Want to get in on the water park fun before summer ends? Here are four things you need to know.

Make a reservation in advance. Both companies request that you book online and arrive early on the day of your reservation to register, sign waivers and attend orientation.

Water shoes are recommended. The obstacle courses can get quite hot on those 100-degree days. Water shoes will protect your feet and give you better traction along the course.

You can buy alcohol there. Both parks have on-site bars where you can purchase a variety of beverages. Food is available, too.

Leave your little ones at home. Children must be 7 years old and at least 45 inches tall to participate. Life jackets are provided and required.
