Waterpark Frequently Asked Questions
How do we find Cherry Hill?
Cherry Hill is located off Highway 89 at Exit 397 in Fruit Heights, Utah. The Park is approximately 19 miles north of Salt Lake and approximately 19 miles south of Ogden. Click Here for driving directions.
What forms of Payment do you accept?
Cherry Hill accepts cash, Visa, Mastercard, American Express and Discover cards at the park as well as online purchases. Checks are only accepted for group camping deposits.
Can we bring our own tent, canopy, or umbrellas into the Waterpark?
We no longer allow canopy’s or tents into the Waterpark due to safety reasons. We do however allow umbrellas and sportbrella’s to be brought in as long as they are secured to your lounger or chair.
Can we bring our own food and drink into the Waterpark?
Food, beverages and coolers are all welcome inside the park. Alcoholic beverages are not permitted anywhere on public grounds. All coolers will be inspected before entering the park.
What is Cherry Hill’s lifejacket and floatation policy?
You can bring in your own lifejackets and personal floatation devices. All floatation devices must only occupy your personal space.
We STRONGLY recommend that parents keep their children within arms reach during all water activities. We strongly recommend all guests under 48″ or who are weak or non swimmers wear lifejackets where appropriate. Lifejackets are available in our Gift Shop.
Are swim diapers and swim diaper covers required? At what age for Cherry Hill guests?
At Cherry Hill Waterpark we require ALL Children under age 4 to wear BOTH a Swim Diaper and Swim Diaper cover. (Yes, even Potty Trained children)
Cherry Hill started enforcing this rule in 2013 part way through the summer and saw pool accidents go from an average of 12 each week down to 2 or 3 each week. Meaning we only had to close our pools, slides, lazy river etc. a couple times a week due to fecal accidents. Less accidents happening and the positive feedback confirmed the policy was a success. We apologize that this rule requires extra effort and planning for some of our guests, but we do appreciate your understanding. We are not trying to offend or turn people away with this policy.
Accidents happen. We cannot stop all fecal accidents… but with your help Cherry Hill can keep its pools open longer and provide a safer much cleaner environment for all guests.
The CDC, the local health department, and many other waterparks only recommend that children under age 3 follow this rule. Again At Cherry Hill we require that under Age 4 follow this rule or you will not be permitted to enter the facility. Thank you for your understanding.
What type of training do Cherry Hill Lifeguards receive?
To ensure guest safety and satisfaction Cherry Hill Waterpark requires that all Lifeguards are Red Cross Certified. Staff also undergoes daily testing throughout the season and In-Service drills where additional training takes place. If you have any questions feel free to contact a park manager.
Can I leave the Waterpark and get back in?
Yes, each waterpark guest receives a Splash Pass or King of the Hill wristband that is good for that day only. As long as you keep your wristband attached you may leave and return during our daily operating hours.
Do I still have to pay if I don’t get in the water?
Cherry Hill offers spectator areas outside of the physical waterpark. The Double Dragons has bleacher seating for viewing the slides. Grants Gulch allows you to walk into the common area for viewing of the north side of the river. All other areas we allow viewing from perimeter fencing.
No spectator pass is available at this time due to patrons walking in with street clothes and changing into their swimsuits once in the park. We are sorry for the inconvenience.
What can we wear on the water slides?
Swimwear is required on all water attractions. Cut off jeans, regular shorts, and pants are prohibited due to metal and fabric that could damage the the attractions. However we allow t-shirts to be worn over swimwear.
Modest Swimwear is also a requirement at Cherry Hill due to the high Volume of families that attend with small children.
At what age can a child be unaccompanied by an adult?
We suggest that any child under the age of 18 not be dropped off or unaccompanied.
We REQUIRE that children 12 & under must be accompanied by a guardian. A guardian in this facility is a person of sufficient age, maturity, judgement, and ability to be responsible for the well being and safety of a child.
How much does it cost to rent a locker?
Final cost on lockers is only $5.00 per day. Lockers are $10.00 a day (including a $5.00 RFID Wristband deposit). When you return your wristband to the ticket office your $5.00 deposit will be refunded back to you. Return your wristband at the end of the day so that you have unlimited access to your belongings. The majority of lockers are located around Grant’s Gulch and the Gift Shop. All locker wristbands will all be deactivated at 8:30pm and reset for the next day. Please get your belongings out of the lockers by 8:00pm. Larger family lockers are also available.
What if there is bad weather on the day of my visit?
There are no refunds due to bad weather. If the waterpark attractions close due to bad weather please ask if they will be closed the remainder of the day (sometimes it can take up to 1 hour to determine this). If they do close and you purchased tickets within 30 minutes before closing we will issue a raincheck for a return visit. You must keep your RECEIPT and show it in order to be issued a raincheck. Receipt must show your purchase within 30 minutes of Cherry Hill closing. If Cherry Hill re-opens that day or plans to reopen there will be no rainchecks issued.
Can I wear water shoes or sandals on the attractions?
You can wear water shoes to walk around the park but for your safety you are required to remove them when you go on the attractions. Water shoes or sandals can catch on the slide on your way down, causing possible injury.
Is there a tube or water slide mat rental fee?
All tubes and mats required for the water slides and lazy river are free of charge. Please exchange tubes and mats with other patrons with courteous consideration for one another.
Is there a fee to park?
All Cherry Hill parking is free of charge.
Can I bring my pets into the waterpark?
No, we are sorry for this. Due to sanitary levels around water attractions no pets or even blind seeing eye dogs will be permitted into the park.
