfield, about a 20 minute drive to the closest town. And just look at her now – making sure Splashifax guests leave absolutely exhausted from smiling and laughing so hard!

Many of Jessica’s happiest memories are from her rural childhood – playing in the dirt in her backyard with her brothers, s’mores by the bonfire with her dad, and playing in the sun with her mom and a sprinkler.

After graduating high school, she worked in professional kitchens in neighbouring cities and worked her way up to being a Red Seal Chef. From there she became a Sous Chef, then an Executive Chef, and then the General Manager of a restaurant in Saint John, NB. She then decided to make a change and moved to Halifax where she has created a new life for herself full of new friends, a rescue dog named Stuart, and of course, a new (and splashy!) career.

Being able to play a larger role in the HRM community through Splashifax in the summer of 2021 brought Jessica so much joy. It is a deep pleasure for her to be part of a team that upholds the values of social inclusion, environmental sustainability, as well as pure, unabashed fun.

MEET JONATHON AND DAVE!

What do you get when you combine:

  • a dynamic friend duo
  • a stunning water location
  • an intense communal need for fun
  • and the world’s largest unicorn floatie?

A fantastical place of floatie fun, and the story of Splashifax!

The story began in November 2018 when Jonathon first had the idea of how an inflatable water playground could start a wave of fun. Jonathon’s background was in the drier area of real estate and development, but he had also previously built, opened, and operated a trampoline park. And as an avid sailor and water sports enthusiast, Jonathon was no stranger to fun-making in the water.

Speeding ahead to late January 2020, Jonathon was staying in Halifax with his good friend Dave. Jonathon was struck by the beautiful location and community of the Halifax region. When Jonathon suddenly asked Dave if he wanted to start a local waterpark with him, Dave’s response was “Hmm…cool…not no…”. Two weeks later, “not no” became “let’s giv’r!” and Dave’s suggestion that “we need a really awesome feature attraction” gave birth to Splashifax’s iconic giant unicorn and familiar tugboat.

With Dave’s retail and logistics experience, and Jonathon’s development and play park experience, this dynamic duo was ready to make a splash. In an instance of unfortunate timing shared by so many new business-owners world-wide, the deposit for the waterpark was paid on the same day that the first case of COVID-19 was announced in Canada, so the venture was delayed until 2021.

When Splashifax opened in July 2021, Halifax was ready to dive into the much-needed excitement and fun of having its first floating playground and waterpark!

GET SPLASHIN’

See you in 2023!

GIVING BACK

Behind Splashifax’s wildly wet and wacky sense of play is a serious commitment to helping our community. ‘Cuz who says you can’t spread joy in more ways than one?!

Our employees participate in environmental care by using downtime on their shifts to pick up litter and ensure the areas in and around our parks are clean and beautiful. We also conduct regular shore cleanups on the bodies of water on which we work.

Of course, money is also helpful, so Splashifax donates 1% of our profits to a collection of organizations that especially matches our values. Our “Round-up Program” makes it easy for guests to join us in the giving spirit by simply rounding up their ticket purchase, and then we match guests’ contributions (in addition to the 1% of profits)!

This year we will be sharing our profits with the following organizations:

Water First – The water crisis in Indigenous communities is unacceptable. Water First works with Indigenous communities to resolve local water challenges through education, training, and meaningful collaboration.

Level – Working to drive change by disrupting prejudice, building empathy and advancing human rights, Level’s guiding belief is that if communities are empowered to understand, use, and shape the law, then they can become active participants in breaking down barriers to justice.

Coastal Action – Coastal Action is helping to conserve the species and ecosystems that make southwest Nova Scotia such a special place, as well as supporting our environmental education and outreach efforts.

Splashifax works with local community groups and non-profit organizations to offer free, or low-cost opportunities for young people to laugh hard, as well as fun employment opportunities for youth. If you are looking for such opportunities, please reach out HERE.

If you need tickets for a fundraising event we’d love to hear from you to see if we can help! Please fill out the form located HERE and we will get back to you on May 1, July 1, or January 1.

See you in 2023!
