Birthday Party FAQs

Guidelines for Birthday Parties and FAQs

-We believe in safety first. In case of inclement weather some rides may be unable to operate.

-In the event of a partial or complete closing you will be called in advance and given the option to reschedule.

-Q) I know the park takes care of the catering for the party, but what can I bring? A) Food and drink options are provided by the park with each party package. You are welcome to bring a birthday cake and a food tray (fruit, vegetable, or sandwich).

-Q) Will I need to stand by the entrance of the park to greet my guests? A) You can remain at your party location without any worries. We have attendants at every entrance who are given a daily list of parties. They will direct your guests to your party location.

-Q) How do the unlimited ride bands work? A) The unlimited ride bands bought for a birthday party are good for any child or adult party guest over 36 inches (the height at which kids can begin to enjoy some of the rides alone). The ride band must be securely attached to the wrist. These bands are good for the full day. After the party is over you are welcome to continue enjoying the rides until we close for the day.

-Q) Do Storyland and Carousel Gardens Amusement Park connect to one another? A) Yes, there is an opening near the Fun Slide in Carousel Gardens that leads into Storyland. Admission to either location grants access to both.

-Q) What if I need extra tables or chairs? A) You are welcome to bring extra tables and chairs for your party as long as they are picked up within 30 minutes of the close of the party.

-Q) Can I come early to decorate? A) Yes, you can come a half hour before your party to setup and decorate and stay a half hour after the party to clean up.

-Q) If my party's at City Putt, can we play both courses? A) Yes, you can play both courses for an extra fee.

-Q) What happens if my party's at City Putt and I have more than 25 people come who want to play mini golf? A) Anyone over the 25 person total can be added for a fee per person regardless of age (this does not include food).



The park has two gift shops: one in the Botanical Garden and one in the Casino Building.
