Guest Passes

Thank you for continuing to use the pre-printed (self-print) guest pass. It is speeding up the park entry for guests. Effective July 1st, we moved back to our original guest pass process and costs based on the excellent response from our community using the pre-printed option. Rates are $5 per guest pass (per day) and there is no cost to self-print at home or at the Main Gate. If our staff prints your pass, there is a $2 administration fee, so you’ll pay $7 total per pass (per day). Please remember if you still wish to have guest passes printed and picked up at the Main Gate, your guests must wear a mask when interacting with our Public Safety Team to receive their Guest Pass. No mask; no entry. Thank You.
