Is there a possibility Paradise Bay Water Park can open at some point this 2020 season?

Paradise Bay Water Park is currently not scheduled to open for the 2020 season. Everyone who purchased a season pass should have received a refund in May. It takes several weeks to prep the pool for opening, which includes filling and treating the water, cleaning and setting up the facility, recruiting, hiring and training lifeguards, on boarding guest service staff and purchasing necessary equipment and supplies. In a normal year, the pool is filled and staff are hired and trained by May, but due to the circumstances, this was not possible.

In addition, in order to operate Paradise Bay Water Park, staff would need to comply with social distancing guidelines, gathering limits and cleaning/disinfecting guidelines, many of which have yet to be fully developed for swimming pools. It was unclear how the pools would be able to open safely and still comply with those strict limits and protocols issued by the CDC and Illinois Department of Public Health, and therefore the decision was made to remain closed. This closure also means that swim lessons and aquatic programs will not be held this summer. Staff will continue to monitor future updates from the Illinois Department of Public Health.
