COVID-19 Guidelines

Enchanted Forest Water Safari Guest Expectations

Updated Thursday, 7/8/20

Despite best efforts to prepare the park for a healthy and safe experience, Enchanted Forest Water Safari has NOT yet been given the approval to open. We are ready and will open as soon as we are allowed. Reservations have been temporarily suspended until we have a definitive answer from NYS on when we can open. If you have existing reservations, you do NOT need to cancel your reservation, you will just need to make a new reservation with your existing tickets once our opening date is confirmed if your reservation was scheduled before our opening date.  Please check back for updates.

Thank you for your understanding. All of our Team Members are as anxious to open the doors as you are to enjoy the park.  We look forward to seeing you soon!

Exposure to COVID-19 is an inherent risk; any interaction with the general public poses an elevated risk of being exposed to COVID-19, and we cannot guarantee that you will not be exposed during your visit.

Please note the CDC advises that older adults and people of any age who have serious underlying medical conditions might be at higher risk for severe illness from COVID-19. Guests should evaluate their risk in determining whether to attend. We appreciate your cooperation during this unprecedented time. Visit the CDC website for the latest guidelines.

RESERVATIONS REQUIRED - Limiting Capacity – Plan Ahead, Reserve Early

Reservations are required for all guests to visit Water Safari. Reservations MUST be completed online prior to your visit. (If you do not have online access, please call 315-369-6145) Guest may buy tickets online while making a reservation. If buying tickets from a third party, you must have your tickets in hand for validation to make a reservation. We ask that guests try to avoid coming right at opening to avoid longer entrance lines. Park reservations guarantee entrance to the park. There may be times when the Park reaches capacity and additional guests will not be admitted if you do not have  a reservation.  Plan ahead and make reservations early!

WEAR A MASK

All guests are required to wear a face-covering (mask) to enter the Park and while in the park. If you do not have a face covering, we will have them available for purchase, subject to availability. Per CDC guidelines, children under the age of three are not required to wear facial coverings. A mask is not required when seated with your traveling party if you are at least 6 feet away from other groups. More info below on water slides and pools.

MASKS NOT PERMITTED IN WATER
