"Hatteras Island Rodanthe Waterfall Park." Hatteras Island Tourist Trap Tip by hatterasgal

Hatteras Island Tourist Traps: 3 reviews and 1 photos

PARENTS PLEASE!!!! Do not allow your children to visit the waterfall park in Rodanthe without adult supervision. We have a registered sexual offender that is now working and living at the waterpark. New state law will not take effect until Dec. 9 2007, (Jessica Lunsford Act ), which will prohibit registered sexual offenders from working anywhere that children are known to gather. Please check the Dept of Justice's web page, there is a link for sexual predators. Here you can varify the information I have given you. Select North Carolina, then zipcode 27968(Rodanthe). There you will see the picture of Michael Newnam aka Michael Newman. The address given is that of the Waterfall Park. I have personally verified that he is working there, and I see him on site. I will be placing pamplets, and parent"s tip sheets, which the Center for Missing and Exploited Children has so kindly donated, in various business' around the park. As residents of Hatteras Island, we all want your children to return home from their summer vacation at the beach, with nothing but happy and cherished memories. Please help us make this possible, by making sure either parents or a responsible adult, accompany your children( all ages), while visiting this park. Wishing us all, a safe and happy Summer.

Unique Suggestions: Please keep as close an eye on your children here, as you do at home. Report anything suspicious to Dare County Sheriff Department, by immediately dialing 911. You do not have to wait for a crime to be committed, before you call 911. Our guys are the best, and they are here to help you and your families stay safe.

Fun Alternatives: There are various waterparks in Nags Head, but it is approximately 27 miles away. Just remember, no distance is to great, when it involves the safety of your child.
