Calypso Theme Waterpark

Calypso Theme Waterpark

The Calypso Theme Waterpark is located on a 100-acre site, about 20 minutes east of downtown Ottawa. With an investment of $50 million, the park has 35 state-of-the-art water slides, 100 water games, a river run, Canada’s largest wave pool, and fun rides that will keep you cool throughout the summer. There are restaurants, landscaped picnic areas, a souvenir shop, a VIP zone, dairy bar, terrace, bar, lounge chairs and two beach volleyball courts.
The water in all the pools is heated. The Calypso Theme Waterpark attractions remain open during rain, but may close temporarily in the event of a thunderstorm and reopen when it is safe to do so. The park will not issue refunds in the event of inclement weather.

TOP 12 TIPS FOR ENJOYING THE CALYPSO THEME WATERPARK

 

  1. Check online for the ride requirements before heading to the park, to make sure your entire group meets the requirements to slide–you can download the park map from their website to help plan your day.
  2. Buy tickets in advance to skip lineups at the entrance to the park
  3. CAA-Quebec members can get a 10% discount on regular admission fees if they purchase their tickets at CAA-Quebec Service Centres.
  4. The best days to visit the park are actually on overcast days–less lineups! However, in the case of a thunderstorm, the park may shut down rides temporarily, and then re-open when safe to do so. They do not offer refunds for inclement weather though.
  5. Take advantage of the rides during regular meal hours–again, less lineups!
  6. Wear comfortable and sensible swimwear. The park does not allow jeans or dresses on the rides. (No swimwear with buttons, snaps, rivets, or zippers are allowed.) Toddlers are required to wear waterproof diapers
  7. Wear a hat, use sunscreen, and drink lots of water (not pool water). Bring sunglasses, towels, and swimwear.
  8. They do not allow toys, flotation devices, or children wings in the park–they have items for rental if needed.
  9. Set up a designated meeting place because the park is HUGE
  10. Supervise small children at all times. They have certified lifeguards–but they are not babysitters!
  11. Picnic areas are available, but they do not allow glassware, sharp objects, alcohol, umbrellas, tents, portable radios or portable BBQs.

MONEY AT MY FINGERTIP

Help! How do I carry cash around when I’m wearing a bathing suit? The park owners thought of everything–including this unique way to pay for things at the park–without carrying around your wallet!

With this biometric payment method, you can upload money on your finger and use it at most sales points within the park. There are no user charges and the unused balance is fully refundable at the end of the day or at the end of the season.

You can have more than one user per account and you can verify your balance at any sales point at anytime. All sales transactions issue a receipt with balance. A minimum upload of $20 is required to use this. The technology recognizes 16 points on three skin layers. The fingerprints are not linked to a name, database or any other information and all transactions are secure and can be traced through the transaction history.

HISTORY

Construction began in 2008 and opened on June 7, 2010. Within a month of opening, it became one of the top ten new attractions in Canada. This June, saw the completion of their new 10-storey high Summit Tower complex–the highest free-standing waterslide tower in North America with new waterslides including AquaLoops (2.5 G loop), high speed waterslides for toboggan boats and double inner tubes, and family coiled slides with translucent and closed-off sections.
