Raging Waters Sydney reopens with COVIDSafe protocols

Raging Waters Sydney reopens with COVIDSafe protocols
October 10, 2020

Raging Waters Sydney has reopened for the 2020/21 with a comprehensive COVIDSafe plan in place to mitigate risks associated with the Coronavirus.

Reopening in advance of the Labour Day long weekend, General Manager, Tony Brancazio explains that the waterpark is a registered NSW COVID Safe Business fully committed to the health and safety of its guests and staff.

Advising that its COVIDSafe plan has been approved by NSW Health, and will be followed to best ensure the health and safety of everyone visiting or working at Raging Waters, Brancazio stated “safety is our number one priority, and we have worked hard during the off season to ensure we provide a fun and safe environment for our guests to enjoy.”

Key elements of Raging Waters Sydney’s new safety measures include:

• Limiting daily capacity in line with NSW Government restrictions 
• Pre-entry temperature checks for guests and staff 
• Social Distancing 
• Adding Sanitising Stations throughout the Park 
• Cashless Transactions 
• Enhancing Cleaning Measures 
• Educating Guests & Team Members 

To ensure capacity restrictions, all Guests will need to make a booking for the day they wish to visit, in addition to having a pre-purchased ticket or Season Pass.

The park will only sell tickets and Season Passes online.

While at the waterpark, guests will find signage reminding them of the importance of social distancing, utilising markers placed on the ground throughout the park, queue lines and entrance areas.

All guests and team members will also be required to have their temperature checked before entering, with any person exhibiting a temperature of 37.5 degrees Celsius or higher (or displaying other symptoms related to COVID-19) unable to enter.
