Coronavirus Update

To Our Valued Guests


May 11, 2020: This year hasn’t been what any of us expected. Like you, COVID-19 continues to impact every part of our lives and we have been faced with many hard decisions. Most recently the delayed start of our 2020 Season.

We’re extending paid 2020 Season Passes through the entire 2021 Season, including newly purchased Season Passes for a limited time. Additionally, all pre-purchased Day Tickets will be valid any day in the 2020 or 2021 season. It’s the right thing to do in appreciation of your patience and support.

We have been working diligently these past two months to adapt to this pandemic and the new normal it has created. We continue working towards Water Country’s Opening Day, though an exact date remains undetermined. Our top priority, as always, is the health and safety of our Guests and Team Members, meeting their needs and making sure they’re taken care of. We will continue to follow the rulings and recommendations of our local, state and federal leadership throughout this process, working alongside health and safety officials and our colleagues in the amusement and attractions industries. Please visit our web site for more information on our approach. We will continue to provide updates as details are finalized.

While the experience will be different from any other season in our history, we remain committed to delivering the safe, family fun that’s been our calling card since 1984. From all of us at Water Country, thank you for your continued support. We can’t wait until the day you’re back with us and the sounds of summer fill the air again.

We invite you to check our website regularly and follow our social media channels for updates. Please see our FAQ section below for additional information, or email WCGuestService@PalaceEntertainment.com to connect with Guest Services. Group outing planners can email WaterCountryGroup@PalaceEntertainment.com.

We appreciate your understanding and value your support during these challenging times. Thank you, and stay safe.
