Does each person in the group need a ticket to get into the park?
Yes, everyone age two and above is required to have an admission ticket to enter the park. We suggest that group leaders distribute a ticket to every group member before entering the park to speed up park entry.

Sunny Day Tickets are issued if it rains continuously for one hour while a guest is in the park. Guests who leave the park during the time it rains may trade their admission ticket at Guest Relations for a Sunny Day Ticket to return at a future date. Guests will receive one Sunny Day Ticket per every paid admission ticket turned in. Guests who do not exchange their tickets on the date of their visit, forfeit their Sunny Day ticket. Complimentary guests are excluded from this offer.
