Sun Splash offers free admission for fathers this weekend
Cape Coral’s water park is celebrating Father’s Day weekend by offering free admission.
Fathers get into Sun Splash Family Waterpark for free on Saturday and Sunday with the purchase of a regular-priced child or teen general admission ticket. The park offers the same during Mother’s Day.
“It promotes families to be together – we even see more grandparents,” Sandi Greiner, the park’s manager, said. “I think it’s a good way to keep the family together, no matter what the generations are.”
On Sunday, the park will be open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. It will be open until 9 p.m. on Saturday, however, as the park will be offering the extended hours as it hosts one of its Saturday Slide Nights.
“You can really spend all day at the park,” she said.
In addition to getting in for free this weekend, fathers will have the chance to win more than $1,400 worth of raffle prizes. As fathers enter the park, they will each receive one entry form to fill out.
“They fill it out and put it in the box,” Greiner said.
The prizes are a three-day, two-night stay at the Port of the Islands Everglades Adventure Resort, valued at approximately $500, as well as free rounds of golf at the Coral Oaks Golf Course.
“I’d say that’s about a $100 value because its with golf and a cart,” she said.
There is also a commercial edger from Mere’s Lawnmower Sales and Service, valued at $389, and a $250 gift card to the Under Armour Factory House, located at the Sanibel Outlets in Fort Myers.
At 4 p.m. Sunday, Greiner will pulls the winners for both days.
“They don’t have to be present to win,” she said.
According to Greiner, construction is still ongoing on the new clubhouse. The original building was lost in a fire in July. She noted that the walls are up and things are moving along with the project.
“We’re still serving food out of the trailer and the original ice cream shop,” Greiner said.
However, the new Pirate’s Cove attraction has become a big hit for visitors.
“This is a way to come see it in a more economical way,” she said.
Greiner invited the public to swing by this weekend.
“It would be a good way to come visit the park inexpensively with dad,” she said.
“Come on out and come out early, in case it does rain,” Greiner added.
A child’s ticket for ages 2-12 costs $14.95 for Cape residents and $17.95 for non-residents. Ages 13 and older must purchase an adult ticket; it costs $16.95 for Cape residents and $19.95 for non-residents.
Parking costs $5 per day or $2 for season pass holders.
