Know Before You Go

Health and safety tips to protect against COVID-19

We are so excited to welcome you and your family back!

We want you to know the health and safety of our Guests and Team Members is our top priority. We are fully committed to creating the cleanest and safest environment possible for your visit.

The way we will operate this summer is significantly different from what we are all used to as we adapt to the new landscape created by COVID-19. While we are committed to enhanced standards in an effort to keep you as healthy and safe as possible, there remains an inherent and elevated risk of exposure to COVID-19 in any public place and any place where people are present. Please, read this page fully to ensure the best experience possible as you plan your visit and join us at America’s Largest Waterpark®.

Planning a Visit

In order to comply with key health and safety measures surrounding limiting capacity, social distancing, and touch-free payment, planning a visit to Noah’s Ark will look different this summer.

  • Guests are strongly encouraged to register for the date they wish to visit in advance. Guests are able to visit without having selected a visit date, however, they are not guaranteed entry that day if the park has pre-booked or already reached its predetermined maximum capacity. Season Pass Holders, Hotel Guests, and those who have previously purchased day tickets will NOT need to choose a day.
  • If the date you wish to visit is not listed in our online calendar, we have already hit our capacity limit for that date, and you will need to choose another day.
  • All those wishing to enter Noah’s Ark Waterpark (Guests, Team Members, Suppliers, and Contracted Partners) will have their temperatures scanned before entering the park.
  • Any person with a temperature of 100.4°F or higher, or displaying other symptoms of COVID-19, will be denied entry.
  • Facial coverings are also required for all entrances, enclosed locations (retail stores, bathrooms, locker pavilions, First Aid, etc.), except children under three. Facial coverings are NOT allowed on any attraction or pool and are not necessary while waiting in line or walking between attractions.
  • Some rides and attractions will not be available this summer due to the pandemic. Please visit our Attractions page for planned closures. This page will be updated as frequently as possible.
  • Face shields are not permitted on any attraction and are not a substitute for a facial covering. Face shields are permitted within the park when worn with a facial covering.

While we are committed to enhanced standards in an effort to keep you as healthy and safe as possible, there remains an inherent and elevated risk of exposure to COVID-19 in any public place and any place where people are present. People who do not show symptoms can still spread COVID-19. COVID-19 is an extremely contagious disease that can lead to severe illness and death. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, senior citizens and persons with underlying medical conditions are especially vulnerable and at higher risk for severe illness.

Guests should familiarize themselves with guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and evaluate their risk in determining whether they should attend our facilities. If you or a family member are ill or think that you may be getting ill, please postpone your visit until you are well.

By visiting our facility, you voluntarily assume all risks related to exposure to COVID-19.

Our highest priority remains the safety of all of our Team Members and Guests, and we’re closely following the guidelines set forth by the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention, and Wisconsin Department of Health Services, along with other government officials and health experts. Some of our evolving sanitation procedures include:


• Making sure rides and other areas are clean and hygienic
• Communicating and promoting the need to maintain social distance
• Promoting regular and thorough hand washing by Team Members, Contractors and Guests
• Installing sanitizing hand rub dispensers in prominent places around the park to facilitate handwashing amongst Guests
• Promoting good respiratory hygiene in the workplace
• Encouraging Guests and Team Members to stay home if you are exhibiting any symptoms of COVID-19, or have been in contact with anyone who has been diagnosed with COVID-19, shown symptoms, or themselves come into contact with an individual at risk or suspected of having contracted COVID-19.
• Educating all Team Members about illness prevention, preparedness and response
