Splash Island Opens May 25

PLAINFIELD — Splash Island will have its grand opening for the outdoor summer season at 10 a.m. May 25.

 Operating hours for the Memorial Day weekend will be 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday, noon to 6 p.m. Sunday, and 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday.

The park will then be closed Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday of that week due to schools still being open.

Starting June 1, Splash Island will begin its daily operation Aug. 6. Every Wednesday the staff will offer a “Wet Wednesday” celebration with evening hours from 7 to 10 p.m. featuring surprise visits, specials on food items, and more.

“We are looking forward to hosting our summer guests again this year and hoping for another record-breaking season,” Clay Chafin, director of Parks & Recreation, said in a press release. “We are excited to introduce new guests to last year’s big hit, Leisure River, our 900-foot long ‘lazy river’ style ride. One thing that will be new this year is additional parking. We are adding a lot north of Splash Island that should hold about 75 cars. Hopefully that will alleviate some of the traffic congestion we experienced last year.”

Another new thing for 2013 is membership pricing for Guilford Township residents who are not within the town limits.

“Thanks to the Guilford Township Health Initiative agreement between the township and the town, memberships at reduced prices are available to Guilford Township residents,” Chafin added. “We hope that will encourage more local participation in all that we have to offer since memberships include the indoor amenities like the fitness center and Playworld. It’s not just the water park.”

Chafin said there will be promotional prizes to win like a “family reunion” prize package at Splash Island, courtesy of HANK-FM and the Plainfield Recreation and Aquatics Center. The contest runs June 3 through 16 on HANK-FM. Plus, Radio Disney visits every Tuesday with music, dancing, contests, and more. Listen to the stations for more information.

 “Also, Splash Island will have a new mobile website to keep you informed on the latest happenings,” he said. “And continue to visit our Facebook page, follow us on Twitter, and view us on YouTube for chances to win prizes all summer long.”
