Are day passes available for the use of CoCo Key Water Resort?

The water park is available to registered, overnight, water resort package guests at the CoCo Key Water Resort Hotel & Convention Center.   Day passes will be available to the general public on a capacity availability basis. Reserve your day passes early online! Note: Purchasing your tickets online is the only way to guarantee access into the Water Resort if you are not on a Water Resort package.

Do I need a wristband to gain entry into the park?

All guests entering the park must be wearing a wristband. Any guests inside the water resort without a wristband will be asked to visit the front desk of the water resort in order to purchase entry into the park.

How long are the wristbands valid?
Day pass guests: Daily color-coded wristbands issued at the water park front desk are valid during normal operating hours for the day of purchase. Please check the Hours of Operation Calendar.
Overnight package guests: Daily color-coded wristbands issued from the hotel front desk at check in are valid during normal operating hours during your stay. Please check with particular package information for exact timing.


What happens if a wristband needs to be adjusted or is lost?

Guests with a wristband in need of an adjustment must have the Front Desk remove and replace the wristband. Lost wristbands will be replaced with a full price fee.

What does "Subject to availability/Blackout dates may apply" mean on a coupon or a complimentary pass I have received?

Subject to availability pertains to the parks capacity limit. This means that we only allow a certain amount of guest into the Water Resort to ensure safety and guest satisfaction. If the park it full that day, the voucher cannot be used that day as the park met its capacity level and is full. 

Block-out dates can apply to certain holidays, vacations or special events going on in the park. During Block-out dates the voucher cannot be used at the Water Resort. You may be able to acquire regular tickets by purchasing them online in advance. 
***Please note- The Water Resort does sell out in advance. The only way to guarantee admission to the Water Resort on a particular day is to purchase a Water Resort Package at the hotel or Day Passes online in advanced.

Do I have to pay for my child if they are under 2 years of age?

All little swimmers under the age of 2 will gain free admittance into the park. Swimmers 2 and over must pay full price to receive a wristband. 

Are there any height restrictions for children riding the slides?

For the safety of all children, certain attractions do have height requirements even when accompanied by an adult. The tower slides in CoCo Key Water Resort have a height minimum of 42" to ride the body slide and 48" to ride the tube slides.  Parrot's Perch slides have a minimum height requirement of 40 inches.
