At Soaky Mountain Waterpark we want to make sure everyone is having a great time in and on our water attractions so we thought we would get some waterpark safety tips from Dave our GM:
- It is important to remember that a child should never be unsupervised in or near water, even the zero-depth areas in our waterpark.
- Swimming is a valuable life skill. Enroll your children in swimming lessons taught by qualified instructors. If you don’t know how to swim, enroll with your children and make this a fun family learning event.
- Teach your children that they always need to swim with an adult and that there are no exceptions to this rule.
- Children who are unsure swimmers should always wear a U.S. Coast Guard-approved personal safety vest in the water. We have a limited number of vests available in multiple sizes throughout our Soaky Mountain Waterpark if you forget to bring yours from home.
- Never let your child dive into water unless they have been taught proper diving techniques, an adult is present, and the depth of the water is greater than 9 feet. At Soaky Mountain Waterpark we do not allow diving anywhere.
- When you are swimming, always be aware of where the rescue equipment and nearest telephone are located in the unfortunate event of an emergency.
- Teach your children to never go near a pool drain with or without a cover. Also always remember to pin up long hair when in the water.
