Entry into the park and the rides

You need to follow the age restriction when it comes to the water rides, as well as the recommended height levels before entering the park. When you’re entering the park, you need to have a valid and proper ID. More importantly, please don’t carry any outside food or beverages along with you into the park, as they will not be allowed.

Clothing

Since the park allows only buying costumes and not renting them, it’s best that you bring your own swimming costumes from home. Additionally, they need to be made of nylon or synthetic or other water-absorbing and quick-drying material. Also, don’t forget to pack an extra pair of clothes, lest what you’re wearing gets wet.

Safety and health

Once you’re inside the park, arrange all your belongings and valuables in the lockers in the changing room. Since you’re going to be outside all day long, it’s important to hydrate as well as protect your skin. So, carry a tube of waterproof sunscreen with an SPF of more than 20, as well as UV protective sunglasses or hats. Also, keep water bottles with you to stay hydrated.
