Letter from our General Manager

Posted on 06/19/2020

We realize that many of you are anxiously awaiting an opening date for Ocean Breeze and may be frustrated that we don't have one yet. Please know that we share your frustration and are every bit as anxious as you are to officially kick off summer and say to our guests and our own families – let’s go to Ocean Breeze!

To be perfectly candid – Ocean Breeze Waterpark is not closed because of a choice we made. We are bound by the decisions of the Governor’s office. Unfortunately, the current Phase 2 guidelines do not permit amusement parks to be open. But we are working hard behind the scenes to get Ocean Breeze open as quickly as possible! In fact, our management team has developed a comprehensive plan to safely open Ocean Breeze Waterpark. We have shared our plan with officials at the Governor’s Office, the Governor’s Task Force and the Virginia Department of Health. We are confident that this plan will allow guests of Ocean Breeze Waterpark to have a safe, fun experience at our facility.  But again, we are awaiting the approval of the Governor. As soon, as we have guidance from the Governor’s office that we can reopen, we will set an open date.

 But enough about what we cannot do.

 Let’s talk about what we CAN do: 

 First and foremost, we are working hard to get the water park prepared to open. The pools, slides and snack stands are getting prepped and ready. Staff is being hired and trained.

 We can also share our enhanced safety and cleanliness guidelines with you. When we get approval to open, visiting the waterpark may look a little different as we all work together to take care of each other. 

 We have officially added dates to this season and the waterpark calendar will now include weekends through SEPTEMBER 27, 2020. All 2020 season passes and day tickets will be valid through this date.

Finally, we would like to announce special benefits for our valued season passholders. Any season pass that is purchased by Opening Day 2020, will now be valid through June 30, 2021. These passholders will also receive a $10 Cashless Kickback for use at select food and retail outlets in the park.

 Additionally, all passholders will now receive the following upgraded benefits:

  • Early open for passholders every Tuesday and Thursday
  • $1 hot dogs every Tuesday
  • Virtual Processing of your permanent Season Pass ID. Click here to have your card ready and waiting for you on Opening Day.

 We can’t thank all of you enough for your patience and understanding during this unprecedented time. The entire Ocean Breeze team can’t wait to see your smiling faces again soon!
