Splish Splash announces May 29 reopening; plans to hire roughly 1,000 workers
Splish Splash Waterpark has announced in will officially reopen on Saturday, May 29.
The water park has been closed since Labor Day 2019 – a 627-day closure caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
The water park says the first step to its comeback is hiring roughly 1,000 season staffers to provide a clean, safe and fun experience for its visitors.
“We’re so excited to get back to the business of fun here at Splish Splash,” said General Manager Mike Bengtson. “Creating opportunities for people to get back to work is an important step in the recovery process, and we will keep safety as our top priority for staff and applicants throughout the recruitment, orientation and training process.”
Splish Splash Waterpark says it will follow recommendations and rulings from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, New York Department of Health, and best practices within the amusement and attractions industries.
In addition, management says recruiters will conduct interviews virtually for job positions, and orientation and training will be mostly virtual.  Any in person trainings will require facial coverings, strict adherence to state capacity limitations, and social distancing.
Water park officials say in appreciation for their patrons’ patience and support through the challenges of the past year, all 2020 Season Passes have been extended to include the 2021 season.
