Water World to Open Memorial Day Weekend!
Colorado’s Community-owned Waterpark Receives Official Thumbs Up to Open
FEDERAL HEIGHTS, COLORADO – April 7, 2021: Hyland Hills Water World will open for the season on Saturday, May 29, 2021, as it has traditionally for the Memorial Day weekend – but with reduced attendance capacity and pandemic cleaning and operational protocols in place. The park was given an official go-ahead from Adams County and the Tri-County Health Department after submitting a comprehensive operational plan for consideration in March.
“We are excited to open and grateful that our plan was reviewed and approved as written, yet we know there will likely be adjustments as it is actually put into practice, because, as always, the safety of our guests will eclipse all other considerations,” said park spokesperson, Joann Cortéz.
The park plan includes pre-visit ticketing, reduced attendance, health and safety protocols for team members and guests, including social distancing and mask wearing when not in the water or on an attraction, greater food safety procedures, enhanced ride cleaning by a designated clean team and much more to keep people safe.
“Covid-19 has altered our lives in many ways, and the waterpark experience is no exception. We just ask that guests be patient as we navigate through the opening of our unique family entertainment venue” Cortéz continued, “We will not hesitate to make needed adjustments as they present themselves to keep everyone safe.”
Water World plans to keep an open, respectful, ongoing dialogue with health officials to remain on course and to collectively anticipate any operational changes that might be required.
“Water World is such an icon in the Adams County community and we are looking forward to having it open this year,” said Eva J. Henry, Adams County Commissioner and Board Chair. “With proper protocols in place, and limited capacity, families can once again get out and enjoy the water and sun this summer.”
“We appreciate all the thought and consideration that went into Water World’s reopening plan,” said Jennifer Ludwig, Deputy Director of Tri-County Health Department. “They clearly prioritized health and safety for their employees and attendees. We are glad they are able to open this summer and to be a part of the planning process.”
