Packing for the Park - Print This Checklist!

July 28, 2014

If you’ve been visiting the Dells as long as you can remember, then you can move on to the next story, as you’ll have this list down pat. For the rest, this is the consummate list of must-haves for a day at the waterpark, with some oh-wow-great-ideas thrown in for good measure.

  • Swimsuit, make that two if you plan to stay a few days
  • Biggest beach towel you have
  • Swimsuit cover-up for the stroll back to your room or the car
  • Waterproof sunscreen to protect skin, sunglasses to protect eyes
  • Cell phone to stay in touch and waterproof bag for safe stowing
  • Footwear – flip flops or water shoes are good choices - to protect your feet as you walk from waterslide to waterslide
  • Swim goggles (great for the wave pools)
  • Quarters for storage lockers
  • Waterproof camera
  • Two sets of car keys – keep them in separate places in case you lose one
  • Your favorite friends and family members and an adventurous attitude!

What not to bring: jewelry. (Can’t wear it on extreme waterslides anyway.)

Now for some important safety rules to waterpark by:

  • Follow the directions of the lifeguards.
  • Walk, don’t run.
  • Keep an eye out for little ones, always. (Speaking of little ones, swim diapers required.)
  • Know your limits, especially if you don’t know how to swim. Ask for a life jacket as you enter the park.  Children under a certain age may be required to wear a life jacket.
  • Read and obey all the precaution signs posted at the rides, slides and pools.
  • Stay hydrated.
  • Arrange a meeting time and place (be specific – by the wave pool won’t cut it) to occasionally check in with the rest of your group.
