I just got off the phone with a local water park, that just opened this year. I thought it would be fun to go there as a family before summer came to an end. I called to find out about wheelchair accessibility.
Here are the questions I asked and the responses...
Is there an entrance that can be used for wheelchairs?
Well, you will have to get someone to let you in at the different entrance. We are busy and it might take some one awhile to help you.
Can we arrive a few minutes early so that someone can help us?
So, you are asking us to make an exception? Well, I don't think so. If you really have to, you can try but we will not guarantee that.
Is there an easy place to park a wheel chair once inside?
The water park is more of a place to play, so there are children everywhere. This might not be a place for you to bring your child.
Yes, I am frustrated by the responses. Especially the last one. They do not have any idea about my son other than a wheelchair (not his age or development). We take Brayden to other pools with not much of a problem other than jockeying for an umbrella.
My hope is that the person I was talking to did not know much and I am trying to give her the benefit of doubt. I might try to swing by there and talk to someone in person (or complain).
