We can’t wait to welcome you to 13 acres of rides, slides and waves! To help you get ready for your White Water adventure, we’ve put together some tips & tricks for a great visit as well as answers to some of the most common questions we hear from first-time visitors. Here are our top 5 things to know before you go.
1. Where is White Water?
While many theme parks & water parks are located at the same property or adjacent to one another, Silver Dollar City & White Water are a little different. Silver Dollar City lies about six miles to the west of town, while White Water is actually located in the heart of Branson on 76 Country Blvd. So, if you have multi-park tickets and would like to visit both in the same day, be sure to include travel time into your plan.
2. Dining at White Water
A lot of first-time visitors have questions about what type of food is available in White Water and whether or not they can bring their own meals, snacks and beverages into the park with them. Here are some important tips regarding food and beverage at White Water:
Many eateries are available within the park and serve family-favorite meals like pizza, BBQ, tacos and more. Plus, you’ll also find snacks and treats including funnel cakes, ice cream, Dippin’ Dots, pretzels and nachos. A variety of locations carry beverages such as bottled water, ICEE, Coca-Cola products and coffee drinks. You can explore menus here. >
Coolers are not allowed in White Water. If you would like to leave a cooler in your car, you can exit the park and relax in our complimentary covered dining pavilion located on the grounds near the parking lot. You can then return to the park during the same day with your original tickets.
Guests may bring an unopened bottle of water for each family member as well as individually packaged, nonperishable children’s snacks.
Glass containers and alcoholic beverages are not permitted inside White Water.
3. Is there an ideal way to navigate the park?
Wayfinding at White Water is pretty easy. The terrain is mostly flat and you will encounter plenty of signage to help you get to your next slide or pool. A good rule of thumb is that kids’ areas including Coconut Cove and Splashaway Cay, along with family favorites like Surf’s Up Wave Pool and Aloha River are located on the left side of the park. The bigger slides and Ohana Falls are situated to the right side.
4. Lockers, Seating and More
You can keep your belongings dry and secure with conveniently-located lockers. Lockers can be rented for $15 per day with an additional $5 fully-refundable deposit. Family lockers are also available for $23 per day plus a $5 refundable deposit. In addition, you can also get a Locker Season Pass valid each operating day through September 4, 2023 for $55 plus tax. The lockers and rental kiosk are near the Surf’s Up Wave Pool.
Plenty of free seating is available throughout the park with lots of lounge chairs near all the pools and play areas. If you want to make sure you always have a shady spot plus great amenities, consider renting a private cabana. There are several options available for maximum comfort. Explore cabanas here. >
Another way to upgrade your visit is with premium add-ons including the Splash Pass—Skip-The-Line Ride Passes. Check out add-on options here. >
5. Dress For a Great Day
Even though White Water offers plenty of opportunities to take a break in the shade it’s still important to be safe and protect your skin, so don’t forget to use lots of sunscreen! Water shoes are also a great idea. During the peak of summer walking surfaces can get pretty toasty. Finally, you can check out the full White Water dress code here to ensure you’re dressed for a great day.
