Santa’s Water Park
Use of the water park is optional and it’s included the price of admission, subject to availability, based on guest traffic flow and the water park area’s capacity for maintaining appropriate social distancing at various points during the day. During the pandemic, we may sometimes limit the number of guests in the water park at one time, to help with distancing when conditions require.
On warmer days we suggest considering a late-morning visit to the water park, as this area tends to be very popular from mid-to-late-afternoons, and we may need to limit access at times. We also suggest limiting your time in the water park to about 90 minutes, to allow more families to enjoy that area of the park, and to provide plenty of time for your family to enjoy the other features in the rest of the park.
Santa’s Water Park typically is open every day Santa’s Village is open from late May through early October. We’ll usually keep it closed if the air temperature falls short of 65 degrees, because our water is not heated. It opens an hour after the rest of the park (or later on cold mornings), and closes fifteen to twenty minutes before the rest of the park.
The four features — Ho Ho H2O, JOY Ride Slides, Poogee’s Splash Pad, and Polar Paradise — each typically open daily. Each separate feature is subject to possible schedule changes such as delayed openings, temporary closures, or early closures. Schedule adjustments may happen for factors such as unfavorable weather conditions, chemical imbalances caused by users or by nature, mechanical or electrical maintenance, and staffing limitations.
Guests need to bring their own towels and modest bathing suits; those items also may be purchased at the Elfs Lodge Trading Post gift shop.
