Aquapark safety rules

Attending an aquapark is one of the most memorable experiences in childhood. But what all children often forget about is following safety rules while having fun at a water slide and other attractions. At this point, adults should remind their kids (and control as well) this important safety information.

1.  Stay aside from a ‘warning’ area.

2.  Make sure to explain to kids the ride rules and tell them how they should behave at an aquapark.

3. Follow attendant instructions all the time.

4. Make sure your kids suit an age limit regulations for every particular attraction.

5. At a water slide, make sure only one rider is sliding at a time.

6. No flipping, wrestling, or piling on others while on a water slide.

7. No food, gum, and drinks, inside the unit.
