How to afford Senior Week for the newly 2014 graduate!
The caps have been thrown, the yearbooks have been signed and the parents have been convinced – Senior Week 2014 is right around the corner. But seniors, there are some tips of the trade you should listen to before you pack up your bathing suits (and maybe your beer +21) and head to the beach. There have been many posts and questions asked about how much it costs for Senior Week, we at My Senior Week wanted to help guide you in the right direction. (Top 10 Tips for Senior Week)
First off finding a rental or place to stay during senior week can cost anywhere from a couple hundred dollars to thousands! If you want to be right on the boardwalk and closer to the inlet then you will be paying premium dollar for your housing. If you can choose to be in the higher streets it will decrease the rental price. Looking for a senior week friendly house is hard because most seniors get a bad reputation from past years. Noise violations, drug use and extra people in your rental are just a few reasons you can automatically become evicted. If you want to learn more check out the "Busted" section.
Staying at senior week for a week means 7 days of fun! It also means over 21 meals (lots of water), H20 Nite Club entrance money ($10 before 8:30 and $20 after), T-shirts memorabilia, suntan lotion (because everyone forgets it), and lots of other expenses. Even being smart with your money you are going to need at least $500 to $1000. Keeping at least $100 in cash is also helpful as most places on the boardwalk take cash, though they are slowly switching to taking credit cards.
Where are you located?H2O is located on Worcester Street, right of the Boardwalk. Worcester Street is 5 blocks south of the Rt. 50 bridge. If driving from the north, turn left at the water tower located in the Worcester Street parking lot.
What are the age restrictions?By city ordinance, anyone entering H2O must be at least 15 years old and cannot be over 20. There are no exceptions.
What if I don't have an ID?It is always best if you have some form of ID from the state or your school. If not, a parent or guardian can verify your age or we will ask you some questions that will help us determine your age. If you are older than 18, H2O requires some form of ID.
What if I am under 20 but my friend is 21 or older?We are sorry but we cannot allow anyone older than 20 to enter H2O. Unfortunately, there are no clubs in Ocean City that allow a mix of over and under 21.
What are your hours of operation?H2O opens at 8:30pm and must close no later than 12:45am.
How much does it cost to enter H2O?The best deal is to be in line before 8:30 and it is only $10, which is half off the regular, full price admission of $20. You can also get a discount off the full price admission using a coupon from this web site.
Do I just need to be in line by 8:30 to get the half off admission price?Yes. All you have to be is in line. We will stamp your hand which notes the half price admission.
Once you pay, can you leave and re-enter?Yes, you can leave and re-enter as often as you like.
Do you sell any drinks or food?H2O does not sell any food but does sell bottles of water, sodas, sports drinks and Red Bull. Prices range from $2.75 to $4.75.
Are parents allowed to enter?No one over the age of 20 is permitted on premises. For parents interested in checking out H2O, we are always happy to give them a tour.
Is there public transportation that is convenient to H2O?Yes, the city busses run 24 hours a day in the summer and there is a bus stop at the corner of Baltimore Ave. and Worcester Street.
What taxi company would you recommend?H2O highly recommends Taxi Taxi, 410-289-8989. They have a large fleet of taxi cabs, shuttle busses and a party bus. They can accommodate large or small groups and will travel outside of town and to Delaware.
