Bingemans Big Splash | Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently Asked Questions & Answers

What happened to the slides that used to be in the Big Splash waterpark?

Big Splash is now Bigger and Splashier with the addition of 5 Huge New Waterslides! (Boomerango and Full Throttle). In order to make room for the new slides, some of the older slides were removed. Bingemans is always improving the park in order to serve you better.

Admissions used to be sold based on age (Adult, Child, Toddler, Senior) and now it’s based on height. Why did it change?

With the addition of Boomerango and Full Throttle, all of our Waterslides now have a minimum height requirement of 48”. As a result, admissions are now based on height instead of age to accommodate our customers.

Are there any restrictions for the various activities?

Yes, the following activities have restrictions:

  • Waterslides (The Pipe Slides, Torpedo Bay, Boomerango, and Full Throttle) – Minimum height of 48” tall, and must be a strong swimmer. No double sliding, no water wings, and no lifejackets.
  • Cyclone – Minimum height of 48” tall, and must be a strong swimmer. No double sliding, no water wings, and no lifejackets.
  • FunworX 3-level Playstructure – For children 12 and under. Socks must be worn in the Playstructure at all times.
  • Rocks & Ropes Course – Climbers must be at least 45lbs and at least 6 years of age.

Torpedo Bay and Full Throttle are designed with run outs, meaning that riders do not enter a pool at any time.

The Cyclone free-falls into a landing pool and is therefore not recommended for novice swimmers.

Can we use any part of your park for our own picnic/bbq?

Yes, guests may use picnic tables located outside of the park near FunworX for picnic lunches (no BBQs). All picnic shelters in the park are reserved for pre-booked group events through our sales office. Bingemans is a privately owned park and anyone attempting to use these areas of the park for their own unauthorized event will be asked to leave the park, or pay a rental fee.

Therefore, coolers with food and beverages are permitted; there are no fees or size restrictions for the coolers.

We do ask that glass containers, sharp knives, alcohol, and prepared foods, such as boxes of pizzas and fast food, not be brought into the park and remind our guests that all bags and coolers are checked at the waterpark entrance.

Coolers are not allowed inside the FunworX building.

Yes, it is located inside the FunworX building. All of Bingemans’ Lifeguards and Management are certified and trained on how to use the AED system.
