Cowabunga Bay is a privately owned park. We rely on admission to maintain operations. Therefore all who enter must pay admission. Price of admission includes seating, restrooms, and use of a clean, safe, secure and well maintained facility. If you choose not to swim or enter any of the water attraction please notify the cashier at the time you purchase your ticket and you will be issued a “spectator wristband” At the end of your visit present your receipt at the guest service window. If the chemical-sensitive wristband indicates you have not been in the water we will issue you a $5.00 refund.
