Sliders will be available for infants only. One (1) hot BBQ item per wristband. Salads, grilled vegetables, watermelon, and cold beverages will also be available. There will be vegan and vegetarian options provided.
Please do not start the ticket reservation survey until you know exactly how many tickets you will be purchasing as well as what your food choices will be.
Once tickets are reserved, they are non-refundable. Please DO NOT reserve tickets if you are unsure about attending as you will be expected to pay for the tickets regardless.
Special Draw – Cabanas
Once again, we will be holding a draw for the use of a private cabana on the day of the picnic. The cabanas include two lounge chairs, 4 chairs and a round table, 1 all day locker rental, 2 tube rentals, complimentary newspaper and wait service.
If you pay for your tickets by 12:00 noon on Thursday June 22nd, your name will be entered into the draw for one of three cabanas we have reserved. Winners of the cabanas will be announced the first week of July.
DEADLINE FOR PURCHASE AND PAYMENT TO BE ELIGIBLE FOR THE SPECIAL DRAW IS: 12:00 NOON, THURSDAY JUNE 22nd.
As it can take a day to process the RSVP, it is suggested that you submit your ticket registration by end of day Wednesday June 21.
We will be accepting e-transfers for payment as our preferred method of payment.
Once your picnic ticket reservation is confirmed, you will receive an email with details on how to process your payment by way of e-transfer.
When your payment has been received and processed, a Picnic ticket confirmation email will be sent to you. This will be your picnic ticket to print off or show us on your phone on the day of the event.
If you are unable to pay for tickets through e-transfer, you will have the option of paying in cash at our Unifor Local 5555 Administration office
Reminders / Notes
Lifejackets / PFDs
The Ontario Ministry of Health introduced new legislation in 2018 regarding public pool regulations. This regulation affects Wild Waterworks and is about the mandatory use of life-jacket – PFD’s. ALL children 10 and under MUST wear a life-jacket in both the Wave Pool and Easy River. Wild Waterworks have life-jackets available on a first come first serve basis free of charge. We have been advised that Wild Waterworks has approx. 750 life-jackets in various children’s sizes for use.
If your children have their own life jackets (approved by Transport Canada, Oceans & Fisheries Canada, Canadian Coast Guard or USA Coast Guard Type 1, 2 or 3) please feel free to bring them with you.
Supervision of Children
Also, please be aware that supervision of those 10 years of age and under a guardian or designated person 16 years of age or older must be within Arm’s Reach at all times while in the water.
The following ratios must be adhered to:
- Children under age 6: Two children with a life jacket to one guardian (2:1) 16 years of age or older
- Children aged 6-10: Eight children with a life jacket to one guardian (8:1) 16 years of age or older.
Please be sure to visit the Wild Waterworks website to familiarize yourself with their rules and limitations, including their swimwear policy, Accessibility Guide, as well as what is permitted inside the park.
In past years, some of our members had to remove certain items from their coolers before being allowed to enter the park (ex. Glass containers, sharp utensils, etc.) Please take the time to read their rules and regulations to make your day as pleasant as possible.
Some quick links to their FAQs, rules, and life jacket requirements are below, but they have many other rules and instructions on their website.
Looking forward to a great day!
