Citing the most recent public health orders by the State of California and the County of San Diego addressing public gatherings during the current COVID-19 pandemic, the City of Vista’s Wave Waterpark 2020 season is pausing operations indefinitely. When it is safe to gather again, we will be ready to welcome you back and be privileged to serve you, our community. More information is available on our COVID-19 page.

  • Water Safety Program: A fun way for the group to learn about water safety, lifejacket use, currents, staying warm, and how to help others.
  • First Aid Program: A basic instruction to first aid treatment both on deck and in the water. Fun scenarios and acting help add to the learning process.
  • Water Fun Program: Explore the fun aspects of what water has to offer from games to fun in the rapid moving currents while spotlighting safety.

Important Information:

No outside food, drinks, coolers, or cakes are permitted inside the park. We are unable to store items for you. There is a grassy area outside the park if you wish to picnic.

On the day of your event the contact person will be given all of the admission tickets for the group. We are unable to hold tickets for late arriving group members so please plan to coordinate with late arriving group members.

Please let us know if there is anything we can do to make your event more memorable or special!
