Sun Splash celebrates mom: Cape’s water park offers free admission to moms this weekend
Mothers looking for a day of relaxation, fun rides and cool waters need not to look any further than Southwest Florida’s largest water park.
Sun Splash Family Waterpark is once again treating mothers to a weekend of free admission with a paid kid or regular-priced ticket in honor of Mother’s Day.
Waterpark Manager Sandy Grenier said this a tradition they hope to continue for many years to come.
“All mothers can enter our park this Saturday and Sunday for no admission price with the purchase of a child or regular admission ticket.”
“It’s a way of honoring the moms in the area and we make it affordable to them if they otherwise couldn’t make it out to Sun Splash,” Grenier added.
Raffle prizes will also be available for moms to take a chance at receiving some great gifts.
Included will be a two-night, three-day stay at Gullwing Beach Resort, a $250 gift card to Sanibel Outlets and an Ideal Image underarm laser hair removal treatment.
“We love giving out these wonderful prizes to our moms,” said Grenier.
The winners will be drawn on Sunday at 4 p.m., and mothers do not have to be present to claim their prize.
“Our turnout is always great to see,” said Grenier of the annual event.
Sun Splash also provides the same discount on Father’s Day.
Some big changes have been taken on this year, and Sun Splash has had an eventful off season, according to Grenier.
“This is the first time the park has been all together since our unfortunate fire in 2016. We have a new cafe, new guest relations center and a new gift shop. These new amenities make us more efficient in helping customer the way they should be served.”
In her nine years working at the park, she feels this season has a whole new feel to it.
“The park looks beautiful, we have done so many wonderful upgrades, including a new logo. It feels fresh.”
The new “Pirates Cove” has also been a great addition to the waterpark.
“We build Pirates Cove for the kids, but we see the adults having just as much fun!” said Grenier.
Sun Splash has lots to offer not just kids, but the whole family.
You can relax along the Main Stream River Tube Ride as is gently navigates you through the park.
For the more adventurous, Thunder Bump, Terror Tube and the X-celerator drop guests down a steep incline, perfect for the adrenaline rush you’re looking for.
Flume”s, tunnels and slides all find a home at Sun Splash, varying in size and ferocity.
“Come and check out our park and all of our new renovations,” said Grenier.
“It’s a great place to cool off and relax, you’ll want to come back.”
Sun Splash is currently open on Saturdays and Sundays only from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. The park’s seven day a week operating schedule will begin on Thursday, May 31, and run through Aug. 9, weather permitting.
Sun Splash is at 400 Santa Barbara Blvd.
