WISCONSIN DELLS, Wis. -- Noah's Ark Waterpark is reopening its doors to the public in Wisconsin Dells on June 20.

'America's Largest Waterpark' says it has prepared many new safety measures to keep guests safe in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.

“The health and safety of our Guests and Team Members continues to be our top priority as we work to reopen in this new environment,” said General Manager Mark Whitfield. “We will continue working in step with local leaders, health experts and our industry colleagues to ensure best practices are in place at Noah’s Ark.”

New safety measures include limiting capacity, pre-entry temperature checks, face coverings and PPE, social distancing, adding sanitizing stations, and enhancing cleaning measures, the park says.

Each pool, ride, slide, restaurant, and building will have limited capacity. That means guests will have to make specific RSVPs ahead of time. Face masks will be required for all employees and guests, except children under three years old. Guests will be asked to remove their masks while in pools and on water slides.

“We will serve our Guests safely and effectively by limiting capacity, verifying all entrants do not have a temperature of 100.4° F or higher and are wearing proper facial coverings, and following the CDC’s recommendations on cleaning, social distancing and sanitizing,” said Whitfield. “As America’s Largest Waterpark covering 70 acres, we have the space to effectively distance our visitors and provide the good, clean fun Noah’s Ark has been known for over the past four decades.”
