The World Waterpark in Edmonton, Canada has reopened its doors to the public as of July 18th, 2020 after being shut down due to the coronavirus pandemic on March 16th.
World Waterpark is one of the world’s largest indoor waterparks with the ability to handle up to 40,000 guests.
The World Waterpark will be significantly limiting capacity and enforcing mask usage while not using slides or pools.
“World Waterpark has significantly reduced capacity of the park to ensure all precautionary measures are effectively implemented. To allow guests more flexibility to visit the park on their day of choice, we have adjusted our operational hours to run two 4-hour sessions each day of the week.

• Directional and safety signage throughout the park

• Physical distancing has been implemented throughout World Waterpark as we have significantly reduced our guest capacity
