When Thunder Roars, Move Indoors!

We want you and your family safe during thunderstorms!
Due to its random and unpredictable nature, preparedness and quick responses are the best defenses towards the lightning hazard. Swimming pools are connected to a much larger surface area via underground water pipes, gas lines, electric and telephone wiring, etc. Lightning strikes to the ground anywhere on this metallic network may induce shocks elsewhere. And where there's thunder, there is lightning!


Aquatics staff must have a 30 minute continuous all clear before operations can resume.  Please keep an eye out for signage posted by Guest Services for any ongoing weather advisories.
