Tips and Tricks For A Great Night
Frequently Asked Questions
- What is the ticket situation? There was some confusion on how to get a ticket last year.
- We totally agree! You live and you learn and we appreciate you sticking with us! This year tickets are easy to get. They are $5 each and can be purchased online today or at the Riverdeck starting June 14th. Tickets will also be sold at the door on the day of the event.
- Can I bring my kids?
- Yes! Bring the family, but you're in charge of them! This is a an all-age event. Please be aware that all children 16 and under must be accompanied by an adult at all times. In addition, you must be 21+ to enter the water. IDs will be checked at the door.
- How does the water situation work? Do I need a special ticket?
- Nope! We are just selling General Admission tickets this year. Please be advised that safety is our number one policy so water space will be limited. Water space will be on a first come, first serve basis on the day of the event.
- What kind of tube should I plan to bring?
- Only one-person tubes will be permitted in the water this year. Novelty tubes, kayaks, canoes and multi-person tubes/rafts are prohibited.We love those gigantic duck and swan tubes, BUT last year many people had trouble seeing over these types of tubes and it also limited our lifeguard's view of the water. Safety first!
- Will you have an air compressor on site for me to blow up my tube with?
- Yes, we will have an air compressor station where you can blow up your tube. If you are able to blow your tube up at home, please do so. This will help us cut down on lines.
- Can I bring a lawn chair to watch the movie from?
- If you plan to watch from land, we will have plenty of seating available. Lawn chairs are prohibited.
- Can I bring my own cooler full of snacks and drinks for the movie? I sneak in snacks at the theater!
- No need! We'll have plenty of foods and drinks available at The Riverdeck. Our bar will be fully stocked and ready for your business. We also will have a sick Deep Eddy's Vodka trailer on site for some extra pizzazz! While we will have a limited menu for the night (as opposed to the Riverdeck's full menu,) there will still be plenty of great options. Hot dogs, burgers, nachos, popcorn, etc. Outside food and personal coolers are prohibited. Any confiscated liquor will be graciously put aside for our end of the summer staff party!
- Is this rain or shine?
- You bet! A little rain won't stop our party; however, if the weather becomes dangerous, we may have to make a change in plans. No refunds will be given.
