100% of OpenAire US Indoor Waterparks are open!

All of OpenAire’s indoor waterparks around the USA are open. Only our indoor park in Canada remains closed as of  July 06, 2020

This is compared to about 66% of public and private indoor parks across the US who have re-opened so far. (per June 25, 2020 Hotel and Leisure Advisors Update)

U.S. Waterparks Updates June 25, 2020

The current COVID-19 crisis is having a significant negative effect on the waterpark industry. Many parks have delayed their season openings while others have decided, or been mandated, not to open in 2020 at all. With the largest database of waterparks and waterpark resorts across North America, H&LA is tracking the closings of waterparks across all segments. We began tracking the impact of COVID-19 on May 14th and will update this information a final time on July 9 as we track the most accurate data regarding the state of the industry in 2020. Our data is confirmed via online or property-level sources and is the latest data available as of the date of publication.

Indoor Waterparks:
We have researched or called every standalone indoor waterpark and indoor waterpark resort in the United States to determine their open status as of June 25, 2020. Some indoor waterpark resorts remain open for lodging, but their waterparks are closed. For our analysis, we considered these properties as closed.

Since our May 14th update, the number of open indoor waterparks has increased significantly.  Nearly two-thirds of this segment is currently open.
