Flip-Flops Day, Hmmm, Was That Invented in the Waterpark Capital?

List of Waterpark Essentials

You can take this list of waterpark essentials to the bank, as we’ve been on the front line of researching this for a few decades now.

Will Make or Break the Trip

  • A swimsuit or two – think function over fashion
  • Waterproof sunscreen to protect skin
  • Sunglasses to protect eyes – bonus if they’re polarized to cut down on glare from the water
  • Cell phone to stay in touch and waterproof bag for safe stowing
  • Flip flops or water shoes to protect your feet as you walk from one waterslide to the next to the next

You’ll Be Glad You Packed

  • Biggest, thirstiest beach towel you have
  • Swimsuit cover-up for the stroll back to your room or the car
  • Swim goggles - great for the wave pools
  • Quarters for storage lockers
  • Waterproof camera
  • Sun hat

Don’t Ignore This One

  • Two sets of car keys – keep them in separate places in case you lose one

Leave at Home

  • Jewelry – you don’t want to lose it and you can’t wear it on extreme waterslides anyway
