Signal Bay Waterpark
A 27,000 square foot aquatics facility that includes an activity pool with water cannons, slides, and a lazy river to take a leisurely inner tube ride. Sand volleyball and a snack bar are also available on site.
I liked the way the park was set-up and the fact you could see everything from one location.
We went the day after Irene hit and were the only ones there when they opened, and it was sunny, warm and windy. While I was paying I noticed right away that we were being given looks as if we were crazy for going there after a storm. It was my daughters birthday and we wanted to do something fun for her.
After 3 lifeguards switching out, the 4th one came over to us and told us we could not submerge ourselves under water due to the dye in the shirts. Instead of arguing, we just said okay but immediately noticed that she began following us around the pool area within 5 to ten feet, everywhere we went. The other lifeguards sat back and moved when they couldn't see my little one but this one literally followed us around until it was time for the 15 minute break, which became a 20 minute break. We next went to go to the lazy river which we were told my little one was not tall enough, okay, so she could ride with one of us. Nope. I just stood there baffled, because everywhere else I have ever been has allowed this, especially when she was smaller. I said okay, lets go back to the other area. When we got back to the other area, we noticed that the staff was having races climbing these tents that have bars that go up, which they were climbing like the monkey bars. We continued to play and we noticed another play area on the other side of the park, which we walked toward. When we got there we tried out this floating walkway, where I ended up submerged with my shirt on and then when it was my daughters turn, they told us she wasn't tall enough. We walked all the way around, and was only told that she wasn't tall enough when she was going to get on the walkway. As we were going back to the other side, we were told we had to remove our shirts before we entered the pool due to the dye. I had enough at this point because I have never heard of anywhere where there is any relevance to dye effecting the water in a pool. The community where Iive at, has a pool and people wear shirts. The great wolf lodge, communtiy pools in fredericksburg, charlottesville, YMCA, gordonsville all have pools and never mentioned anything regarding dye from shirts effecting water in a pool. My brother worked for a pool chemical company and I asked him about this and he laughed because he said it was bogus as well.
This is a pool for young children. The deepest part goes to 3.5 feet (i guess), my son could reach and he's 5. Come prepared though.. the snack bar is NOT the best. I gave up on that the first year they opened and it hasn't gotten better. One of the BEST things about the place is they do allow you to bring in coolers!! They ask that you keep off the deck while eating. If you are descret they let you slide. Shade & seat are also limited make sure you show up early or latetr in the day to get a spot. I also had big problems with my swim top. They did not believe it was a swim top and made a sceen about the situatuion. But other than that I really like the place. You dont really have to be on top of your kids and it's a place for them.
First off there were rules about food and the fact that one needed to wear a swimsuit (adult and child) if they were going to be in the water area. There was a family who decided they didn't need to follow the rules as far as swimwear and food in the water area was concerned. The lifeguards were great about getting them on track and watching the kids, making sure they used the slides safely.
It was a bit crowded today (7/27) but most people were pretty nice.
The only complaint I would have was the restrooms were not clean.
They do take credit cards for the entrance fees but not for the snack bar.
I wish they had more covered areas as it gets very hot out there.
I love this park for my little ones, and they do too. However, unless something has changed since I was last there, they don't take credit cards, so make sure you have enough cash with you (I'm not sure about checks).
Not too bad for the price. I don't mind the kids. They stay in the shallow pool mostly. I really enjoy the lazy river. There are several pavilions and grills and a sand vball court (accessible through pool entrance).
This waterpark is perfect if you have younger kids. My 3.5 year old had a blast and didn't want to leave. You can see the whole park from your lounge chair and the only restriction is 43" or taller to be allowed on the lazy river. The water is only about 2 feet or less and there are a lot of slides for the little ones. The only downside is the 15min break at the end of each hour, I guess for the lifeguards/kids to have a scheduled break. While there are some good aspects to that break at the same time you are paying admission to use the park and shouldn't have your access restricted every hour, it caused a lot of the little ones to have meltdowns when they were forced out at the end of the hour. Overall a great waterpark and much better than Splashdown for the little ones as it's much easier to keep an eye on them and much less crowded.
My kids 7 and 4 love this park. I love it because I don't worry if they aren't always in my sight. They have freedom to roam around the pool area on their own. Very family friendly and safe. I just don't like that you're not allowed to eat on the pool deck during the 15 minute break time. There is a small eating area on the other side of the pool area and it's kind of inconvient. So have your kids sneak their snacks!
Very reasonably priced, clean and perfect for small children. They open at 11:00 on week days and I recommend getting there a little before 11:00 to park and get your tickets.
They also have HUGE umbrellas- tons of shade for infants.
