Hydro Adventures, Poplar Bluff, Missouri, will remain closed for the remainder of the 2020 season due to the devastating impact of the coronavirus epidemic. In light of the shortened operating season and social distancing guidelines created in response to the coronavirus, opening the waterpark for any portion of the 2020 season is not a financially viable option.
“We are deeply disappointed to have to make this difficult decision,” said Edgar Novoa, Hydro Adventures General Manager. “We love being a place for families to gather and make memories.”
This decision came after careful consideration by park management and after review of local and state public health guidelines. Hydro Adventures will be issuing refunds for all season passes and tickets previously purchased for the 2020 season. The park is undertaking a strategic review to determine its future. The options under consideration include the sale, redevelopment and repurposing of the park.
