Wild Waves is set to reopen June 18 after the pandemic forced it to close for the 2020 season. If you had a 2020 season pass, it has been converted to a season pass for this year. 

"I started my amusement industry career as a teenager, lifeguarding at a water park," said Wild Waves Theme & Water Park Park President, Jody Kneupper. "The experience and leadership skills I gained helped me succeed in college and eventually took me all over the country with an amazing opportunity to see new places and have fun at work. It’s a career I could have never imagined."
