Any authorized operation of aerial drones may be governed by Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) rules and regulations, local law enforcement, as well as those policies separately established by H2OBX Waterpark, which may include certification, training, insurance coverage, indemnification requirements, and waivers or releases of liability. Any violation of this policy may subject violators to any damages, including, but not limited to, damages for violations of privacy and/or physical or personal injuries or property damage, as well as regulatory fines and legal fees.

Map and Directions

For comfort and convenience, H2OBX Waterpark requires that all guests wear appropriate swimwear. Proper swimwear is defined as a properly fitting and covering, one or two piece swimsuit or shorts that stop above or just below the knees. Thong bottoms, cut-offs, and suits with excessive buckles, rivets, and zippers are not permitted. Children must use diaper covers while enjoying the waterpark attractions.

Also, you and your family will probably be most comfortable if you wear water shoes or flip-flops. If you happen to forget something at home, you can stop by Wright Stuff near the entrance for all your water park essentials and H2OBX Waterpark souvenirs. Clothing and tattoos must not depict or display any lewd, offensive, or vulgar pictures and/or language. Turning clothing inside out so as to conceal these offenses is not permissible.

You may, but please know that the floatation devices you bring must meet US Coast Guard standards, so air-filled swimmies are not sufficient. However, we have plenty of lifejackets available throughout the park, free for your use! Speaking of swimmer safety, please observe all height restrictions, and take comfort in knowing that H2OBX Waterpark is 100% compliant with the Virginia Graeme Baker Act.

At H2OBX Waterpark, we have tried to think of everything to make your day a little easier. To start, we have plenty of bathrooms located throughout the waterpark. Facilities are well marked and our staff monitors them throughout the day to keep them clean and fresh.
