What to Pack

  1. Sunscreen - I love this because it doesn't leave behind the slimy feel that most sunscreens do!

  2. Regular Kid Googles - these fit our kids really well. Our youngest loves the shark ones!

  3. Flip Flops - the concrete is HOT! - You do have to take flip flops off for some rides, so you might want water shoes.

  4. Water Shoes - KEEN is a great brand! Also great for fishing in the streams of the Smokey Mountains!

  5. Pool Bag - I LOVE this bag!

  6. Waterproof cell phone holder - this way you have your phone when you want to capture a great moment & you don't have to pay for a locker to store it in. I don't know about you, but I always have anxiety leaving a cell phone in a bag that is unattended.
