Will our session be cancelled if it rains?
You still take part in the rain. Our theory is…you are going to get wet anyway and it is great fun in the rain. We have wet suits available to hire.
What happens if I am late due to poor traffic?
We will do our best to get you on the session as soon as possible, however this cannot be guaranteed. If you miss your session, no refund will be given. We cannot be held responsible if you are late. That is why we strongly suggest you get to the park at least 45 minutes before your booked session. Therefore if you are booked on at 1pm, you will need to arrive before 12.15pm to enable us to check your waiver and book you in.
What happens in extreme weather conditions like high winds?
There may be instances when Southlake Aqua Park need to cancel a booking. This could be for a number of reasons, but the most likely is extreme weather such as high winds. If we do need to cancel your booking we will give you as much notice as we can. We will use the information provided at the time of booking (email and phone number) to contact you. Please ensure you check your emails and phone before setting off. If this unfortunate event does happen, you will be able to rebook for another day.
