Vernon’s new Splashdown waterslide park will open this weekend

After operating as Atlantis Waterslides for over two decades, Vernon’s popular waterpark has a new name and some new COVID-19 friendly rules.

Splashdown Vernon will officially open the floodgates on Saturday, July 18, after being purchased by the same owner as Cultus Lake waterpark in 2019.

To reduce capacity during COVID-19, the rebranded waterpark will operate in four-hour sessions, two times a day.

The first session runs from 10 am to 2 pm and the second operates from 3 pm to 7 pm.

There are no reservations, so customers are asked to arrive early to ensure entry and can expect to enter the facility no earlier than 30 minutes before opening.

Tickets cost a flat rate of $25 for all ages, with kids under 36 inches tall getting in for free alongside a paid adult.

Guests are also being asked to shower, change into their swimwear at home and arrive in groups six or less.

The park’s concession stand and ice cream shop will be open.
