Guide for Guests with Special Needs

It is our goal to provide a safe, affordable, and enjoyable setting for family recreation. Some of our guests may have needs that will affect their use of the park. This information will assist our guests with special needs in planning an enjoyable visit.

Parking

Handicap Accessible parking stalls are located in each parking lot. They are conveniently located and marked by the standard wheelchair symbol/sign.

Our Main Pavilion houses basic park services such as restrooms, food, beverages, arcade games, and first aid. Access to the Main Pavilion is gained via entrances on the North and South sides of the building.

Exit Pass

Each ride has its own loading and unloading procedures that our ride operators would be happy to explain. If a guest is unable to wait in line, exit clearance may be granted to that person, plus up to three companions, to assist in loading and unloading. Guests using an exit clearance pass will be allowed to board the next ride first. A pass for this is available at the ticket window.

Safety is a top priority of our entire staff. Ride Manufacturers, Safety Inspectors, and Park Management set the guidelines to protect all park guests. Please assist us by using your best judgment as to which rides are safely accessible for our guests with special needs.
