Waterslide Height Requirements

"How tall to I have to be to ride the slide?!?"

We receive a lot of questions about our waterslides and height requirements for sliding. Here are your answers!

  • You must be 48" tall (4 feet) in order to ride the slides. 
  • Anyone under 48" tall cannot ride the slides, even with an adult, and even if they are good swimmers. 
  • The slides are fun for everyone! But if a person is too short, they may end up getting twisted around (maybe even head first) which is a danger to safety.  
  • The slide manufacturer recommends a person be 48" tall in order to ride, and the City of Spearfish requires us to follow this recommendation. 
  • All slide riders must ride facing forward, feet first. 

*Children under the age of 9 must be accompanied by an adult in the Rec Center & Water Park. 

 These requirements are in place for safety. Please help us enforce these safety measures with your children!  Thank you!

 

Water Park Inclement Weather Policy

Inclement Weather Policy

NO CASH REFUNDS WILL BE OFFERED
In the event of inclement weather, which may include thunder, lightning, heavy rain, any kind of serious storm or unsafe situation that limits lifeguard visibility or patron safety, the aquatic areas of the park will be cleared including all pool decks.  Patrons will be directed inside the building until the deck is safe, the storm passes, or SRAC staff chooses to close for the day. Please call the park before visiting in the event of inclement weather. We will update the website (spearfishreccenter.com) in the event that the park closes due to weather.
If inclement weather persists after 30 minutes, pool reopening will be reassessed at regular pool breaks (1:30 pm, 3:00 pm, 5:00 pm).

  • A 1:1 ration is required for all other pool areas
  • For children age 4-8 years old, a 1:5 adult to child ratio is required
  • No more than two children (age 4-8 years old) or one child (age 3 & under) may be supervised by a teen (age 14-17 years old). 
  • Children age 9 and up may be in the water park without adult supervision. 

Snack Shack Concessions

SRAC's New Concessions Menu full of Healthy & Informed Choices!

Outside food and drink is NOT allowed in the Water Park. SRAC is making an effort to move towards healthier concessions choices.  This effort is twofold.

  • We want to offer more healthy choices from our concessions stand.
  • We want to help you make the best educated choices about which foods to choose.

This year we have implemented the Healthy South Dakota Munch Codes into our menu. The menu is now color coded with the Munch Codes guides to help you make informed choices. We hope you enjoy our all new menu!
