When you plan a visit to any water park in India, the most crucial thing to do is to familiarize yourself with the regulations before you actually start. Nowadays, most water parks have their own websites and so gathering details about dress codes is not a magical elixir. They would have specified if there are any specific dress codes to be followed by visitors.
In addition, they would also have specified whether visitors can bring in their own foods or not. It is better to prepare a checklist of items to be carried and what not to carry, such that you can avoid last minute rush. Most water parks in India have a swimwear policy in place. Here are some rules related to this policy followed by Indian water parks:
When you visit water parks and specifically water rides, you should wear appropriate swimwear. The costume that you wear should be durable for use on water attractions and slides. In case the park authorities feel your dress to be offensive or inappropriate, they have the right to evict you from the ride. In the case of women with long hair, they should make sure that the hair is tied appropriately. Also, toddlers and babies, who are not yet practiced to use toilets, should be worn swim-nappies when inside the park.
Apart from these general instructions, some parks also give some specific instructions to ensure the safety of the visitors to the park. Here are some instructions given to visitors:
- Swimwear is recommended mainly to ensure the safety of the visitors. If appropriate costume is not worn, you might be asked to change or leave the ride.
