Preparing for Opening Day

Evaluate Season Ticket Sales

If season ticket sales are a large part of your revenue stream. It is time to have a meeting with your season ticket sales manager to see where you are to goal. Depending on your current numbers, it might be time to consider a big marketing push to help you hit your sales goal before opening day.

Finish Park Maintenance 

As a seasoned waterslide company, we know that park maintenance is a big part of the off-season. Whether the maintenance was relatively minor and centered around a deep cleaning. And fresh coat of paint or you went through a total renovation, things should be starting to wrap up. Check-in with your contractor, cleaning crew, and painter to make sure they’re all still on track to be finished on deadline.

Begin On boarding Seasonal Employees

Your park’s employees are the most important asset your business has. Without them, everything you do for your guests would be impossible. To ensure a successful summer for everyone, you want to start the onboarding process a couple of months out. Doing so will allow you ample time for training and if any problems arise. You will have time to solve them before opening day.


Run Safety Tests

The Splashtacular waterslide company takes rider safety extremely seriously and it is important that your park does too. Before opening day you’ll need to test your rides, perform all necessary and routine maintenance, and conduct thorough safety training with all ride operators and lifeguards.

Finalize Your Grand Re-Opening Details

As a waterslide company, one of our favorite days of the year is the day that parks across the country reopen for the summer. The first day back is always filled with so many special events, games. Is so much fun for the whole family. No matter what you’re doing to make this year an opening day to remember, make sure your plans are finalized well in advance to ensure a smooth event.
