How do I purchase tickets for our school?  
You must create an account through our website if your school does not already have one. Once you create an account, we will send you a username and password. Once you have the username and password you will be able to enter our school portal. 
Will we get tickets or wristbands?  
If your school pre-pays you will receive wristbands ahead of time. 
How do I reserve a date for my school? 
When you place your order, you will need to choose the date your school will be coming. This is how we now do reservations for school. 
How do I reserve a pavilion for our school?  

You no longer call ahead of time for a pavilion.  We will assign a pavilion to your school as soon as you place an order. 

Does our school have to get a catered lunch to get pavilion space?  

NO! Most schools use this space for their students to check in throughout the day. They also use this space to gather the students before getting on their buses to depart. 

Can I change my order?  

Once your order is placed, we CANNOT change the order. 

What if we order too many tickets do we get a refund?  

We have a no-refund policy. Your school should order 10% less than the number needed. If you find you need more wristbands, you can purchase them upon arrival at the park for a discounted rate. 

Do you have rain dates?  

We are open rain or shine. We do not offer Rain dates. 

What happens if our school does not have a credit card?  

No worries we still allow schools to bring a check for the amount that was purchased on the website the day they arrive at the park.  

I missed the cut-off date to order tickets for our school can I place an order now?  

We are sorry to hear you missed the cut-off date for schools to receive discounted tickets. We cannot place more orders for schools once the cut-off date is passed. You will be able to come to the park and purchase tickets the day of if your school would still like to come.
