Alternatively, you can rent a lifejacket from us for a fee of $6 per day.
  • What is your policy regarding inclement weather?
    We do our best to remain open through minor weather, but if weather becomes hazardous to the safety of our staff and guests we will close. The decision to close is not made lightly and will be posted on our social media immediately to alert any guests planning to come. Lightning and Thunder: If lightning strikes within 3 miles, we will ask everyone to leave the water for 30 minutes. During this time, the Bar & Grill will remain open and guests can still play games on the sand. After 30 minutes passes with no lightning, guests are invited to re-enter the water. Severe Weather - such as hail, tornadoes, etc. If weather becomes a safety hazard, we will ask all of our guests to leave and seek shelter immediately. We do not have any place on site that is protective against a tornado. Guests may take cover under the bar and grill or their rental areas to potentially avoid hail, but there is not very much room so we will monitor if hail is suspected and communicate with guests early about inclement weather.
  • What should I do if I lose something at the waterpark?
    If you lose an item while at the park, please inform our staff immediately. However, please do not distract the lifeguards as they are responsible for ensuring the safety of all our guests. Our team will do their best to help you locate your missing item within the day. If you only realize you lost something after you leave, you can fill out our online lost and found form. When filling out the form, be as specific as possible, including the possible location of where you think you lost the item (e.g., black watch with a gold clasp by the rock wall facing the slide). Please note that items lost in the water are considered lost forever, as we do not allow guests to dive for them, nor do we dive for lost items ourselves. Therefore, we advise you not to bring valuables like keys, expensive glasses or jewelry into the water with you. If we locate your lost item, we will contact you and arrange for it to be shipped to you at your expense via UPS.
  • Can I bring my pet to the waterpark?
    Unfortunately, pets and emotional support animals are not allowed on the waterpark grounds at any time. However, service animals are protected under federal law and are permitted entry into the park. If you need to board your pet or emotional support animal for the day, there are nearby businesses in Rolla, Missouri that provide such services. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and appreciate your understanding.
  • Are there fish in the water at the waterpark?
    Due to being an open air environment, we cannot fully guarantee that there will be no fish or wildlife. We do our best to remove and prevent any unwanted wildlife in the area and have not had any recent complaints or incidents related to wildlife. To our knowledge there are no fish in the water.
  • Why can't certain items be brought into the waterpark?
    For safety reasons, glass and grills are not permitted inside the waterpark. Glass containers pose a risk of breaking, which could cause harm to our guests and be difficult to clean up. To bring in items such as pickles and salsa, we request that you transfer them to a different container. Grills are not allowed due to safety concerns related to hot coals or gas. We have stationary charcoal grills available for our guests who have reserved a cabana, picnic table, or pavilion. Please reserve ahead of time to ensure availability. Alcohol cannot be brought into the park as we have a liquor license for our Fugitive Beach Bar & Grill, and it is against Missouri liquor laws to bring in outside alcohol. Guests can purchase alcohol with a valid ID at the bar and grill. Finally, speakers are not allowed inside the waterpark as they can interfere with our sound system, which is also used for emergency announcements when necessary. These guidelines are in place for the safety and enjoyment of all our guests.
  • Is Fugitive Beach non-smoking park?
    Fugitive Beach has designated smoking areas within the park please only smoke within those areas to respect those that are non smokers. Please ask a staff member to point out the smoking areas if you can't see them.
