The Waterpark in Carmel hosts a few nights in the summer where they clear the waterpark out, spiffy it up, and then re-open as a 21+ waterpark for a few hours. Monon Mixers are kid-free nights at The Waterpark that are great for a date night, a mom’s night out, and any other adults-only occasion you can think of.
For the 2023 season, there are five nights you can party at the Monon Mixer, the Monon Waterpark adult night. Grab your friends, your partner, or even your mom, and head to The Waterpark for a night of music, water slides, lazy river lounging, and beer or wine. Tickets are available online for $20 per person.
There are also some great adult-only nights at Freedom Springs Waterpark in Greenwood. The Greenwood waterpark is a lot of fun. You’ll want to check out all of the Indiana water parks and adult-only nights are a great way to do just that!
I have some tips for making the most of your night away from the kids;
Grab a Cabana
Arrive early to get in line. The gate opens at about 7:45 pm. At 8 pm, the ropes are let down and it’s a mad dash for the cabanas. On regular days, there’s a fee for cabana rentals but on Monon Mixer nights, it’s first come first serve for this hot hospitality spot. In the cabana, you’ll find a lounge chair and a few comfy, wicker-like chairs with cushions. Cabana guests have control over how loud the music from the PA is in their area and there’s a ceiling fan. The locker lets you store your belongings securely.
There are two smaller cabanas available in the back of the waterpark near the Flow Rider. These have a bar top table with chairs and are often forgotten about during the Monon Waterpark adult night! Run.
Bring Your Friends
Invite friends and make it a party. Maybe even set up a group babysitting arrangement so that you can save money and your kids will have fun too! Be sure to plan ahead and get your tickets NOW. Tickets are not available the night of the event and are often sold out even before the event begins.
During the Monon Mixer event, everyone can enjoy all the water attractions that the park has to offer, including water slides, adventure slides, a lazy river, and a wave pool. BUT THERE ARE NO CHILDREN IN THE WHOLE PARK!
Food and Drink at the Monon Mixer
The concession stand is open during the Monon Mixer and they serve up a good hamburger, bratwurst, walking tacos, and more. You can also have ice cream!
I was thinking a nice charcuterie board would go really well along with the wine available for purchase at the Monon Waterpark adult night. And I should have brought one because it’s okay to bring food and beverages into the waterpark when you visit. You may not bring glass or alcohol. Beer and wine from local breweries and wineries are available for purchase at the event. If you choose not to drink, you will receive a wristband that indicates this and you can have free sodas from the concession stand.
Don’t Forget These Things
Don’t forget your bathing suit, towel and of course your ID. You will need to show your ID to the police officer at the gate before you can enter this 21+ event.
Don’t miss the best pool party of the summer! Join us at The Waterpark after hours for the adults-only Monon Mixer. Get your friends together for a night of fun lounging on the lazy river, surfing the FlowRider, munching on snacks from the food trucks, and enjoying some adult beverages poolside!
Pre-registration is required. Click here to reserve your spot! It’s very important to say again, pre-registration is required and tickets are limited. 21 years old and over only. Adult beverages will be available for purchase at the Monon Waterpark adult night. Please enjoy responsibly.
You really may want to consider having someone be a designated driver, or make use of a rideshare service like Uber or Lyft. Please, please drink responsibly and enjoy the whole evening, make only good memories.
