Slide heights are set by the manufacturer of the slides for safety reasons and are adopted by Oklahoma Dept. of Labor as their rules. As a result, 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.

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.
WATER DEPTH – 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.
TEMPERATURES – The water temperature is 83°F or above and the air temperature 86°F or above year round. We have large fans that are about 24-feet in diameter and the roof panels open, so if it gets too warm we have ways to make it comfortable.
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.
GROUP RATES – Are available for groups of 10 or more. Contact our marketing department by email or phone.

Or at our Campground. 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 enter select areas of the water park 1 hour before opening and swim 1 hour after closing. Plus you receive 10% bonus splash cash. The hotel packages are like getting one day swimming FREE. 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.
ADDING AN ADDITIONAL GUEST – to the 4 person water pack package? You can do that at the hotel front desk when you arrive.
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.
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.
