We do not carry medical insurance. All lifeguards are certified through Ellis and Associates, a national waterpark safety program. Certified Lifeguards are stationed at all attractions and they are in charge of the pools and slides at all times. Please obey all posted signs and regulations. Attraction ratings and rules are posted at each attraction to inform guests about water depths, speed, heights, enclosures, physical limitations and the skills required. Every effort has been made to make your visit safe and enjoyable. Wild Water West Waterpark rides are participatory. Rider safety and enjoyment are dependent upon the observation of posted rules and personal judgement of the guests. Guests must assume responsibility for their own actions within the park. Some rides may prohibit guests with certain conditions from riding. Guests must read and follow the instructions posted at each attraction. Anyone under 48" are not permitted to ride on the free falls slides or the tube slide. If you have any questions, please ask the lifeguards.
