In an effort to provide a safe and enjoyable waterpark experience for our guests, Castaway Bay Waterpark routinely utilizes training exercises to improve our lifeguards’ skills and vigilance. These exercises will occur during normal operating hours and may consist of the following: submersible water manikins, the use of video surveillance equipment, internal and external audits, active/inactive water rescues and/or first aid scenarios.

Life jackets are available for use throughout Castaway Bay. Life jackets are complimentary and are available to any guest wishing to use one. Children, first-time swimmers, and weaker swimmers are encouraged to wear a life jacket. Some attractions require guests below a specific height to wear a life jacket before participating in the attraction. Aquatics staff and lifeguards reserve the right to impose the use of life jackets as needed. For specific attraction requirements, please click here. Guests are permitted to wear their own life jacket; however it must be U.S. Coast Guard Approved.
