Hawaiian Falls The Colony Season Update

May 8, 2020


Dear Valued Hawaiian Falls Guests: 


First and foremost, I hope you, your family and friends are staying healthy and safe during this challenging time. Here at Hawaiian Falls The Colony, our entire team is working hard preparing for another summer of Fun! I wanted to take a moment to update you on the current status of our opening and our vision for the 2020 season.


Health and Safety

Safety has and will continue to be our #1 priority! As we continue to provide a Safe, Clean, Fun experience for all of our guests at Hawaiian Falls The Colony, I wanted to share a few extra safety measures we are incorporating into our daily routines.   

          • Frequent enhanced sanitation and cleaning during and after park hours.

          • Adequate social distancing measures at Front Gate, Sharkey's Cafe and other queuing areas throughout the park. 

          • Employees will be provided with masks and gloves to wear where appropriate and when in close contact with other employees and guests. 


We also strongly urge guests to pre-purchase one day admission tickets and season passes online.  Save Time, Stay Safe and Save Big! If you are unable to pre-purchase, we encourage guests to pay with credit/debit cards rather than cash when visiting the park.


As our opening date gets closer, we will have a complete list of safety policies available for you to view on our website.


We are closely monitoring guidelines from the CDC, state and local health departments and are planning to open Hawaiian Falls The Colony in late May. We are excited to welcome you and your family to the park this summer and look forward to helping you create new memories!


Thank You

Lastly, we would like to extend our sincerest gratitude to our guests for your continued support and patience as we navigate through these unprecedented times. 


We can’t wait to see you at Hawaiian Falls The Colony. We will continue to update you in the coming weeks as more information is available.



Here to Serve,


Chris Shillcutt

General Manager, Hawaiian Falls The Colony

Dear Valued Hawaiian Falls Guests:


We understand you may have questions about COVID-19. The health and safety of our Guests and Team Members is always our top priority and we have a plan in place to greatly enhance cleaning and disinfection protocols in preparing for when the park opens for the 2020 season.


At this time, we continue to plan towards the start of the Hawaiian Falls season on May 30, 2020.

 We will continue to monitor the situation, adhering to recommendations from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC), as well as our local and statewide health and safety agencies. The CDC has released their guidance on COVID-19 and water transmission stating: “There is no evidence that COVID-19 can be spread to humans through the use of pools and hot tubs. Proper operation, maintenance, and disinfection (e.g. with chlorine and bromine) of pools and hot tubs should remove or inactivate the virus that causes COVID-19.” Given the nature and fluidity of the situation, we appreciate your continued support and patience, and will keep you updated.


Our thoughts are with everyone directly impacted by this situation. To all our Guests, Team Members, Partners and Neighbors, we hope you are staying safe and we look forward to entertaining you at Hawaiian Falls The Colony this summer.




For the safety of all our guest and team members, we have increased all health and safety measures at Hawaiian Falls The Colony. You must follow all posted instructions and instructions given by our team members while visiting.


The CDC and local health departments advise that older adults and people of any age who have serious underlying medical conditions might be at higher risk for severe illness from COVID-19.  There is an inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 while in any public place where people are present.  By visiting Hawaiian Falls The Colony, you are voluntarily assuming all risks related to exposure to COVID-19.

What are your cleanliness and sanitization standards and procedures?

Safety has and will continue to be our #1 priority! In preparation for opening day and while closely monitoring the evolving situation, we have put in place plans to increase our sanitizing protocol and will continue to follow the guidance of state and local health agencies.

All guest and team member high-touch points including surfaces, railings, technology screens, handles and doors will be sanitized throughout the day as per regular policy. We are also adding additional hand sanitizer stations throughout the park. Signs will be installed to remind team members and guests of health and hygiene best practices.

Regarding water safety, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has released their guidance on COVID-19 and water transmission stating, in part, that “There is no evidence that COVID-19 can be spread to humans through the water. Proper operation, maintenance, and disinfection (with chlorine and bromine) of pools should kill COVID-19. Swimming and other water-related activities are excellent ways to get the physical activity needed for a healthy life. If you are not sick or experiencing symptoms of COVID-19, it is safe to use swimming pools."

In addition to the steps outline above, we will ask team members who are exhibiting cold or flu-like symptoms to stay home and contact their healthcare provider. The park will follow guidance from local and state officials, as well as the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and World Health Organization (WHO).
