 We encourage the purchase of prepaid passes for many of our groups and ask that you call the park office for more information.  All groups arriving in cars must purchase prepaid passes or will be charged the full rate at the gate.  Groups arriving in a bus can pay upon arrival or prepay through the park office.

Family Reunions and Birthday Parties

We understand that it may be difficult to get an exact headcount and prepay for an event with family and friends.  As long as your group has scheduled a reservation with our office, your group can purchase group rate tickets at our admissions booth providing they state the name of your group.

If you are hosting an event at the park, please call the park office if you wish to make table reservations.

Additionally children 12 & under who schedule their birthday party at the park will receive a birthday badge and a $5 Gift Shop Voucher with the purchase of 20 or more prepaid passes.
