Things to carry to the water park:

Water parks are a great destination for families and is a fun way to spend a hot summer day. A day at the waterpark can relax your mind and make you feel like a child again. In order to make your trip to the water park stress free and enjoyable, it is important that you are prepared and create a check list of things you need to take to the park. Mostly, you don’t need to bring a lot of things to the waterpark as these things are usually provided to you but packing carefully saves you from buying basic things from the waterpark, which works out to be more expensive.

Before you start packing, it is important to familiarize yourself with the dress code and packing rules & regulations of the waterpark, therefore, making you spend less time on packing things that are not allowed inside the park.


Waterparks usually have a dress code for guests. You should always check the water park’s dress code as most of the waterparks do not allow guests without swimwear. You should always pack well fitting and comfortable swimwear.  Avoid bring in swimwear with zippers, buttons and metal ornaments as those might get caught on the rides and cause your swimsuit to tear. Also, they can cause damage to the water park equipment. Choose to wear a bathing suit under your casual clothes so that it is easier to get ready in the locker room. Make sure you take coverups with you as they can reduce your exposure to the sun. We recommend that you bring a hat to shield yourself from the sun.

Also, pack a change of clothes and an extra pair of undergarments. Carry a sweatshirt so that you don’t feel cold as the day wanes. Bring appropriate gear, for instance, a set of sport clothes and shoes, in addition to your water apparel for other attractions in the water park, which are not water related. Pack water socks, flip flops or water shoes or sandals as you will be walking around on the concrete in the heat.

Swimming Accessories:

Towels: Bring at least one large towel per person. Most waterparks offer towels to use for free or for a rental fee, but they might not be long enough or absorbent enough to dry you adequately. So, it is always a good idea to pack your own towel before going to the water park.

Floatation devices: Check with the water park if they allow you to carry your water wings, inflatable pool toys or other floatation devices. Also, ask if they offer life jackets you can use for free and if they don’t, carry your own life vests.

Goggles: It is a good idea to bring polarized and photo chromatic sunglasses with a head strap to the waterpark as they reduce the glare from the water.

Personal Items:

Sunblock: Wear a waterproof sunblock with a broad-spectrum sunscreen that will protect you from Ultraviolet A and Ultraviolet B radiations from the sun. Look for a sunblock with an SPF of 30 to 45 and apply it half and hour before you go outside and carry it with yourself so that you can reapply it every two hours or after riding any water slides.

Personal hygiene items: Most water parks usually have locker rooms with showers. Carry a travel sized body wash, conditioner and shampoo as well as moisturizing lotion to put on. Other items you may need are a hairbrush, hair ties and deodorant.

Beach bag or a backpack: Carry a beach bag or backpack to carry your water shoes, sunscreen, snacks, and towels. Make sure not to over pack your bag with heavy items that may hurt your shoulders to carry around for a long period of time.

Diaper bag: Make sure to bring swimming diapers and swim pants if you are going to the water park with a toddler who wears diapers. Also pack baby wipes, diaper rash cream, changing pads, baby food, blanket and bath toys in your diaper bag.

Food and drinks: Check with the water park ahead of time and see if you are allowed to bring your own food and drinks. Carry adult and kid friendly snacks and bring napkins, paper plates along. Do carry an empty water bottle to fill at the park because it is really important to stay hydrated as it prevents motion sickness on rides.

Stroller or a wagon: Take a stroller or a wagon with you if you are travelling to the park with infants or children. Check with the water park if they have stroller rentals available, where you can safely stow your strollers or wagons, while you are on a ride. A wagon can be a handy way to carry your bags and personal items.

Remedies for motion sickness: Water park rides can cause uncomfortable motion sickness and nausea. The best way to combat motion sickness is to prevent it from happening. For that, it is important to stay hydrated. Consider taking an over-the-counter antihistamine, an hour before you arrive at the water park. If you are prone to motion sickness, you should talk to your health care provider for a possible defence against motion sickness.

Leave your jewelry and watches at home: It is a good idea to leave your valuables, jewelry at home as you may risk losing or damaging your valuables on the rides or in the water. Carry other necessary valuables like your cell phone, car keys, credit card and some money in a sealable, waterproof bag, that can be stored in the locker. Keep the key to your locker safe with you throughout your stay at the park.

Waterproof camera: Carrying a disposable, waterproof camera would be a good idea than carrying a smartphone or a digital camera as it would be less likely to get damaged.

First aid kit: Carry along a basic first aid kit with a few bandages and antiseptic towelettes to the waterpark. It is a good idea to carry your own first aid kit in case you stumble and get hurt. These amenities would be available at the park but may cost you more.

And that’s it! Happy Summers…….
