General Policy & Guidelines

  1. The cost of a birthday party is $13 per person (child or adult) including tax. That price includes admission to the aquatic park & a meal for each member of your party.
  2. You must pay for a minimum of 10 guests. The maximum number of guests is 30.
  3. Your final guest count & meal order must be given to your party host/hostess upon arrival on the day of your party before you enter the aquatic park.
  4. If more than 10 people are attending your party, the balance of your payment will be due prior to entering the aquatic park. You will pay the party host/hostess on site.
  5. No one will be allowed to enter the aquatic park for free. Adult chaperones must either be paid for as party guests or they must pay full price for admission.
  6. You will receive admission tickets from your host/hostess on the day of your party. You are responsible for distributing tickets to your guests before entering the aquatic park.
  7. Please have all of your party guests arrive within 15 minutes of your scheduled start time. For guests who will be arriving late, please provide a list to your host/hostess.
  8. You will have the reserved area for the assigned 2-hour time slot. The area may be reserved for another party immediately following your party. We ask that you please be understanding & leave the party area in a timely fashion as a courtesy to the next guests. You are welcome to stay at the aquatic park until it closes for the day.
  9. The party area will be decorated with balloons & a birthday sign. You are welcome to add your own decorations to the party area. We ask that you help to clean up any decorations that you do add. For decorating purposes, you may occupy the party area no more than 10 minutes prior to your scheduled start time.
  10. A birthday party host/hostess will be assigned to serve your food. The host/hostess is not responsible for the supervision of the birthday party members.
  11. The meals will be served approximately one half-hour after your scheduled start time. Please allow more time if a large number of your guests order the pizza meal.
  12. You are welcome to bring your own birthday cake. Your host/hostess will store it & serve it for you. No other carry-ins of food or beverage will be allowed.
  13. The birthday child will receive a group picture to remember the day. Each guest will receive a brightly colored, reusable plastic souvenir beach pail.
  14. You may open gifts or bring gift bags into the aquatic park, but Milwaukee County Parks is not responsible for the storage or security of your belongings.
  15. Birthday parties are held outdoors. A shaded area will be provided whenever possible but is not guaranteed.
  16. The aquatic park generally remains open if it is raining or if the temperature is cool. Severe weather conditions cause the aquatic park to close.
  17. If the aquatic park is closed for any reason during your scheduled time, you will have the option of rescheduling the party or receiving a full refund of your deposit.
  18. In accordance with the ADA, we welcome accommodation requests. To confirm the availability of services, please contact the Aquatics Office at 414-257-8098 at least 72 hours prior to your party.
