Elitch Gardens Receives Platinum International Aquatic Safety Award 

That’s another win for the Elitch Gardens Water Park team. The park received the Platinum International Aquatic Safety Award for the 2018 Season by Ellis & Associates. This puts Elitch Gardens in the top 10% of the Aquatic and Risk Management Consultant’s 650 clients worldwide! 

Elitch Gardens was audited by Ellis & Associates multiple times throughout the 2018 season and received 100% scores on all the evaluations. The Platinum International Safety Award is for achieving the highest quality of lifeguard professionalism and operational standards through the participation in the E&A Comprehensive Aquatic Risk Management Program.

Count ‘em up – The park has received this prestigious award seventeen times since Island Kingdom Water Park opened.

“Safety is our top priority here at Elitch Gardens and we train, manage and drill our team to exceed the standards set by Ellis & Associates,” says Lori Kaupp, Elitch Gardens’ Director of Operations. “We are proud and honored to have received this award yet again.”  

Elitch Gardens hires over 150 lifeguards each season that provide a high level of care to our guests from May to September. Want to be part of this awesome team? We hire in the Spring and you can apply online at ElitchGardens.com/Jobs!

Congrats to our Water Park team for being awarded this impressive award and if you are enjoying your visit to Elitch Gardens’ Island Kingdom Water Park next summer, don’t be afraid to say a quick thanks to those lifeguards for keeping us safe!
