Sun Splash wraps up season with special pricing

By Staff | Sep 20, 2018

Sun Splash Family Waterpark is wrapping up its 2018 season over the next two weekends, offering discounted rates for residents who would like to enjoy the attractions before they close until March of 2019.

A special admission price of $10 per person(plus tax) will be available the weekends of Sept. 22-23 and Sept. 29-30.

“This is the last chance for guests to slide into Sun Splash this season, but at great savings,” said Sandie Greiner, waterpark manager. “We encourage everyone to come out and take advantage of the special $10 pricing and enjoy the waterpark one final time before we close for the year. It’s our way of saying thank you for the community’s ongoing support.”

Sun Splash is Southwest Florida’s largest waterpark, and has lots to offer 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.

Flumes, 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 Greiner.

“It’s a great place to cool off and relax, you’ll want to come back.”

Some big changes have been taken on this year, and Sun Splash has had an eventful off season, according to Greiner.

“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.”

Unfortunately, the new “Pirates Cove” attraction will be closed for the remainder of the season due to a manufacturers defect with the flooring.

“It will be good to go next year,” Greiner said.

Another potential addition at Sun Splash next year could be the sale of beer and alcohol.

This is something Greiner is hoping will be available for next season.

As the year wraps up for Sun Splash, Greiner is pleased with the reception from patrons on their renovations.

“I’m happy with our new buildings,” she said.

Sun Splash could also see more improvements if the highly debated $60 million parks GO?bond referendum is passed in November.

The recent water quality issues may have played a part in attendance at the waterpark this season, which Greiner agreed may be true, though she said the numbers were about the same as last year in terms of attendance.

Sun Splash is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

No special coupon is required for the discounted entry, though it cannot be combined with any other offers.

Sun Splash also asks that people arrive early to ensure admittance, with the park’s capacity at 1,300.

Sun Splash is at 400 Santa Barbara Boulevard in Cape Coral.
