Greenville County Rec is committed to maintaining a safe and healthy environment for both our employees and guests during the COVID-19 pandemic.  In accordance with this commitment, the following actions and preventative measures have been implemented at all 3 waterpark locations, including Discovery Island, Otter Creek and 7th Inning Splash. In return, we ask that when you visit our parks you show respect for staff and others by obeying social distancing, utilizing sanitation stations and exercising patience when approaching slides and attractions.

Tickets & Waterpark Entry

  • Entry is divided into two lines, one for pass holders and those who purchased advanced tickets and one for patrons who need to purchase a ticket. We recommend purchasing tickets online to minimize time spent in line. 
  • Tape on the ground marks 6 foot distances to guide those who are waiting. All lines will be moved to outside areas only. There will be no lines formed inside of buildings.
  • Signs are posted to remind customers to social distance and follow safe practices

  • Self-service payment options are available by credit card
