Cococay Spashaway Bay Slides Height Restriction

Recommended Posts

On the website, it states that the slides at Splashaway Bay on Cococay are a MAXIMUM of 42".

The Splashaway Bay slides on the ships are a MINIMUM of 42".

 

Knowing how often the website has mistakes, can anyone who has been to Perfect Day at Cococay confirm what the restrictions are for the Spashaway Bay slides?

 Not sure, but I did read on the Royal Caribbean blog that adults are able to go on the slides  at Splashaway  bay on CocoCay

I can't imagine that the maximum height is 42" and max weight is 200 pounds. That would be a very well rounded person.

This provides some hope. Thanks!

 

Yes, I saw the above where it says Max 42”  with 200lb max weight, which is why I was hoping to see if anyone knew for sure.

 

When I reached out to RCI via FB messenger, I was told it was maximum 42”, but it seemed they were just reading off the above chart...and we all know how accurate their online info can be...

Seems very counter intuitive to have slides on the ship that a kid under 42" cannot use, but then have similar slides on Coco Cay where seemingly any height 'up to' 42" can slide.

 

I have tall kids for their age, so my almost 4 year old may actually still make the cut, but it is mind boggling that something like this is such a big deal. I remember cruising when there weren't even any lifeguards on the entire ship, now they are going overkill by denying kids the experience of their little dinky waterslides. Pretty wonky.

 Here’s what Matt from Royal Caribbean blog posted so he said he asked the lifeguard and they told him adults can go on the slides so maybe they changed it?

Isnt splashaway for the little kids? You would think it is a maximum then.

 

Can you imagine a kid that is 42" and about 200 pounds? I definitely can't. It has to be a typo.

They probably go overkill to protect themselves from lawsuits. To many people blaming others and not taking responsibility for themselves.

 Nice! I’m going to hope this is accurate and doesn’t change!
