Season Passes

2022 Season Passes are now available! See purchasing options below.
New format this year:  passes will be valid for one year from the purchase date and can be renewed each year. 

Important Notice About Pass Purchasing: To ensure the pass discount is applied when making a day-use reservation, all passes must be assigned to the pass holders ReserveAmerica account. When purchasing a seasons pass as a gift, please purchase a gift card in the amount of the pass plus the $4.50 shipping fee. The recipient can then use their ReserveAmerica account and the gift card to purchase a season pass. Please verify that the shipping address associated with your ReserveAmerica account is correct. This must be a physical address.

For family passes at least one adult must be present for the pass to be valid. A season pass does not guarantee access to the park in the event it is full to capacity.  Due to the COVID-19 virus, our parks are currently operating at reduced capacity and we require advanced day-use reservations at many locations. When making a reservation you can select your season pass type and the admission or parking fee will be removed. Pass holders will still be charged a $1 transaciton fee to use the online reservation system.
