WELCOME TO TIDAL WAVE PARTY 14
JOCKS, JERSEYS & BEARS!

The dates have been set, the hotel contracts have been signed, the DJ’s and talents picked, and we are ready to make this year’s event the best one yet! With over 1500 diverse registrants for Tidal Wave 13, we are poised to surpass last years attendance and have the largest, inclusive event to date. Based on your survey responses we have made the following changes for the new Tidal Wave 3.0!

We are pleased to announce that The B Resort and Spa is the new home for Tidal Wave! The resort houses 394 rooms, a 5,000 SF outdoor courtyard with a pool table, ping pong, cornhole, lawn, chess/checkers, connect four and giant Jenga. The courtyard will be converted each night of the event to a dance area with lighting and incredible sound. The 300+ seat restaurant/bar and the updated rooms will all round out your Tidal Wave experience. (Please note that the host hotel, The B Resort and Spa, will require a 4 night minimum stay).

The 229 room Double Tree Hotel (right next door) has been chosen to accommodate those Tidal Wave guests who would like a quieter sleeping environment. As the official overflow hotel, the Double Tree requires a 3-night minimum stay. All rooms at the Double Tree are suites.

We are excited to bring back Riptide @Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon Waterpark as part of the Friday night line-up. This year we are adding more buses for faster service and a Bear/Cub guide at the entrance of the park to guide you to the Bear Lagoon.

Bearaoke was a hit with Tidal Wave 13 and we will be adding more nights to round out your fun activities. Noble Williams from Castle Entertainment
runs karaoke nights in OH and will be your host for this event.

Dirty Bingo will be a one-day event this year! 7 games with incredible cash and prizes to be won with your host, Derek Combs.

Music Box (Mubo) is a new app that allows our guests to pick out their favorite songs to party to around the pool during the 11am-2pm & 7pm-9pm
hours

Live, Work, Pose! – Our first annual Tidal Wave Ball from 2pm-3pm with our hostess, KayKay Lavelle and host, Derek Combs. Categories are: DILF Bod,
Vacation in a Caftan, Wet Underwear & Sports Gear. Bring your best game and snatch those trophies!

This year we are offering a Tidal Wave 101/First timers seminar on all things TW.

Vendor space has tripled! With 21,000 SF of vending space, we are adding more options including a barber, adult novelties, CPAP supplies, Tshirts, clothing and more.

A cabaret showcase with Delighted Tobehere is returning to Tidal Wave. Delighted Tobehere was named as one of the funniest drag queens in America by the Huffington Post, and the internationally celebrated comedian Pam Ann says that she is “hysterical!”. Our hostess, KayKay Lavelle, will be kicking of the fabulous night of fun!

We are all looking forward to another incredible event and can’t wait to see you all in 2020!!!

TIDAL WAVE FAQ

Will Tidal Wave 14 take place in 2020?2020-03-28T10:45:54-04:00

No. Due to the global coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, the event is being postponed to June 3-7, 2021.

If a vaccine is developed and everything goes back to normal in April or May 2020, will Tidal Wave still happen in 2020?2020-03-28T10:47:06-04:00

No. The uncertainty of this pandemic, along with the financial concerns related to it, we feel postponing Tidal Wave to 2021 is in the best interest of all. As a result, we needed to make this decision now (March 2020) to give people plenty of time to change their plans.

Can I wait to decide until after March 31 whether I want to cancel my ticket/hotel reservation or roll my plans forward to 2021?2020-03-28T12:58:16-04:00

You can, however, you will be charged the 4.95% processing fee for your Tidal Wave ticket. The hotel will be taking the first round of new deposits on March 1, 2021 (failing to cancel before this time, you will incur the first line of deposits). We apologize for the short notice on making this decision. We need to hear from everyone by March 31, 2020 due to the contracts we have with the hotel and the Tidal Wave ticketing company.

I plan to come to the postponed event June 3-7, 2021. What do I need to do?2020-03-28T12:58:12-04:00
  • On or before, March 31, 2020, just send us an email at info@tidalwaveparty.com.
  • In the subject line, put “Count me in for 2021!”.
  • In the email, please include your name, email address, phone number, your Confirmation number for your Tidal Wave ticket, and your hotel name and confirmation number for your hotel reservation.

We will hold your ticket payment and the B Hotel will issue a refund for your current room deposit within 60 days. The first night deposit for 2021 will be due March 1, 2021. The second night deposit will be due May 1, 2021. You will get the same ticket(s) and room reservation at the B Hotel that was confirmed for 2020. Your ticket price(s) and room rate will be exactly the same as in 2020.

**The 2021 ticket and hotel confirmation numbers will remain the same in 2020**

Important Note: Please do not contact the B Hotel directly to cancel or rebook your room.

I don’t think I can make it to Tidal Wave in 2021. I’d like refunds for the Tidal Wave Ticket(s) and my B Hotel deposit. What do I do?2020-03-28T12:58:07-04:00
  • On or before, March 31, 2020, send us an email at info@tidalwaveparty.com.
  • In the subject line, put “Cancel My Ticket and B Hotel Reservation”.
  • In the email, please include your name, email address, phone number with area code, your Confirmation number for your Tidal Wave ticket, and the confirmation number for your hotel reservation.

We will refund the cost of your Tidal Wave ticket(s) and the B Hotel deposit you paid. Those refunds will appear as two separate credits on the credit card used for the original ticket order and hotel reservation. Once we receive your email, it will take approximately 60 days for us process your refunds.

 

Important Notes: Please do not contact the B Hotel directly. You must cancel your ticket/hotel reservations by March 31. For cancellations after March 31, refunds will be subject to a 4.95% processing fee. Refunds for Tidal Wave ticket(s) may be credited to your account on a different day as the refund for your hotel deposit.

What happens if I can’t find my confirmation ID for the tickets or the B Hotel reservation confirmation number?2020-03-28T12:58:00-04:00

Your Content Goes HereThe confirmation for the Tidal Wave Tickets would have been sent to you in an email from “ExpoPass“. The confirmation ID is seven characters (letters and numbers) and appears at the top, middle portion of the page.

The confirmation for the B Hotel reservation would have been sent to you in an email from “reservations@bresortlbv.com“. The confirmation # is 12 characters (numbers and letters) in length and appears in the top 1/3 of the page just below the “itinerary number”.

If you cannot find your confirmation ID or number, we will look up your information based on the name used for making the original plans so please be sure that name is referenced in the email.

Can I get my Tidal Wave ticket refunded, but keep my hotel room OR can I get my B Hotel room deposit back, but keep my Tidal Wave ticket?2020-03-28T12:57:56-04:00

Unfortunately, both the Tidal Wave ticket(s) and the hotel reservations are linked so we have to either roll both forward to 2021 or cancel them both and issue refunds.

If I cancel my plans now, but decide to participate in Tidal Wave 2021, can I get my ticket and hotel reservation back?2020-03-28T12:57:50-04:00

We’d love to have you at Tidal Wave 2021, but if you cancel your plans now, we cannot reactivate your ticket order or hotel reservation from Tidal Wave 2020. You would have to order new tickets and make new hotel reservations at the time you decide to attend and those would all be subject to availability and 2021 pricing.

When will registration open for Tidal Wave 2021?2020-03-28T12:57:45-04:00

Registration for Tidal Wave 2021 will be September 12, 2020 (subject to change).

I have 2020 reservations at the Doubletree Hotel and want to cancel my plans. What do I do?2020-03-28T12:57:39-04:00
  • On or before, March 31, 2020, just send us an email at info@tidalwaveparty.com with “Cancel My Ticket – DoubleTree” in the subject line.
  • In the email, please include your name, email address, phone number, your Confirmation number for your Tidal Wave ticket.
  • You will need to contact the Doubletree Hotel directly to cancel your hotel reservations.
I have 2020 reservations at the Doubletree and I want to roll those forward to 2021. What do I do?2020-03-28T12:57:34-04:00
  • On or before, March 31, 2020, just send us an email at info@tidalwaveparty.com.
  • In the subject line, put “Count me in for 2021!”.
  • In the email, please include your name, email address, phone number, your Confirmation number for your Tidal Wave ticket, and your hotel name and confirmation number for your hotel reservation.
I have 2020 reservations at the Doubletree Hotel, but I plan to come to Tidal Wave in 2021 and would like to move to the B Hotel. Can I do that?2020-03-28T12:55:08-04:00

If you are not cancelling your plans, we will offer you the opportunity to move into one of the cancelled rooms at the B Hotel on a first-come, first-served basis (based on the time stamp of your original ticket purchase). If you are planning to move to the B Hotel from the Doubletree Hotel, you must adhere to the 4-night minimum stay.

If I can’t get my flight refunded by the airline, will Tidal Wave reimburse me for my airfare?2020-03-28T12:55:34-04:00

Fortunately, most airlines are providing refunds or credits toward future flights. Just be sure to notify your airline right away of your change in plans to maximize your options. If you forget to cancel your flight, some may not refund your money or provide a credit. Unfortunately, Tidal Wave is not in a position to reimburse you for your airfare or other travel expenses.

Will the 2021 Tidal Wave event still include an option for a water park party?2020-03-28T12:56:09-04:00

Yes, that’s the plan at this point. It could change, but our intent is to provide access to RipTide or another water park event during Tidal Wave in 2021.

What other events and activities are planned for Tidal Wave 2021?2020-03-28T12:56:37-04:00

Our intent is to develop an event very similar to what we were planning for 2020. Of course, things can change in a year, but we will adjust accordingly to make sure we provide the kind of experience you’d expect at Tidal Wave.

I’m so confused! Help!2020-03-28T12:57:11-04:00

No worries and we apologize for any stress this change may cause. Just send us an email at info@tidalwaveparty.com and outline any questions/concerns you may have and we will be glad to address those. It may take a few days, depending on the volume of emails we receive, but we WILL get back to you. We promise.
