COVID-19 UPDATES AND INFO
SEASON 2020 CALENDAR
For our current full operating schedule, which is subject to change depending on local and state orders, please visit our operating calendar.
Wet ‘N’ Wild Waterworld is following the latest guidelines and recommendations of public health authorities, including the World Health Organization (WHO), Federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), El Paso County, the World Waterpark Association (WWA) and others. Please view the latest county
government safety updates here.
According to the Department of Homeland Security, “when the airborne virus at temperatures between 70 and 75 degrees is exposed to sunlight, its half-life decreases from around 60 minutes before exposure to 1.5 minutes after.”
Pursuant to El Paso County Order No. 9, Amendment 1 (https://www.epcounty.com/documents/STAMPED%20FINAL%201st%20Amendment%20Order%20No.%209.pdf), Wet ‘n’ Wild Water World is continuing to implement its COVID-19 safety plan as explained in the video link above as its Wet N Wild Covid Safe Heath and Safety Policy:
- In order to provide safe social distancing measures Wet n Wild Waterworld is aggressively limiting its guest capacity starting at just 15%, not to exceed 25%
- Admission tickets purchased online for the date of your choosing guarantee your admission
- Picnic table packages, which include free parking, enable a touch-free entry to the park when combined with an online admission ticket or a season pass ID
- Cabanas are also available for reservation. The number available has been limited to ensure plenty of distance between cabanas.
- Picnic table packages and cabanas are limited to maximum 10 people each, which should be members of your household or residence
- All rental items such as cabanas, lockers and tubes are cleaned between uses
- 50 hand-sanitizing stations are located throughout the park, along with over 40 hand-washing stations, some of which are located in private, reservable areas
- Bathrooms are cleaned every 15 minutes and high-touch areas are cleaned frequently throughout the day
- Employees and guests, contractors and vendors are required to wear face coverings when within 6 feet of individuals not in their household, when other physical, mental, and security safety risks allow.
- Face coverings, per CDC guidelines, are not to be worn in the water or on water attractions.
- Wet ‘n’ Wild is limiting entrance to certain water attractions in order for guests to comfortably be able to maintain social distancing
- To facilitate the wearing/not wearing of face coverings where appropriate, Wet ‘n’ Wild is providing free waterpark-friendly face coverings upon entry
Wet’n’Wild Waterworld undertakes rigorous hygiene standards, cleaning procedures and health and safety standards:
- Recently updated signage in accordance with guidelines regarding hand-washing and bather cleanliness
- On-site first-aid facilities with registered EMT’s with appropriate BBP practices in place
- An increased number of hygiene hand washing stations
- Conduct additional cleaning of rides and attractions including frequent disinfection of areas often contacted especially on high touch areas and shaded or indoor surfaces.
In addition to the above authority updates, we have received clarification from the CDC’s Waterborne Disease Prevention Branch, which states:
“There is no evidence that COVID-19 can be spread to humans through the use of pools and hot tubs. Proper operation, maintenance, and disinfection (e.g., with chlorine and bromine) of pools and hot tubs removes or inactivates the virus that causes COVID-19.”
Wet’n’Wild Waterworld complies with these strict guidelines. We will continue to provide updates on this page and our social media.
