Safety is our priority at the Splash. If the closure is lightning related, an attempt will be made to reopen the facility following a 30-minute safety period. In the event the facility is closed for the remainder of the day, a rain check may be provided. If you have been in attendance at the Splash for 3 hours or more, service will be considered rendered and no rain check will be issued. Your admission receipt will serve as proof of purchase and must be presented in order to be considered for a rain check. Rain checks are not applicable during twilight hours. Rainchecks will expire two weeks after the issue date.
