My boyfriend and I will be going to Atlantis at the end of February. I generally wear a bikini top and board shorts for swimwear. The boyfriend also wears board shorts. I've been reading that there are restrictions on the water slides concerning swimwear (i.e. no metal buttons, clasps, etc.). All of my board shorts have small grommets around the draw strings at the waist. Is this going to be an issue? I've seen women's board shorts with elastic waists, but I have never seen a pair of guys board shorts without grommets, and I can't imagine guys are not allowed to wear shorts with grommets. Most also have zip pockets on the side. Anyone have experience with shorts with tiny amounts of metal? Will they let you on the slides?
I also have a great pair of Adidas "boat" shoes. They are true water shoes, but have laces and a fairly sturdy sole. Are the slide attendants going to take issue with these because they have somewhat rigid plastic?
Thanks in advance -- the Tripadvisor community always has great answers!
