Water World won’t open in 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic

Those hoping to cool off at Water World in Federal Heights will have to wait till next summer.

The water park announced Tuesday that it will not be opening for the 2020 season due to the novel coronavirus pandemic.

“At this time and in direct consultation with public officials, there is no indication that an aquatic park of our size and scope, which operates with larger guest attendance, will be permitted to open within our short summer operating season,” Water World Director Bob Owens wrote in a letter on the company website. “With this information and guidance in hand, we’ve made the difficult decision to cancel our 2020 operating season. We are deeply disappointed, and this is not a decision that comes lightly. Ultimately though, we care about our community and we’ll do our part to get our great State of Colorado back on its feet.”

The water park had previously delayed its scheduled Memorial Day opening as it monitored the global outbreak.

All passes purchased for this summer have been extended to 2021, Owens wrote in the letter. The park directed anyone with questions to visit their Frequently Asked Questions page.

While businesses have slowly reopened across Colorado, high-capacity venues such as sporting arenas, concert halls and theme parks have not been given any indication that restrictions could be lifted in the near future.
