What should I bring to a water park?

When visiting a water park in Mississippi, your bathing suit is an obvious must-have, but it’s not the only thing you’ll need. Other items you’ll want to bring along include a towel, waterproof sunscreen, flip flops or water shoes, sunglasses, and goggles, which are great for use in wave pools. Bringing water and/or snacks is also a good idea; however, don’t forget to check the park’s rules regarding outside food and drink prior to your visit.
