The start of summer is just around the corner – let’s celebrate with a new sweepstakes!

But first, a public service announcement:

Please take some steps to Be Cool this summer and you’ll be glad you did!

It’s fun to plan a family day in the sun – but you’ll want to avoid getting overheated, sunburned, or dehydrated. Because that’s just … not cool.


Here are some tips:

  • Eat breakfast! Get something good in your stomach before you start your day. And don’t skip meals, even when it’s hot out.
  • Start hydrated and stay hydrated. Water is your best bet – four cups an hour is the recommendation. Gatorade is great, too, but balance with lots of water. (Both are free, along with lemonade, ice tea, and carbonated beverages, throughout both parks.) If you aren’t needing to visit the restroom as usual, you’re not drinking enough.
  • Pace yourself. In Splashin’ Safari, we have large water slides (you’ll stand in line for these), and also attractions where you can get right into the water with minimal or no wait: Bahari Wave Pool, The Wave, Bahari River and, for smaller children, Safari Sam’s SplashLand, Hyena Springs, Kima Bay and Monsoon Lagoon.
  • Apply sunscreen thoroughly and often. Our free sunscreen is 30 and 50 SPF; if you need a higher level of protection, please bring your own.
  • Super-short haircut (or a little thin on top)? Be sure to run sunscreen on your scalp. Or wear a cap.
  • Wear swim shoes. They may not be the most stylish of footwear, but they’ll protect your feet from hot pavement.

What is your best tip? Post it below and you could win four free tickets to Holiday World & Splashin’ Safari plus two overnights in a Christmas Cabin at Lake Rudolph Campground & RV Resort in July!

And that winner will be chosen at random.
