Accommodations for Guests with Disabilities

Ocean Breeze Waterpark offers discounts on admission for guests with disabilities when presenting 1) Valid, state-issued disability parking placard or card, 2) State-issued proof of disability or 3) Verbal representation that is not contradicted by observable fact.

Ocean Breeze Waterpark is equipped with many features to enhance the experience of guests with disabilities. In
2012, we added a pool lift to our TropiCool Activity pool area to assist guests that are unable to gain entry to and
exit from the pool. In addition, two of our main attractions, Runaway Bay wave pool and the Adventure River have
zero depth entry beaches. This allows for wheel chairs to access the water and facilitate transfer into the pool or to
enjoy the pool from whatever comfortable depth is desired. Free lifejackets are located throughout the park and
free inner tubes are available at the Adventure River. Our staff is trained and ready to assist in making our guests
experience at the park enjoyable.
Accessible Rides and Attractions (include, but not limited to):
• Runaway Bay, our million gallon wave pool, with it’s zero-depth entrance feature is your very own “ocean” with
no sand, no jellyfish – just a wide beach leading to Hugh Mongous waves.
• The Adventure River has a zero-depth entrance to allow riders to pass by shimmering waterfalls, through
rollicking waves and get soaked under playful tipping buckets.
• Hook’s Lagoon Children’s play area has a zero depth entry to the main pool area which is approximately 1 foot
in depth. In this area we have many spray features and Hook’
s Lagoon play structure with a giant tipping
bucket that sends water splashing all around. This area also includes Little Amazon lazy river with a zero
depth entry to offer a pint sized Adventure River experience.
• TropiCool Island Activity pool is a free swim area of the park that ranges between 3 and 5 feet of water and is
accessible with an ADA pool lift.
• Aquatic wheelchairs are available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Visit Guest Relations to inquire about
availability.
 
Discounted admission is available for guests with disabilities. Daily admission is discounted off the regular ticket
price. Season passes are offered to guests with disabilities for the lowest price of the season. Discounts are only
available in person with documentation.
 
Some guests with disabilities require a professional caregiver to access the park as they would be unable to attend
without assistance. Ocean Breeze Waterpark provides one free admission for a professional caregiver per paying
guest with a disability. The caregiver must provide professional documentation in the form of a pay stub, employee
ID or other proof of their caregiver credentials. We offer a caregiver season pass for our season pass holders with
disabilities that also require a professional caregiver to enjoy the park. Documentation of having a professional
caregiver must be presented at the time of issuance. The season pass holder with the disability will be pictured and
named on the card. To use the caregiver season pass it must be presented with proper documentation to the gate
greeter and the season passholder for which it is issued for must accompany the caregiver.
 
Service animals are welcome in most locations throughout the Park and can accompany a guest via the standard
queue up to the loading point. However, due to safety restrictions, service animals are not allowed to accompany a
guest on a ride. Service animals must be on a leash at all times. Any show of hostile behavior towards other guests
or employees is unacceptable. Service animals may not be handled by or left with other guests or employees.
