WaterPark Safety & Accessibility

WaterPark Safety & Accessibility

Massanutten WaterPark Safety & Accessibility Guide

At Massanutten WaterPark we strive to create a safe and remarkable experience for all of our guests. Many water park slides and attractions incorporate height and weight safety systems designed by the manufacturer to accommodate people of average physical stature and body proportion. These safety systems may place restrictions on the ability of an individual to safely experience the ride. Extremely large or small individuals, guests who have heart, back or neck trouble, pregnant women, people who have had recent surgery, people with casts, braces, restrictive devices or certain disabilities may not be safely accommodated per manufacturer requirements. For example, height requirements are based on the size needed to properly fit in a tube and the level of maturity usually associated with a certain height. Massanutten WaterPark’s policies have been developed in consultation with industry professionals, based on the recommendations of the manufacturer, our past experience and our evaluation of each attraction using our knowledge of the attraction in both normal and emergency operating conditions. Our prime consideration is the ability of each person to endure the dynamics of an attraction without risk of injury to that person or other riders. Any guest who feels they may be affected by this policy is encouraged to visit our Guest Services counter at MerchanDice Surf Shop or contact us at 540.437.3387 or waterpark@massresort.com.

Guests with Disabilities: Pre-arrival and Check-in
We recognize that guests of Massanutten WaterPark may have disabilities which impact the way they are able to experience our attractions. We will accommodate those disabilities where reasonably feasible. We encourage guests with disabilities to contact Massanutten WaterPark prior to your visit, so that we can answer any questions and ensure that you are able to take full advantage of your visit.

Upon arrival, guests with disabilities along with the rest of their party are invited to check-in at the Guest Services counter at MerchanDice Surf Shop on the main level of the WaterPark. Staff will be able to answer any additional questions you may have and assist you during your visit.

Accessibility
Handicapped accessible parking is available in the designated lot. A valid government issued hangtag or license plate must be displayed. Just inside the park’s entrance is an elevator providing access to all levels. Accessible restroom facilities are available on all levels. Additionally, accessible locker room and changing facilities are located on the aquatic level, including an accessible family changing area.

Accommodations to enter, exit or access the slides are limited by the unique nature and construction of waterpark slides and the exits of the slides which are typically into catch pools or run-out.

Special Services
Our goal is to make Massanutten WaterPark as enjoyable and barrier-free as reasonably practical. Listed below are some of the services we offer. Please feel free to suggest areas in which we might better accommodate your needs in the future.

Wheelchairs
Massanutten WaterPark has waterproof wheelchairs available for use at no charge during your visit, on a first-come, first-served basis.

Dietary Restrictions
Although food and beverages are not allowed to be brought into the park, individuals who have special dietary needs can contact us at 540.437.3372 to discuss how we can accommodate your needs.

Service Animals
Service animals are welcome at Massanutten WaterPark; however service animals will not be permitted to enter the water. Service animals must be physically controlled on a leash or harness at all times. Due to the nature of water slides, service animals must remain with a non-riding member of the guest’s party. Massanutten WaterPark team members are not permitted to take control of service animals. Guests whose service animals demonstrate aggressive actions toward our guests or employees will be directed to remove the animal from the park.

Flotation Devices
Lifejackets are provided at no additional charge on a first-come, first-served basis and must remain in the WaterPark. Outside floatation devices are allowed, however only U.S. Coast Guard-approved floatation devices are permitted.

Autism Accommodations

Queue Fast-Track
Queuing can be a difficult experience for some of our guests with autism, so where possible, we will endeavor to ‘fast-track’ you though lines. Guests with queuing difficulty and the members of their party should check in at MerchanDice Surf Shop to obtain special wrist bands.

Autism Friendly Quiet Room
A quiet room may be available at designated times to members of the party during your visit. Please contact Guest Services about this option.

Noise Cancelling Headphones
Noise cancelling headphones can be a handy tool for dealing with the difficulties caused by loud spaces. While we encourage guests to provide their own noise cancelling headphones, they are also available on a first-come, first-served basis for use free of charge while using the park.

Prosthetic Devices
This policy is aimed at fostering the best guest experience possible, while maintaining the safety of all of our guests, and observing operational restrictions and guidelines.

Guests with a history of recent surgery, heart trouble/high blood pressure, neck trouble, back trouble, or any other condition that may be aggravated by riding, or who are pregnant, should carefully heed all warning signs at each attraction entrance. If you are in doubt about your ability to safely experience an attraction, please consult your physician.

Size Restrictions
Due to ride manufacturer and/or tube manufacturer requirements, height and weight restrictions are in place for specific rides and must be adhered to. These restrictions can be found on ride specific information and signage.

Loose Articles
When planning your day at Massanutten WaterPark, it’s best to travel light. Bring only items that can be safely secured in lockers, or left with a non-rider. Unfortunately our slides cannot accommodate loose articles including cell phones, pagers, hats, cameras, stuffed animals, purses, backpacks, basketballs, umbrellas, beverage containers, personal entertainment devices, etc. Lifeguard and slide attendants cannot be responsible for these items. Please do not leave valuable items on the aquatic floor or at the WaterPark. Daily locker rentals are available on the aquatic floor by the locker room area. Glasses must be secured by an athletic strap or they cannot be worn on the ride.

Camera Policy
For safety reasons, we cannot permit on-ride photography of any kind on any ride, with the exception of a “Go-Pro” or similar digital filming device that is securely strapped to the forehead of a rider. Use of the “go-pro” or similar device is subject to approval from management and may be rescinded at any time in the interest of safety. Under no circumstance shall “Selfie-Sticks” or cameras/phones on a pole be permitted on a ride. Riders will not be permitted to hold a camera, camera phone, or other recording device while riding a slide or attraction. Any type of photography or use of video recording devices is strictly prohibited in all restrooms and changing areas.

In General
All riders should be in good health and free from any conditions known or unknown that might be aggravated by riding. To ride, guests must have the ability to brace themselves upright in the provided tube and support their head and neck during the slide/water movements.
