While Jungle Rapids is committed to entertaining families from all over the country, we view the safety of our employees and patrons as our top priority. We go to great lengths to only provide safe attractions for your patronage and we carefully establish rules and guidelines to insure the safety of you and your family. We do not bend any safety rules in the name of customer service. Age, height, and weight, restrictions are set with the specific purpose of maintaining a safe environment for your loved ones and the loved ones of others. When visiting our park we ask that anyone under the age of (16) be supervised by a parent, responsible adult, or care giver. As the responsible supervisor of any children you might accompany, we ask that you become familiar with the child’s swimming abilities before entering the Wave-pool. Any child under 48 inches in height is required to wear a life jacket. We have a good number of life jackets, but cannot guarantee that a busy day will not empty our inventory. Feel free to bring a personal life jacket for your child to insure he/she does not have to wait for the next one available. Other rules to be aware of while enjoying the water park are No headfirst sliding, No diving, and absolutely No running. There are rules and guidelines for dry or non-Water Park attractions as well. These rules will be explained clearly before the beginning of any activity, we simply ask for your attention while the rules are explained and your compliance as you participate.
