VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) -

Splash Island water park is opening for the season at Wild Adventures Theme park in Valdosta and park officials are reminding people about pool safety.
 
Officials say visitors who can't swim well should always wear a life jacket and stay close to a lifeguard in case they need help.

And they want everyone to follow the rules.
 
"When you come out to have a good time, we wanna make sure that you're keepin' three things in mind," said Lisa Ingram, Aquatics Operations Coordinator at Wild Adventures. 

"We wanna make sure that you stay hydrated, you wanna wear your sunscreen, and you want to make sure when you come to play in the water that there's no horseplay or anything of that nature that you could possibly hurt yourself," continued Ingram.
 
Gates open at 11 a.m. Saturday.
