Hurricane Harbor waterpark, water rides, and children’s areas will not be open. But that still leaves you with 15 coasters and tons of other thrilling rides to ride all night long!

No. Grad Nite is not open to the public. It’s a private event held exclusively for graduates and chaperones and only registered schools who have pre-paid will be allowed entry.

What if I don’t like roller coasters? Are there other things to do?

There is no shortage of fun during Grad-Nite! We have a DJ-hosted dance areas plus interactive games and activities around the park to keep you busy.

Is there a dress code for Grad Nite?

Yes. We don't require black tie and formals, but you should definitely dress comfortably. Make sure to check the weather too! A light jacket may be a good idea.
