What if I have questions before I arrive?
What if I have questions after I arrive?
Your comfort and enjoyable time spent here is of utmost importance to us. Please visit Mountain Creek Waterpark Guest Services with your questions.
What if I forgot my bathing suit, sunglasses or sunscreen?
All of these items and many more may be purchased at Currents, Tides and Crossings. Both retail stores accept cash or credit cards.
I am not going to swim. Do you have a spectator rate?
Mountain Creek Waterpark is a participatory park and therefore, we do not offer a discount for those who choose not to swim.
What about my valuables?
The best thing is to leave them at home. Please don’t bring them into the waterpark or leave them exposed in your car. Keyless entry car systems can become inoperable if they get wet. Lock money and keys in a locker* instead of keeping them in pockets where they may fall out in the rides. Mountain Creek Waterpark cannot be responsible for items that are lost or stolen from vehicles or from inside the waterpark.
*Lockers are available on a first come, first serve basis. Lockers are located in the boardwalk area of the park.
May I leave and re-enter the park without a charge?
You may exit the park and re-enter throughout the day as long as you have your original wristband on your wrist and it has been unaltered.

Can I bring a picnic?

No outside food or beverage is allowed to be brought into Mountain Creek Waterpark other than individual, sealed bottles of water. However, exceptions are made for Guests with special medical needs where their well-being may be compromised while in the park. These Guests will be permitted to bring in a small snack and juice to have on hand in case their wellness is compromised. Guests with special dietary needs such as allergies, may not bring food into the park, however, they can rent lockers at the base lodge and store their items securely while enjoying the park. The food may then be consumed outside the park in designated areas around the base lodge. Guests with special medical needs will be required to show proof of medical condition in the form of a physician’s note, medical device, tattoo, ID bracelet or approved medical card.
If you’re bringing a packed lunch, rent a reserved picnic table for the day just outside the main gate. You can leave your cooler on your reserved table, and come and go as you please with your picnic area wristband. There is a maximum of 10 people per table. Tables can be purchased at least 48 hours in advance. No cooking of any kind or any type of heating element are permitted on our property.
Do you provide first aid at Mountain Creek Waterpark?
All of Mountain Creek Waterpark water safety employees are trained in CPR. We also have EMT’s on staff and on site at the park. The park has a First-Aid station for our guest’s comfort and convenience.
Am I allowed to smoke in the waterpark?
Many of our guests choose not to wear footwear around the waterpark. For their safety and out of respect for those who prefer not to be exposed to smoke we do not allow smoking in the Waterpark.
What if it rains while we are there?
KEEP YOUR WRISTBAND! We will close our attractions when unsafe conditions are present (as determined by Management in conjunction with our weather service). We will re-open when weather conditions in our immediate area are safe to do so (we cannot guarantee ideal weather conditions). In the event we cannot re-open our attractions within 75 minutes, you’ll receive a full or twilight ticket for a return visit (your wristband must be intact and on your wrist to be valid for a raincheck). No refunds are issued regardless of time spent in the park.
Do I need to bring cash or do you accept debit & credit cards?
We do not accept debit cards at any of our points of purchase, unless your debit card has a Visa or MasterCard logo. There are ATMs located near admissions and also in the park near Mountain EATS. Be sure to carry your ID with you if you plan to use your Credit Card. For your protection and due to the high number of credit card and identity issues today, Mountain Creek Waterpark requires that a valid ID be presented at the time of any credit card transaction.
