    Important Notices:

    1. Pre-purchased admissions may be exchanged or refunded up to the start of your swim time.  We are not able to offer refund or exchange services after this.
    2. Photo ID is required for your group to enter the facility.  If your swim admission is booked under "John Smith at 123 Main Street," then John Smith of 123 Main Street must bring his photo ID and present it to the staff to gain admission for his group.
    3. Early entrance is not permitted.
    4. A set number of swim admissions will be available for both pre-selling and walk-ups (no space for walk-ups are specifically reserved for Spring Break times).  All swim admissions are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
    5. Please note that all of our regular pool rules apply to our pre-sold swim admissions.  Please familiarize yourself with these rules as they are strictly enforced.
    6. In case of a pool closure, your group will be given a refund based on time of admission or a coupon for a future admission.  Please help us keep our facility open by encouraging children to use the toilet prior to swimming and to wait one hour after eating.  It's not a myth!  Pool foulings are a health hazard to all!
