• Tips for waterpark fun
With the Midwest full of waterpark opportunities, both indoor and out, choosing the perfect location to make a splash for your next event shouldn’t be too hard. But, while you are thinking about it, look at ways to increase your participants’ experience overall.
When is the earliest your group can arrive? For a resort, are you able to provide complimentary waterpark passes to VIPs and ‘Early Bird’ registrations? This will give the added bonus of utilizing the waterpark prior to event activities. For outdoor waterparks, plan an early arrival so your group can get settled in and enjoy a little time before the afternoon crowds begin to arrive, this is a great time for group photos as well…less squinting.
Cabanas are a great addition to both indoor and outdoor events. Not only are you likely able to have them sponsored, but they allow a semi-private location for guests to network and a great location for keeping snacks and beverages for your group exclusively.
Regardless of location, water and food are important to have on hand for your group. Consider the temperature, time of day, and amount of physical activity participants are engaging in and create snacking opportunities to allow for sufficient nourishment, especially if alcohol is involved.
When choosing your waterpark venue make sure to let your guests know in advance if certain attire is not permitted. Some venues do not allow swimsuits with metal buttons, rivets, zippers, or snaps. Knowing in advance will help eliminate potential frustration and embarrassment for your participants.
Remember, when utilizing an outdoor venue to ALWAYS HAVE SUNSCREEN! This item is easy to have branded and makes a useful welcome gift to the event, because everyone should be using it as they soak up the sun and the fun.
