Frequently Asked Questions

What are the new Public Pool Regulations affecting Big Splash Waterpark?

You can download the 2018 Public Pool Regulations update notice.

Can we bring our own coolers?

Bingemans offers concessions that serve a variety of items, such as pizza, hamburgers, snacks, ice cream, as well as Boston Pizza (which will deliver to the Big Splash patio).

We do permit small coolers (that one person can carry) with food and beverages into the park, however coolers are not to exceed the maximum size of 8.5L or 23.6” x 28.7” x 32.8”.

Coolers are not allowed inside the FunworX building. Coolers will be inspected for glass, sharp objects and alcoholic beverages which are not permitted. Prepared foods (such as fast food from outside vendors) are also not permitted into the park.


Are there any restrictions for the various activities?

Yes, the following activities have restrictions:

Torpedo Bay and Full Throttle are designed with run outs, meaning that riders do not enter a pool at any time.

The Cyclone free-falls into a landing pool and is therefore not recommended for novice swimmers.

Can we use any part of your park for our own picnic/bbq?

Yes, guests may use picnic tables located outside of the park near FunworX for picnic lunches (no BBQs). All picnic shelters in the park are reserved for pre-booked group events through our sales office. Bingemans is a privately owned park and anyone attempting to use these areas of the park for their own unauthorized event will be asked to leave the park, or pay a rental fee.
