The official statement from Ocean Breeze is incredible.


I don’t know what the Virginia Department of Health is thinking, but this is NOT OK. The published VA Phase III guidelines CLEARLY allow water parks to reopen with a 1k attendance cap. Arbitrarily disallowing Ocean Breeze to operate the vast majority of their park within those guidelines 24 hours before their reopening is a massive, massive load of bullshit. This needs to be reversed immediately and I hope Ocean Breeze will pursue all means available to them to get this overturned.

Sorry for double posting but I just had another thought. I was hype because the 1000 person cap means less stress for me yanno? But without slides that means everyone’s gonna be shoved into just a few areas?? Which seems incredibly dangerous. And without slides that means we have less spots open which means they won’t need as many guards, which means scheduling is going to suck.

Are you usually a guard at the same slides, or do you get to rotate around to any position?

I'm assuming all guards are certified to work the whole park, but was more curious if guards are generally given a primary section for their rotations - a slide guard may not regularly cover wave pool, etc?

There are different types of lifeguards there. Deep Guard (they cover water that is 5 feet or deeper) and the is shallow guards (they cover everything else). Shallow guards normally cover the slide dispatches and sometimes the splash area while deep guards normally cover the deeper water like; the deeper ends of the wavepool, Hurricane’s splash, etc.

Ocean Breeze in my opinion did a fantastic job with opening and sanitation procedures. They sanitized each raft after each use for the Adventure River and Jungle Falls. They had the wave pool roped off except for a small opening where an employee was counting incoming and outgoing people for capacity purposes. Seating was in pods of 4 and were spaced out 6-10 feet apart. They also had a cleaning crew constantly cleaning tables and surfaces and hand sanitizer was all over the place. They did take the rolling log out of the pool so it is now just a pool. Overall we still had a great time even though the slides were closed. Season Pass holders even received 10 dollars to use for food or merchandise.

I wonder which ones their gonna open. I haven't been since the 6th and Operation Splashdown (still a shitty name) looked to be pretty close to completion (the sign looks great y'all!), but even if it is ready to go now I doubt they would open it at this point. Is there a specific amount of slides they can open? If so would they continue marketing Jungle Falls as a river so they still have an extra slide spot open? Or does it have to do with the type of slide? Because before the rule was that we couldn't run slides with water, which is why we could have the Coconut Drops and a few of the kiddie slides open. Because with that stipulation gone I don't see why they couldn't open all the slides. I have so many questions.
