Guests who are not fully confident in their swimming ability should wear a life vest. A life vest makes everyone feel more comfortable in the water and it’s always better to be safe than sorry. They are free of charge and available at most water attractions on a first come, first serve basis. If you choose to bring your own personal flotation safety device, it must be U.S. Coast Guard-approved.
If you don’t feel like lugging your belongings around all day, locker rental is available. Just head over to Noah’s Bathhouse Lockers.
RAFTS & TUBE RENTAL
Rides that require tubes have them available at the attraction. Please use yours once, then hand it to the next person in line. If you want to rent a personal tube for the whole day, you can pick one up at the raft rental building. For your safety, no outside recreational flotation devices are allowed in The Great Escape & Hurricane Harbor.
