BATON ROUGE, La. (NOLA WEEKEND) -One of the area’s largest water attractions will reopen this week for the 2022 summer season after previous delays due to staffing shortages.
Blue Bayou Water Park and Dixie Landin’ Theme Park will reopen on Wednesday, June 15. The Baton Rouge-area attractions, which usually open by Memorial Day weekend, announced delayed reopening dates via Facebook.
The water park and amusement park will open daily from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. through Aug. 7. After that, the parks will only open on Saturdays and Sundays until Labor Day.
According to the online announcement, “limited attractions will be available.” Admission may be purchased at the gate only, the post said.
Last year, the park was only partially open, until impacts from Hurricane Ida forced Blue Bayou to close early for the season on Aug. 31.
The park was closed in 2020 due to COVID-related restrictions.
Blue Bayou Water Park and Dixie Landin’ is located off Highland Road at Interstate 10 in Baton Rouge.
