http://photos3.meetupstatic.com/photos/event/5/e/d/a/event_207564282.jpegVoted one of the five Best Waterparks in America by the Travel Channel!
Ummm, yeah, I'm not one to believe the hype of the media juggernaut, I'm a seeing is believing kind of dude. Come join me as I try to decide whether to give this place the Kevin seal of approval, let's spend a summer day playing at Long Island's Splish Splash Waterpark.
Ninety-six acres of fun. Numerous rides, slides, waves, rivers and pools. If you can't find something here that will bring a smile to your face check your pulse because you are probably dead.
Want more info on the park? You know what to do HERE (http://splishsplashlongisland.com/).
What does is cost?
Group admission will be $36.00 per person (A $7.50 savings over the regular price). I'll be buying the tickets beforehand and distributing them onsite.
Please send $36.00 to me via PayPal at [masked]. Click the "Send Money" tab and check "Send money to family and friends" when sending payment to avoid having PayPal charge a transaction fee. Write Splish Splash Payment in the subject line of the "email to recipient" section. Please also write your meetup screen name in the email body section so I know who the payment is from. Until I receive your payment your RSVP is not confirmed and your attendance is not guaranteed. Once I have confirmation of receipt of your payment I will move you from the wait list to confirmed RSVP status. Refunds will be given only if the meetup is cancelled, rescheduled, or requested 5 or more days in advance of the meetup date. Parking fee is $12.00 per car. This is a limited attendance event. Once capacity is reached among both meetup groups RSVPs will be closed, so don't wait to pay.
The important stuff ...
Appropriate swimwear is required. Thong bottoms, cut off shorts, excessive buckles or ill-fitting suits are not allowed. No masks, swim fins, snorkels or shoes allowed either although you may wear aqua socks. No food, glass, or sharp objects are allowed to be brought into the park. You may carry in unopened bottles of water though. There is a picnic area outside the park in case you'd like to bring food from home for a healthier and cheaper lunch. Storage lockers are available on site for rental. Life jackets are available to borrow for a $40.00 deposit or with a valid photo ID. Severe rain or similar un-favorable weather cancels the meetup. Check your email the evening before for last minute meetup updates as well as my mobile phone number which will be sent to those who RSVP. How do I get there ...
One word -- carpool. Or drive yourself. The water park is about 1.5 hours from midtown Manhattan so let's hitch the horses up to the chuck wagons and get a caravan going.
If you plan to drive and are willing to carpool, please post in your RSVP where you are leaving from and how many people you can carry. If you'd like to carpool with someone please post your request and where you are located. Please don't wait to be offered a ride, BE PROACTIVE and contact any drivers directly to work out transportation details. As courtesy, passengers should pick up tolls and gas.
