Buy Tickets Here

Get your tickets here!

Your tickets are good for any night of the event that we are open in the current season. There is no refund due to rain, power outages, and other unforeseen conditions. 

*You're so smart to buy your tickets in advance online! You won't have a ticket line to wait in and you'll be in the gates before your friends who didn't buy online.

**Don't forget to bring a print-out of the tickets you buy. You'll need to show them at the gate to get into the event. 

***Friends of City Park members please see the bottom of the page for details about your FREE admission! 

Tickets for the nightly event, train rides, and individual Amusement Park rides are available for purchase online. Unlimited Ride Bands must be purchased from the Ticket Booth inside Carousel Gardens Amusement Park.
