Frequently-Asked Questions

The minimum age and height for the FunSplash Sports Park is 6 years old and 42 inches (107cm) tall.

No. We do not require adults to accompany children onto the FunSplash. We have life guards stationed throughout the park so as long as you and your child are comfortable, you are welcome to relax and watch from the waterfront. We will also take down your cellphone number when younger children go out onto the FunSplash unaccompanied so we can call you if we can’t locate you in person.

No, sorry you do need to wear a life jacket provided by us. This allows us to recognize you from a distance as a paid player. Our life jackets all have a number marked on them which enables us to log how many players are on the park. Our life jackets are top qualify and Transport Canada approved.

We do not offer any family packs however our 3-day Pack and 5-day Pack are very popular with families! The 3-day Pack includes 3 Full Day Splash Passes and the 5 day-Pack includes 5 Full Day Splash Passes at better prices.

The passes included in these packs can be used in a couple of different ways – by 3-5 people all at once on one visit, or only use only some of the Splash Passes the day of purchase and the rest on your next visit to the FunSplash. If used the day-of-purchase, you’ll receive wristbands right away for those and Splash Pass cards to simply present at your next visit. These are like cash (don’t lose them!) and also make great gifts!

Yes! You will receive a wrist band and this will allow you to come and go. If the wrist band begins to break, we ask that you come to our kiosk tent before it completely falls off to be replaced. We also ask that you return the life jacket to us to hang up each time you come off the FunSplash as we do not like these lying around on the beach, grass, and trees. If you can remember the number on your life jacket this will make it super easy for us to grab it for you again.

The 2 hour Splash Pass is for 2 consecutive hours. For example, if the wrist band is purchased at 11:15 it will expire at 1:15. The time it expires will be written on your wrist band and life guards will sometimes ask to see your wrist band to confirm your end time.

We are open Monday to Friday from 12:00 noon to 8:00 PM.

On weekends and holidays our hours are 11:00 AM to 8:00 PM.

Weather permitting.

Yes, everyone needs to complete our waiver before accessing the FunSplash once per season. We keep them on file for one summer. You are welcome to complete the waiver here online before coming out to save yourself time at the beach. All minors under the age of 18 need a parent or legal guardian to complete the waiver for them.

We encourage you to have their parents or legal guardians complete the waiver for them. The waiver can be completed online at any time and is valid for one season.

The FunSplash Sports Park opens daily unless we forecast thundershowers and storms for more than half the day. We do remain open during brief showers and rain as players on the park are generally wet already and enjoy playing in the rain. If thundershowers are brief during the day, we evacuate the park for the duration of the storm and remain closed for 20 minutes after the last strike of lightning to ensure the storm has passed. When we reopen, we then offer extensions to anyone with a 2 hour pass.

If we are closed for the day, this information will be posted on our website and on our social media.

Do not worry and simply have fun! Our lifeguards and staff are always listening and observing the weather conditions. We watch for lightning and listen for thunder to observe how far away the weather cell is. If it is too close, we will close and evacuate the park immediately. Three blasts of the air horn signal the order to evacuate the water park. We find that a lot of times thunderstorms seem to pass just of the FunSplash.

The FunSplash remains open during rain as many players find that they are wet anyway and it’s a lot of fun to play in the rain!

The FunSplash is one of the largest water parks of its kind in all of Canada with a large player capacity as well. We strive to keep our line ups short and we work very hard to get you and your group out into the fun as fast as possible. However at times there may be a short wait to access the sports park. On weekends we are generally busy, with a higher chance of line ups and on those days we often sell out of Full Day passes by early afternoon as well.

We do not offer any pre-booking except for larger groups of 10+. If you are with a larger group, please complete our booking form which provides us with a little more information so we can prepare for your group’s arrival.

The FunSplash Sports Park is is located in the St. Marys Quarry. There is an entrance fee for the quarry that is separate from the Splash Pass for the inflatable water park. Because the FunSplash is a separate business with a lease to operate at the Quarry, there is no combined price. Please refer to the Town of St. Marys Quarry website for their entrance fees. 

If you do not want to play on the water park, you do not need to purchase a Splash Pass. However, when entering the St. Marys Quarry there is still an entrance fee. Please refer to the St. Marys Quarry website for their entrance fees.

No pets are allowed at the quarry except during special events like the Pooch Plunge. Please visit the Town of St. Marys Quarry website for more information.

Sorry, the ONLY time refunds are given is if we have to close the FunSplash for the rest of the day before half your time has expired. If we’re able to reopen later in the day, we will give you an extension on your 2 hour Splash Pass.

We do not offer any special prices in this case however if an individual requires a full time aid, we will provide the aid with a free pass to accompany the player.

Yes you may, but be aware that if it falls into the water it will not be retrievable. Because of the bungies and tethers that anchor the water park, we do not allow any diving and it is also very difficult to see anything under the water.
