Coronavirus Update

To Our Valued Guests


April 1, 2020: While we look forward to welcoming each of you to Water Country this season, there is a great deal of uncertainty for us all surrounding the current COVID-19 situation.

Our highest priority remains the safety of all of our Team Members and Guests, and we’re closely following the guidelines set forth by federal, state and local government officials and health experts. Because of the shutdown of preseason preparations, we know we will not be ready to start our season as normally planned on June 13. While it’s too soon to confidently provide an opening date, please know we remain committed to opening Water Country this summer for you to enjoy as soon as safely possible.

To our devoted current Season Passholders: we want to thank you for your support in good times and bad, and reaffirm our commitment to you by automatically extending your 2020 Season Pass through the end of June 2021. This will come at no cost to you and requires no action on your part. At a later point, Passholders will be able to extend their 2021 Season Pass to cover that entire summer at a reduced rate.

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

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