Waterpark Survival Tips

Here’s are three Waterpark Survival Tips if you are planning a waterpark trip with the family this year! Keep everyone safe and have a great time!! We will be heading to Schlitterbahn in Kansas City soon with the family, for the first time ever, and having the twins with us makes me a bit nervous considering they are only two. So tips in hand, hopefully I can will feel a bit at ease, and  hopefully you will too!

1. Swim shoes or flip flops: Schlitterbahn parks are among the largest in the nation, and that means that invariably there will be some hot spots without shade or outdoor carpet. Wear some sort of water worthy shoe.

2. Suncreen: Water rides remove the best in sunscreen. Apply, ride, repeat.

3. Pack a lunch: Schlitterbahn allows ice chests, but no glass or alcohol. Make sure to pack some favorites but leave room for park specialties like funnel cake and turkey legs!

4. Have a Plan: Having a game plan, especially when you have little kids in toe, helps avoid any distractions, meltdowns, or issues near the water.
