VIRGINIA GRAEME BAKER POOL AND SPA SAFETY ACT – On December 19th 2008 the Virginia Graeme Baker Pool and Spa Safety Act went into effect. This new law requires VGB Compliant Pool Drain Grates. We are VGB Compliant but please note in some applications these grates have a raised profile off the floor as mandated by the Law. 
Warning: Raised Grate – All of our raised grates have a red circle highlighting their location. They are designed to be stepped on but in shallow water situations they may pose a tripping hazard.

Weather Policy

KEEP YOUR WRISTBAND! We will close our attractions when unsafe conditions are present (as determined by Management in conjunction with our weather service). We will re-open when weather conditions in our immediate area are safe to do so (we cannot guarantee ideal weather conditions). In the event we cannot re-open our attractions within 75 minutes, you’ll receive a full or twilight ticket for a return visit (your wristband must be intact and on your wrist to be valid for a raincheck ). No refunds are issued regardless of time spent in the park.
