Policies

Weather Policy

Your safety is our top priority at Ravine Waterpark. For that reason rides and attractions may close temporarily during severe weather conditions. Once conditions have improved rides and attractions will reopen. Rain checks will be available upon request to guests exiting the park if ALL attractions have been closed for at least 2 hours. Guest must provide a same-day wristband at the ticket office in order to obtain a rain check. No rain checks are issued for season pass holders.

Rain checks will not be provided if the park closes with 2 hrs of our published closing time. CASH REFUNDS WILL NOT BE GIVEN. Once attractions reopen following a temporary closure due to weather, rain checks will no longer be offered.

Safety – What To Know Before You Go!

The Park offers a variety of water-based activities for all ages and all swim levels. Height restrictions are posted for all attractions and enforced. Children under 13 years of age may NOT be at the waterpark without adult supervision. The waterpark does not assume any responsibility or liability for unattended minors. Only you know your own, your child’s, or anyone you are supervising level of swimming skills. We strongly recommend all Guests under 48″ or who are weak or non-swimmers wear provided life jackets where appropriate.

In the wave pool, all guests under 48″ are REQUIRED to wear a life jacket and be accompanied by an adult. We insist that parents keep their children within arms-reach for their close supervision on all water activities. Free life jackets are available throughout the park at no charge. When in doubt wear a life jacket!

Diving is not permitted in any pool or attraction at the park. No running in the Park please. Proper swimwear must be worn on all rides and attractions.

No street clothes and no bathing attire with buckles, belts, rivets, metal or cut-off jeans permitted. For guest safety, no masks, snorkels or swim fins please. See dress code below.

Guests with Disabilities

Welcome!  Our goal is to accommodate our guests with disabilities to the fullest extent possible and in compliance with law.  Most of our attractions and restaurants are accessible to guests with disabilities.

If you (or someone you are responsible for) have a particular disability or special need, we encourage you to contact the waterpark and speak with guest services at least 48 hours in advance of your visit to better assist us in preparing for your visit.  If you have a group of disabled persons, a week’s advance notice would greatly help us to better serve you.

Guest Services: 805-237-8500 or Click Here.

While the Park complies with federal and state disability and accommodation laws, there may be some rides or attractions, activities, or areas of the waterpark, which may not be safely accessible to all persons.  At the Park, safety is the only consideration that takes precedence over fun!  Thrill rides, by their nature, create forces and speeds that may not be acceptable or tolerable to some guests and may cause injury to some riders with known or unknown pre-existing conditions. For your protection, many of the rides and other attractions at the waterpark incorporate safety systems that are designed to accommodate people with certain characteristics such as average physical stature and body proportion.  These safety systems may place restrictions on the ability of certain individuals to safely experience an attraction.

In general you should only ride a thrill ride, or participate in certain attractions, if you are in good health. Do not ride if you know or suspect that you may be pregnant, have high blood pressure, heart, neck or body problems, motion sickness, recent surgery, or any other medical condition that may be affected by the features of the ride. You should not ride if you have any impairment or condition that would prevent the intended use of seating and safety restrains as provided, or an inability to follow any safety requirement.
Please note that the waterpark does NOT provide medication, insulin, or other medical treatments or devices, other than basic first aid; please plan your visit accordingly.

Food & Beverage

The Park has a wide assortment of foods and beverages available, including bottled water.  Contact the Park if you desire more specific information not available on these web pages.

Allergies?  The park is more than happy to provide guests with ingredients lists which are provided to us by the food suppliers we use.  However, as much as we would like to accommodate guests with food allergies, we are not the food manufacturers/suppliers (we get all food and beverage product from third parties), and as such, we regret to inform you that THE PARK CANNOT, AND DOES NOT, MAKE ANY REPRESENTATIONS OR GUARANTIES WHATSOEVER REGARDING THE ALLERGY-FREE CONTENTS OF ANY FOODS OR BEVERAGES, OR THE SAFETY THEREOF (ESPECIALLY WITH REGARD TO ANY ALLERGIES).  At a minimum, guests with allergy concerns should avoid any foods or beverages unless they are packaged, and you are 100% confident in the manufacturer/supplier which has provided the waterpark with such food or beverage.  Foods that are in any way unpackaged, prepared, or handled by the Park (as opposed to packaged goods, provided to you in a sealed package), have a higher risk of contamination with other products containing allergens.

Personal Food, Beverage and Coolers.

In any event, guests may bring personal foods into the park, to the extent that they are medically necessary (e.g., for diabetics, baby formula for infants, gluten-free foods, or allergy-safe foods for allergies).

Check back for additional park Food & Beverage restrictions.

Operational Policies

  • Prices and operating schedule are subject to change without notice.
  • All attractions are subject to temporary maintenance, safety or inclement weather shutdowns.
  • Season Pass holders must present their passes to gain entrance to the Ravine Waterpark (season passes are NOT transferable for others to use). Season Pass entry is only valid once a day. Guests who leave the waterpark and plan to return must keep their wristband on their wrist to be able to return to the park on the same day. When guests return to the Park, they must enter through the front gate with a proper wristband.
  • These Park Rules & Policies are not comprehensive, and are subject to change without notice. The Park may have numerous additional rules and procedures applicable to guests which, if not followed, may subject the guest to ejection without refund.

Photography – Personal & Commercial

Personal.  Guests are welcome to take pictures of themselves, their friends and family, their group, and the scenery in general, for their own personal use.    However, NO cameras of any kind (including cell phones) are allowed on any ride or attraction, because such items pose a safety hazard.
In addition, no one is permitted to take photographs of others who object, or which violate another’s privacy, rights to publicity, or which are harassing, stalking, or threatening.  Image taking or recording is strictly prohibited, under all circumstances, in bathrooms, changing rooms, and locker areas; violators may be held for law enforcement, and are subject to arrest and prosecution.

The Waterpark May Take and Use Images & Video of All Guests.  The waterpark at all times reserves the right to videotape patrons, and take still images, and to utilize those images and videos for any reason, including marketing, advertising, promotion, on social media, live streaming on the Internet, for safety and security, for documentation as evidence in a legal or criminal matter or other investigation, for news reporting, and otherwise in an unrestricted manner for legitimate purposes.  All property ownership of such materials, and copyright in an d to all such materials, shall belong exclusively to the Ravine Waterpark in perpetuity, without any compensation or other consideration to any guest or other person in, on or around the waterpark property.

Commercial.  Commercial photography of any kind is strictly prohibited (including without limitation, still or moving images, modeling shots, student films, comedy routines, documentaries, commercials, TV news, major motion picture films, Internet soap operas, reality TV, actor demo reels, submission videos for reality TV, footage as part of a school project, documentation of stunts and dangerous activities (whether for commercial use or not), promotional videos, music videos, cable programs, etc.), except where prior, written permission has been obtained from the Ravine Waterpark’s owner in the form of a contract signed by an executive within Park’s corporate office.

In any event where unauthorized video or images has been uploaded to any social media channel, Ravine Waterpark shall have the unrestricted and exclusive right and authority to have such materials removed.  Any materials which defame the Ravine Waterpark may result in legal action for damages, and the waterpark shall have absolute right and authority to obtain both temporary and permanent injunctions from the further use or dissemination of such material, in all channels and all mediums of communications, throughout the world, whether now known or hereafter devised, and to obtain all materials and obtain an order for the destruction of all such materials.

Security at the Park

The waterpark strives to make your experience a happy one, in all respects.  Unfortunately, there is no way that we can erase the unkind intent of some people.  Therefore, please understand that the waterpark cannot, and does not, guarantee your personal security or that of your personal property (even if placed in a locker), and in no event will the waterpark be held liable for your lost, stolen or damaged possessions. If you need to store your possessions, ask the waterpark staff about lockers.  If you have loose items while wanting to go on a ride, please have a friend or family member hold them or put such possessions in a locker.

It is the unfortunate truth that at any amusement park, or at any place in society, no amount of security can prevent people from acting in a criminal manner if they are intent on so acting.  The waterpark can only try to reasonably watch over the premises and the people therein, and respond in a professional manner to any security threat or incident.

If you experience a security issue, please notify Ravine Waterpark staff; we are here to assist you.

Children – Notice to Parents & Guardians

Children under 13 years of age may NOT be at the Park without adult supervision.   Regardless, we strongly recommend that minors (under 18) be accompanied by an adult.
The Park does not assume any responsibility or liability for unattended minors; children and the behavior of all minors are the sole responsibility of their parent(s) or guardian(s), and parents/guardians may be held legally liable for all acts of the children under their care.  Please make sure that minors act responsibly, and in consideration of others, at all times. For example:  No running; no twirling on banisters; no climbing on structures, or sitting on fences; no “horseplay” (e.g., wrestling, gymnastics, playing “tag,” throwing rocks or other items at each other, etc.) especially on rides, ride lines, in food areas or around other guests.
Please remember that the waterpark is NOT a daycare facility.  Anyone choosing to leave their minors at an amusement park is still responsible for them—in no event does the waterpark assume that responsibility.  Minors in violation of waterpark rules may be ejected or detained, in the waterpark’s discretion, as evaluated in a case-by-case basis.  While the waterpark may in good faith attempt to contact a minor’s parent/guardian to have them picked up, this is done out of concern and courtesy, but in no event will the waterpark be held responsible if a minor leaves the waterpark, or for anything occurring after a minor has left the waterpark grounds.

We greatly appreciate your help in responsibly monitoring and controlling any minors in your care.

If you cannot locate your child in the waterpark, our waterpark staff is here to assist you.  Please feel free to alert a staff member who will be happy to assist you in locating your child.  That said, please note that we do not page guests.  We recommend that as you enter the waterpark, you decide on a meeting place should you be separated from any minors under your care.

Weather Safety

Weather is unpredictable, and can pose certain health and safety hazards. Only you can make informed decisions about weather forecasts and whether or not any given day would be appropriate for a waterpark visit.

Guidelines:

  • Wet weather (including mist, humidity, rainstorms, etc.) makes surfaces slippery.  On wet days, please exercise extra-caution when moving about the waterpark, going up or down stairs (hold handrails), entering or exiting rides, using bathrooms, etc.  Do not step directly into streaming or puddled water, since it may carry mud or other debris, posing a slip hazard.
  • Storms (wind, rain, lighting, hail, etc.) tend to result in people scrambling for shelter, including in buildings or racing to get back to their car.  People running in stormy weather pose slip/trip/fall hazard for themselves and others.  People may be darting through parking lots, or around corners.  Please proceed in an orderly and controlled fashion when seeking shelter from weather situations.
  • In certain severe weather situations, the Park may shut down rides, and direct people to certain areas, or direct people to leave the waterpark altogether.  Please make sure to obey all waterpark instructions, if any are given.
  • Hot weather poses a risk of sunburn and heat illnesses.  People may not realize how much they are being impacted by hot weather until they develop heat illnesses.

Some guidelines for heat:

  • Always stay hydrated with water.  Alcohol, overeating, and/or eating/drinking large amounts of sugar, are not advised. Paso Robles summers can get very hot.
  • Use sunscreen on all exposed areas of your body.  Re-apply frequently.  If you have been in the sun for prolonged periods, or if it is especially hot and/or humid, take breaks as needed from your activities, and relax in a shaded area to allow your body to cool off.  Drink water to hydrate.
  • Heat Exhaustion: Look for the warning signs of heat exhaustion, which include fatigue, nausea, headaches, weakness, slowed or weakened heartbeat, clammy skin and drenching sweat (often while feeling cool or cold), fainting or dizziness, excessive thirst, confusion or anxiety.   Although heat exhaustion is generally not fatal, it can be—so you must take this issue seriously and take remedial measures by getting to a cool place and sipping water.  Waterpark staff should be alerted to any heat illness issue you or a person in your group may be suffering from; we are here to assist you.
  • Warning – Heat Stroke: Heat stroke can be fatal!  It is the advanced form of heat-related illness, which can occur suddenly, particularly in extremely hot weather.  If you or someone in your group experiences symptoms of heat stroke, GET IMMEDIATE MEDICAL ATTENTION by alerting our staff and/or calling 9-1-1.  Symptoms include mental confusion/delirium, loss of consciousness, very rapid or dramatically slowed heartbeat, rapid rise in body temperature, drenching sweats that turn into a marked decrease in sweating accompanied by hot/flushed skin, shortness of breath, blood in urine, and/or convulsions.

Safety 1st!

Safety is always #1 at the Ravine Waterpark.  Our goal is to accommodate all guests to enable them to fully enjoy our waterpark.

Park Safety Standards – General Principles.  Please understand that people may be excluded or removed from certain rides, attractions, areas of the park, and/or certain activities, in the interests of safety as determined by waterpark personnel.

This may include, but is not limited to, concerns with sight-disabled people who need adequate eyesight to safely engage in an activity, height and weight restrictions, mobility and/or use and existence of all limbs in a stable and coordinated manner, a clear and alert mind which is unaffected by mental disability or other hindrance, being under the influence of any substances (whether legal or illegal, drugs or medications, alcohol, or any other chemicals and substances), signs of heat illness, any loose headwear or clothing or apparel which may damage property or pose a hazard to a guest or others, and whether or not a person may appear to be ill or injured or otherwise unable to safely participate.

For Your Safety:

  • Pay Attention. Please watch where you are going.  Amusement parks are crowded places with many distractions, elevations in surfaces, landscaping, tree roots, rocks, man-made structures, patron possessions left lying around the park or in pathways, etc; this is the open, obvious and inherent nature of an amusement or water park environment.  As such, the park disclaims all liability, and shall not be held liable in any manner whatsoever, for any trip, slip, and/or fall you and/or any minor(s) in your care may suffer, Nor for ANY INJURIES CAUSED FROM walking OR STUMBLING into objects or structures, OR FALLING OVER OBJECTS OR STRUCTURES.  By entering the park, you automatically agree to this waiver of all such liability.
  • No Running (it poses a collision, trip, slip and fall hazard).
  • Slippery Surfaces. Surfaces may be slippery or wet—especially in bathrooms, on and around any water attractions, and in food areas.
  • Dress for Safety. No loose/oversized/baggy clothing or accessories which are not thoroughly secured to your person, or any carried items, on any ride or attraction which may pose a hazard.  Prohibited items may include, without limitation (depending on the specific ride), any form of headwear, scarves, long belts, fringed materials, high heels, loose footwear, wigs, purses, backpacks, or any dangling fabric.  If you choose to wear unstable, loose or ill-fitting shoes to the Park (e.g., high heels, flip-flops, clogs, loose sandals or Crocs or slip-ons, etc.), realize that you are creating a hazard for yourself in a crowded park, and you may not be able to partake in certain attractions.  We urge you to wear secure, comfortable footwear.
  • No Monkeying Around. No climbing on or hanging from, any structures, trees, lamp posts, wiring, door frames, rain gutters, etc.
  • Be Seated – Carefully. Benches and chairs are for sitting only—not jumping on or over, nor standing on.  If you are over 200 lbs or heavy, proceed with caution when sitting, and check the chair/bench’s stability.  Multiple persons should never share the same single-person chair.
  • No Sitting on Fences or Railings.  Fences, railings and banisters should never be leaned on, sat upon, stood upon, twirled on, or jumped/vaulted over.  Doing so causes damage to waterpark property and people may get injured.
  • Stop! Parking is reserved for Safe Drivers.Parking lots are, by their very nature, hazardous places where you must act cautiously and pay attention at all times for yourself and those in your care (minors, elderly needing assistance, disabled persons, etc.).  Please drive slowly and carefully at all times (including into and out of parking spaces, or when entering or exiting the lot), realizing that children may be running about, that elderly or disabled may not hear or see your car, etc.  The waterpark shall not be liable for theft, break-ins, car collisions or other property damage, and the park has zero liability for anything occurring on public roads.
  • Hands Free. Electronic devices, including photographic or recording equipment (e.g., phones of any kind, camcorders or cameras of any kind, flashlights, radios, iPods, etc.), are not permitted on any ride.  Phones, cameras and other devices pose a serious safety hazard on rides.  Depending on the ride, all such devices must (in the waterpark’s discretion) either be completely secure on one’s person, or may not be allowed at all (even in your pocket).  Electronic devices, and any hand-held object of any kind (lotion, keys, iPhones, etc.), is totally prohibited on water rides.
  • Know Before You Go! Before getting on a ride, make sure to observe the ride in operation, and how people board and exit.  If anything makes you uncomfortable about participating, please do not participate.  If you do choose to participate, realize that you are assuming all risks of the ride or attraction in which you are participating.
  • Please Pay Attention To Safety Signage. READ AND ABIDE BY ALL SAFETY SIGNAGE, ATTENDANT INSTRUCTIONS, AND RECORDED WARNINGS AND INSTRUCTIONS.  If you have questions, PLEASE ASK the attendant.  If you see something unsafe, PLEASE TELL an attendant.

WARNING!  Assess Your Capabilities BEFORE You “Just Do It”

Rides and other attractions at the Park can provide our guests with wonderful memories and exhilarating fun!  But amusement and water rides also can be adrenaline-pumping activities which put substantial strain and forces on your body and senses, through rapid acceleration, speed, sudden movements, and the unpredictable motion of a ride, which may thrust your body about in different directions, causing muscular strain and stress on your body such as on your neck and back, and accelerated heart rate and blood pressure.

DO NOT PARTICIPATE IN ANY RIDE, ACTIVITY OR ATTRACTION, IF YOU ARE UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF ANY ALCOHOL, DRUGS (WHETHER LEGAL MEDICATION OR ILLEGAL SUBSTANCES) OR OTHER SUBSTANCES WHICH MAY AFFECT YOUR HEALTH, SENSES, AND BODY REFLEXES AND COORDINATION.

DO NOT PARTICIPATE IN ANY RIDE, ACTIVITY OR ATTRACTION, IF YOU HAVE ANY HEALTH CONDITIONS OR PRE-EXISTING CONDITIONS OR INJURIES, OR IF YOU ARE TOO AFRAID TO PARTICIPATE, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION HEART, NERVE, MUSCLE, BACK, NECK, BONE, JOINT, BRAIN, EYE, EAR, OR OTHER AILMENT OR INJURY, OR IF YOU ARE PREGNANT OR HAVE HAD SURGERY IN THE PAST FEW MONTHS OR IF YOU ARE STILL RECOVERING FROM ANY ILLNESS OR MEDICAL CONDITION, TREATMENT OR PROCEDURE.  ONLY YOU CAN DETERMINE IF YOU FEEL GOOD ENOUGH TO SAFELY PARTICIPATE IN A RIDE OR ATTRACTION.  THE PARK DOES NOT, AND CANNOT, GUARANTEE YOUR HEALTH, AND YOU FULLY ASSUME ALL RISKS OF ANY PARK RIDE OR ACTIVITY IN WHICH YOU CHOOSE TO PARTICIPATE.

Rider Responsibility

Each guest at our Park has legal and moral obligations to act responsibly on all rides and attractions.

All amusement rides are physical activities which pose inherent risks.  You must at all times act in a responsible manner to safeguard your own health and safety, and refrain from anything which poses a risk to others.  Carefully read and obey all warning signs and instructions, attendant instructions, and recorded safety messages.  Watch how rides are loaded and unloaded.  To the extent possible, observe rides in action before going on.  Watch where you are walking.  Ask questions of lifeguards if you are unsure or have questions.

Be safe and have fun!

We care deeply about all our guests, and want everyone to have happy memories that last a lifetime.  That is why safety must always come first above and beyond anyone’s desire to participate in a ride, attraction, activity, or area of the waterpark.  In addition, if the waterpark determines in its sole discretion that you are not able to safely participate in a ride or attraction, we may prevent you from doing so (without any refund or other compensation to you).

Remember – safety is a shared responsibility!  The waterpark can only do so much to keep you safe—it is up to you, as well.  We can’t protect people from the consequences of their own reckless or irresponsible behavior.  You must act responsibly for your own health and safety, and for that of others.
Finally, if at any time you feel you need help due to an injury or medical concern, please immediately notify a lifeguard or park staff and ask for help.
Thank you very much for your understanding and cooperation!

No Animals

Animals of any kind are not allowed in the park, except for legally-defined service dogs or as may otherwise be required by law to assist those with disabilities (“disabilities” being defined by the Americans with Disabilities Act or other applicable laws).  If you claim to have a legally-qualifying “service dog” you will be required to verify its legitimacy.   A “service animal” is defined by law, and not by a person’s personal desires.  For example, a “companion” animal, or an animal that brings “emotional comfort,” or a dog which serves as “personal security,” does not qualify as a legal “service animal.”

Even if a “service animal” is verified, and allowed to enter the park, please be aware that you are still responsible for controlling it at all times.  A service animal is also prohibited from all rides, because rides are built for people, and because animals cannot be safely contained or restrained on amusement rides, they would thereby pose a serious safety hazard.  Animals are also prohibited from going into or on any water ride or attractions, because of hygiene concerns, in addition to safety concerns.
Please understand that we may require removal of your service animal from park property if it poses a threat to persons or property, including without limitation, if it is unruly, threatening, aggressive (barking, snarling, biting at patrons, etc.) and/or if you are unable to control your animal at all times.
You must make sure that your service animal has gone to the bathroom before coming to the waterpark.  Once at the waterpark, if your animal needs to “go,” please do your best to steer the animal to an area off to the side on a grassy area, away from other patrons, if possible.  We encourage you to ask a staff member to where your animal might be directed.
It is prohibited to leave animals in a car while patrons enjoy the waterpark; in such event, animal control (or other government authority) may be called, and your car forcibly entered into, in order to attend to the health or safety needs of an animal.   You will have to pay all such costs involved in the rescue of any pet left in a car, and could face animal cruelty charges from local authorities.

Rules of Guest Behavior

All guests must behave in a family-friendly and courteous manner, and in a manner which is safe for themselves and for others.  Violations may result in ejection from certain rides, attractions, areas of the waterpark, or from the waterpark itself, without refund or other compensation.  The following is strictly prohibited, subjecting the violator to ejection without refund:

  • Line-Cutting/Line-Saving – Guests may not:  Save places in line for themselves or others; let friends, family, or others later join them in line or take their place in line; push past or bypass others; or leave and return to “their space”.  If you or anyone in your group leaves a line–for whatever reason (including the need to use a restroom)–then upon that person’s return, that person must go to the back of the line—no exceptions.  Please understand that in order to prevent chaos and annoyed customers, we must have and enforce these strict rules.
  • Smoking – Smoking of any substance, through any means, is not permitted, including without limitation, cigarettes, pipes, cigars, hookahs, marijuana, bongs or electronic cigarettes inside the waterpark except in designated “Smoking Areas”.
    • Medical Marijuana – Marijuana is strictly prohibited on premises, whether in the waterpark or in the parking lots, or anywhere else on, in, or around, waterpark grounds.  If you have a medical marijuana card, this does NOT entitle you to have marijuana on waterpark grounds.  Anyone in possession of marijuana, or using marijuana, will be ejected from the waterpark.
    • Electronic Cigarettes – No electronic cigarettes, period.  There is no way whatsoever for the waterpark to determine actually what is in such devices, nor whether such a device is actually for “smoking” and not a weapon or some other sort of device.  Minimally, electronic cigarettes are annoying and/or a concern to the majority of our customers who do not wish to be subjected to whatever substance people may be “smoking.”
  • Offensive Conduct.-  We run a family-friendly waterpark, where people should be courteous of one another.  Prohibited conduct includes profanity, cursing, making offensive comments or gestures, pushing, spitting, flashing of body parts, and other offensive conduct.
  • Fighting – The waterpark does not tolerate fighting, nor invitations or challenges to fight, nor the threat thereof (whether to an intended victim or comments in general expressing a desire or intent to hurt another person).  You may also be ejected for any pushing, roughness, “chest bumping,” making aggressive moves (e.g., clenching fists, getting face-to-face with another, getting into a fighting stance, etc.), or other physically aggressive conduct.
  • Unruly Behavior –  “Horseplay” in any amusement or waterpark setting can be dangerous to you and to those around you.   Accordingly, all manner of “horseplay” is prohibited, including without limitation, jumping over any objects (benches, fences), diving or jumping into water structures, climbing on trees or structures (buildings, lamp posts, etc.), standing on tables or chairs, climbing up or jumping over barricades and fences, wrestling, playing tag or chasing each other, throwing items (shoes, food, rocks, sticks, rafts or inner tubes, etc.), jumping down stairs, twirling around banisters, gymnastics-like activities (kart wheels, flips, splits, handstands, etc).  Balls of any type are NOT allowed in the waterpark. Please walk through the park (no running), stay on the walkways, and always watch where you are going.  Refrain from entering any landscaped areas—landscaped and planted areas such as flower beds are not meant for guests to tread upon!  Exercise caution when going up or down stairs, or when traversing any areas with tree roots.
  • Property Damage and Theft –  Any damage to or destruction of waterpark property (or the property of another), or theft of any property, will not be tolerated.  Offenders will be ejected from the waterpark, and may be held for authorities.
  • Diving or Entry into any Decorative Water Feature – Decorative water features may include ponds, streams and fountains, which may be natural or man-made.  Entry of any kind into such a decorative water feature is prohibited.  Diving, “flops,” flips, or “cannon balls” are prohibited at all times.
  • Entry into Employee-Only and other Non-Guest Areas – Many non-guest areas can pose deadly hazards—do NOT enter!  Guests are strictly prohibited from entering any area with obvious signage such as, “EMPLOYEE ONLY,” “NO ACCESS,” “KEEP OUT,” or “DO NOT ENTER.”   However, it is also common sense that guests should refrain from entering any maintenance areas, work shops, offices, tool sheds, electrical rooms, ride motor rooms, etc., whether or not such areas are marked with signage.  Offenders are subject to immediate ejection from the Park, and where appropriate, such persons may be held for law enforcement.  Parents who allow their minors to engage in such activity will be ejected.
  • Please DO NOT LEAVE SHOES, TOWELS, BAGS OR OTHER ITEMS ON PATHWAYS AND STAIRS, WHERE SUCH ITEMS MAY POSE A TRIP HAZARD.  Please be considerate of others.

Dress Code – No Inappropriate Clothing or Nudity

In keeping with a family-friendly environment, the waterpark prohibits clothing that would tend to be offensive and/or too revealing of one’s body. This includes the following rules, which may also be supplemented on a case-by-case basis as determined by the waterpark, in its good faith discretion and without further notice:

  • Water Park Attire – Appropriate swimwear is required for water rides or water-play structures. Swimwear which is too provocative or revealing, including without limitation, transparent or mesh-style material is prohibited.
  • For safety reasons and to prevent property damage of rides and attractions, the waterpark prohibits cut-off jeans, denim shorts, clothing/swimwear with metal rivets or spikes, metal fasteners or buckles, or belts. Shoes of any kind are not allowed on any water slide or tube rides.
  • The waterpark prohibits any jewelry that may pose a hazard to the rider, other guests, the rides itself, or other property. Prohibited items may include: bulky, protruding or dangling jewelry (e.g., large hoop earrings which could snag on something, long necklaces which can pose a strangulation hazard, bulky rings, and any piercings that could snag or catch on equipment).
  • Masks, horror, or Halloween-style attire is not permitted. We do not permit clothing that depicts violence.
  • Appropriate “public” clothing. No pajamas, bath robes, lingerie, indoor slippers, costumes of any kind, etc.
  • No vulgar or offensive tattoos, statements or artwork on clothing. This includes curse words, depictions of sexual acts or nudity, depictions or messages of violence, and racially or religiously divisive/hateful material.
  • No gangland clothing, hand-signs, “colors,” or tattoos.

Weapons & Other Prohibited Items

The following are strictly prohibited at the park, including without limitation in parked cars, concealed on one’s person, or carried in bags:

  • Weapons of any kind (including without limitation, firearms, knives, letter openers, scissors, box cutters, bats, collapsible canes, arrow tips, blackjacks, clubs, mace, pepper spray, tasers, brass-knuckles, chains, canes carried as a weapon or which conceal a weapon, etc.), fireworks, explosives, or ammunition.
  • Tools (screwdrivers, pliers, hammers, chisels, pruning shears, multi-tool knives, etc.).
  • Spray paint, magic markers, glass objects or bottles, spiked clothing, jewelry (which is large, sharply edged, or spiked, such that it poses a safety concern).
  • Beach umbrellas, tents or Easy Ups.
  • Radios/boom boxes, musical instruments.
  • Skateboards, unicycles, stilts, pogo sticks, spring-loaded footwear, Segways and other mobility devices, bicycles, roller skates and other toys or methods of convenience.  (If you need a wheelchair or scooter, we are of course happy to accommodate you; please see our Guests with Disabilities section herein).  Waterpark’s are crowded places, and the only way to keep our common areas safe is to ensure that people do not have devices which create a heightened risk.

Drones – Prohibited & Illegal

Use of drones (in, over, or around the Park), whether for photographic purposes or otherwise, is strictly prohibited (unless the user has been granted written, contractual permission for that specific instance from management of the waterpark). Violations may subject the user to immediate ejection, confiscation of the drone, and referral of the matter to authorities. Drones are a serious safety hazard to ride operations, waterpark operations (including electrical facilities), and to the waterpark’s guests and personnel. Use of drones in, over or around the waterpark, also constitutes an illegal trespass, an invasion of the waterpark’s privacy, and a tortuous interference to our operations.

Breast Feeding

The Ravine Waterpark welcomes all breastfeeding mothers and their children and (in accordance with applicable law) does not discriminate against breastfeeding mothers.  Waterpark staff may approach a breastfeeding mother to offer a more shaded or private area to breastfeed, but we only do so in a sincere attempt to provide a breastfeeding mother with more comfort or privacy if she so desires it; we will never demand that a breastfeeding mother must relocate, nor do we discourage a mother from breastfeeding wherever she has a right to be.

Non-Amusement Park Activities – Politics, Protests, etc.

The waterpark does not allow any non-amusement park activities by guests, including without limitation, political activities, fundraising, organized or group religious practices or rituals, demonstrations, exercise classes, athletic team practices, unauthorized commercial activities, or protests, anywhere on-site, nor anywhere outside the waterpark’s perimeter where such activities may interfere with waterpark operations, guest attendance or enjoyment, or traffic flow into/out of/around the waterpark, or which would compromise safety and security. At a minimum, any protests/demonstrations must be outside of the waterpark’s property and at least 500 feet away from all waterpark entrances/exits. Anyone violating this rule on or within waterpark property will be subject to immediate removal from waterpark premises.
