Check-in procedures for the Private Rental Leader:

    1. Check-in at the Pass Sales Office Window located thru the black gates to the right of the Admissions Box Office.
    2. Present your party guest list to the staff member checking you in. The guest list will be used to verify number of guests and also to allow you to enter the park separately from guest who may arrive late. You can enjoy yourself in the par, and our staff will happily verify you late guests when they arrive and direct them to you.
    3. Give your cake or cupcakes to the staff member checking you in. We will store your cake or cupcakes until your designated party time in our refrigerator. Due to limited storage capabilities, we can only store one, one-tier cake or box cup cakes. If you have included the catering option in your party, you are welcome to bring coolers to store your food.
    4. Fill out a Credit Card Authorization Form. This will ensure you don’t get charged for guests that do not arrive and allow you to easily add concession items to your party. When checking-out, your card will be charged and the form will be shredded.

Weather cancellations:

  • If a private rental is cancelled due to weather, the private rental can be rescheduled for another available date that season or receive a refund. The private rental contact will be notified if the park is closing the day of their rental. It is recommended that the private rental host is also checking the rain out line for updates on park opening/closings.
