Yes! Our Second Wave Discount is 50% off your next visit!
Here’s how it works: visit the park, purchase an all-day pass at full price, and come back any time this season (the next day, the next week, or late August, whenever works for you, there are no restrictions) and get in for half price. Just keep your receipt and save 50%.
Of course, if you intend to come back again and again, your best bet is to purchase a Season Pass. In addition to making huge savings on tickets, you also get other exclusive benefits at other local businesses.
Is it still called a “discount” if it’s completely free?
Big Surf is proud to honor our country’s servicemen and women by offering all active military unlimited admission to our park for free, all season long. It’s just our little way of saying thanks for all that they do. Just bring current military ID to qualify. In addition, we offer a 20% discount to all immediate family members of military personnel with their dependent IDs. Veterans also receive a 20% discount on tickets!
We get many requests for free tickets to include as auction items for fundraising events – everyone wants to come to Big Surf!
We do our best to accommodate as many of these requests as we can each season. Unfortunately, it’s simply not possible to do them all. Please send us a letter on your organization’s letterhead, preferably enclosing a flyer for the event in question. We have a limited amount of tickets that we can give away each season, so it is best to get your request in as early as possible.
The more information you can give us about the event, the better!
We have both. For small groups, we have cabanas located throughout the park that can be rented for the entire day. These are cool and shady and offer some privacy, too. You can either buy one when you arrive or purchase one ahead of time online (this is always a good idea for weekends).
For larger groups we have a stand-alone pavilion and also several other shaded structures that can be reserved for your party. Contact our group sales by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (573) 346 6111 to discuss group options and possibilities.
We do not allow outside food or beverage into Big Surf Waterpark.
However, we understand you may have allergies or other dietary restrictions - we recommend leaving a cooler in your car and using our outdoor picnic areas if you have the need for outside food. You will be able to re-enter the park after you have finished your lunch.
Once you have purchased your day pass you may come and go as often as you like during that day. Please make sure to check-in with a staff member before you leave, so they can mark you for re-entry.
Sorry, but no.
For safety, we only allow U.S. Coast Guard approved flotation devices into the park. Any USCG Approved flotation device will be listed as such on the label. You can learn more about USCG Approved flotation devices here.
Yes, lifejackets are available in all sizes, from infant to adult. They are provided throughout the park and free of charge. (Please do not leave the park with your Big Surf life jacket on).
You are welcome to bring your own life jackets as long as they are approved by the U.S. Coast Guard. Any USCG Approved flotation device will be listed as such on the label. You can learn more about USCG Approved flotation devices here.
The latest weather updates will always be posted on our Facebook Page. If you do not have internet access, you can always call us at (573) 346-6111.
If the forecast predicts severe weather, the waterpark will be closed for everyone's safety - staff and guests alike.
We hope to be open as much as possible, so we may open in the morning then be forced to close as severe weather approaches. But no need to worry - we have a Raincheck Policy in place.
Your family’s safety is our number one priority, and so we do have a few rules to make sure everyone stays safe. Children are allowed to ride down the following adult rides and attractions with a parent:
All other rides should be ridden alone. Of course, one of the best places for your toddler will be the Tropical Splash Island, which has been designed especially for our younger guests. This is a zero-entry pool with all sorts of fun things to keep kids entertained, from mini slides to a water teeter-totter and squirting animals!
