HEIGHT AND LIMITS – All rides in the park are based on height. Slides have height limits – the big 4 story slides are 42 inches minimum, the big slide on the Mezzanine is 40 inches and the other slides on the mezzanine are 36 inches. Slide heights are set by the manufacturer of the slides based on various factors. We are unable to grant exceptions.

AGE LIMITS We have no age limits from little tykes in the 6 inches of water in the infant pool to gray hair (or no hair) older tykes – everyone has fun at the Water-Zoo.

FOOD SERVICE
GLUTEN FREE – We have Gluten Free items on our menu. Ask the concession cashier for more information.

CONCESSION – Our Concession area has pizza, chicken, hamburgers, hot dogs, grilled cheese, nachos, pretzels, salads, Dip-n-Dots, fruit, candy, drinks and more. We think our signature Chicken Sandwich, Build Your Own Burger and 1/4 lb All-Beef Hot Dogs are the best in Clinton. We have quality food at reasonable prices. We do not allow any outside food or drink and we do not sell or permit alcoholic beverages on the premisses.

Outside food may NOT be brought into the Water-Zoo. But our food is first quality – like 1/4 pound all beef hot dogs – and our prices are competitive with other places with quality food. GOOD SIZE PORTIONS – QUALITY FOOD – SAFE FOOD.

CREDIT CARDS
We accept credit and debit cards – Visa, MasterCard and Discover.

SPLASH CASH – Once inside the park we are a cashless facility. You can add SPLASH CASH to your wrist band at the main entrance or use your credit card.

LODGING/ HOTELS/CAMPGROUNDS – We recommend the HOLIDAY INN EXPRESS next door to the Water-Zoo, just 40 feet away door to door or the HAMPTON INN just 1/2 mile away, directly across the Interstate from the Water-Zoo. Both hotels offer Water-Zoo packages as well as free breakfasts. ONLY guests at these 2 hotels or the Water-Zoo Campgrounds are able to get into the water park 1 hour early and swim 1 hour later. Plus you can receive bonus splash cash. The hotel packages are like getting one day swimming FREE. Check out the WHERE TO STAY tab. There also are Priority Entry Lanes for hotel guests at the Hampton Inn, Holiday Inn Express, and Water-Zoo Campground. Priority entry lanes open at 9 a.m., 1 hour before normal opening. Don’t be disappointed – MAKE YOUR HOTEL AND CAMPGROUND RESERVATIONS IN ADVANCE.

WATER-ZOO CAMPGROUND – Is located directly behind the Water-Zoo and you can walk to the water park. Passes to the Water-Zoo Indoor Water Park are also available thru the Water-Zoo Campground just like the Hampton or Holiday Inn Express.
Water-Zoo Campground has all SUPER SITES. 14 ft by 80 ft (or longer) concrete pads, 98% pull thru sites, all 20/30/50 amp service, and FREE Wi-Fi. We can accommodate any type of camping unit from a tent to a 45 foot motor home pulling a 35 foot trailer.
Two sewer drops at every site. We are pet friendly and we are horse friendly with 2 horse corrals available. Check out the OUR CAMPGROUND tab.

THUNDER OR LIGHTNING We do not close the pools for thunder or lightning except when we have a big cell right at our location or very close. This is a new policy effective 5/31/2015.

OBSERVERS – We do not have an observer rate. Guests are welcome to stay in the food court area and watch TV or watch the swimmers through our large glass wall for FREE, but some parts of the aquatics area are not visible from the food court wall. Better to buy a ticket.

SLIDES AND TUBES – 2 of the big 4 story slides are tube slides. They are 36 inches wide and we provide a 1 or 2 man tube at no-charge. The ride is not designed to handle larger tubes.
The purple 4 story slide is a BODY slide. No tube is allowed or needed.
All of the slides on the Mezzanine are BODY SLIDES.

LAZY RIVER – You can walk in the Lazy River (either direction), you can swim in the Lazy River, or you can ride a 1 or 2 man tube in the Lazy River. There is no charge for our tubes.

WAVE POOL  – Same as Lazy River.

ADDING AN ADDITIONAL GUEST – To the 4 person water pack package? You can do that at the hotel front desk when you arrive.

GIFT CERTIFICATES – We have them available online or at the park in almost any denomination. If purchasing them online we’ll send you a confirmation and send the recipient their gift certificate from you electronically.

ADA AND SPECIAL NEEDS CHILDREN The Water Park is ADA compliant and also special needs friendly. The 4 story slides and the Mezzanine do require walking to them. If guests are unable to walk to those two areas then those guests may also not be able to handle those rides. For example, the body slide requires you to be able to move your hands and arms in and assume a pulled in elbows position. All the rest of the park including showers and restrooms are ADA and special needs friendly and compliant. The activity pool does have an ADA lift as well.

AND THE FINAL FAQ – Everybody and I do mean everybody has fun at the Water-Zoo from 3 months old to 99. Its a fun place! The deepest water is 4 1/2 feet and in some areas the water is only 6 inches deep. There are attendants on shallow rides and lifeguards on water 4 1/2 feet deep. We have free life jackets if you don’t swim well. The water temperature is at least 80 degrees year round – the air temp is 82 in winter and may be hotter in summer. We have large fans that are about 24-feet in diameter and half the roof panels open so if it gets too warm we have ways to make it more comfortable.
