Busy holiday at Crystal Beach Park


Woodward, Okla. — WATER FUN

The Crystal Beach Waterpark will open for the summer at noon this Saturday.

"From that point forward we'll be open 7 days a week, including holidays," said Trenton Sunderland, general manager of the waterpark.

The park hours will be noon to 7 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays, noon to 8 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays, and 1 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Sundays.

Sunderland said that entry fees for the park "will be the same as they have in the past."  That includes the lower spectator fee that was instituted last summer for those adults "who want to come in and watch their children and not swim," he said.

"We figure that the more adults and parents we have watching kids, the safer it will be for everybody," he said.

That's why the waterpark also has a policy that "no child can come in without an adult to supervise them," Sunderland said.

He explained that the age cutoff is 12-years-old, with those 12 and under considered children and those 13 and older considered adults.

"It's really for the safety of the kids and well-being of everyone else there," he said.

In addition to the regular daily entry fees, Sunderland said the waterpark also now offers all season passes, including individual passes for children or adults as well as a 4-person family pass, with option for larger families to add additional passes at a reduced rate.

These passes can be purchased at the water park front desk, he said.

"In the years past, we had punch cards.  We'll honor past year's cards, but we're not going to issue any more punch cards because we have switched to the season passes," he said.
