That's great news for all the summer revelers. Splash Kingdom Waterpark made the official announcement on their Facebook page Tuesday, May 26.

To say that Splash Kingdom Waterpark is excited to open is an understatement.

Obviously, with the current pandemic, all kinds of precautions will need to be taken to ensure a safe experience. Splash Kingdom Waterpark posted a full message on their Facebook page laying what needs, and will be done, as they get ready to open.

In their statement, they state that, according to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), COVID-19 can not live in properly maintained swimming pools or hot tubs. They are also working with the CDC, amusement and waterpark associations and other groups to make sure they are opening safely. There will also be measures in place to ensure proper social distancing in their seating areas and around their food stations.

Get excited friends as you can cool off starting this weekend at Splash Kingdom Waterpark in Canton.
