4 Important Steps to Take Before You Visit
By planning for your visit a few days ahead of time, you’ll build up anticipation and reduce effort when you arrive. Find out when to visit, what to bring, where to buy tickets, and how to make the most of your day. Take a few quick steps to prepare for your visit before you leave the house.
1. Check our park hours.
Our operating hours may vary by day. Review the calendar on our website for the latest schedule on the day you plan to visit. Be sure to also check social media for any special announcements for the day. Arrive close to opening and stay until closing to make sure you have plenty of time to experience everything. Our website also shows what special events and Dive-In Movies are happening at the park each day. Plan accordingly if you want to participate in one of the activities.
2. Buy your tickets online.
You can save time and money when you buy your tickets in advance from our website. Depending on the day you visit, you could save up to $5 on general admission. Store your tickets on your phone or print them out and skip the ticket booths at the park – just head straight to the front gate. You can also buy parking, Meal Deals, cabanas, THE FLASH Passes, and other useful items for your visit.
3. Pack a light bag.
You don’t want to lug around a heavy bag, but you need some essential items to stay carefree all day. Grab your flip-flops or water shoes, sunglasses, and a hat. Pack an extra set of dry clothes to stay comfortable on the ride home. Apply sunscreen before you leave – plus bring the entire bottle with you to re-apply it throughout the day! Put your phone, money, and personal items in a clear plastic bag to make it easy to scan at security and keep them dry against your wet towel. Pack your small bag and set it by the front door to grab when you leave.
4. Gather your group.
The more, the merrier! Get your group together to spend a day at the park. Tell your whole gang you’re heading to the park and everyone’s invited. Whether you’re celebrating a special occasion, family reunion, or just a get-together with your best friends, everyone can get in on the fun. If you recruit 15 people to visit with you, you’ll also get discounted admission rates!
