Rides Information

How much are ride tickets?

The prices for each ride vary and can be seen by clicking on the individual rides here. Individual tickets range from $4 to $14. However, the best way to enjoy all we have to offer is to invest in a 48-hour unlimited rides pass. With this, you are even able to split your time up between two days – all for one convenient package and price. The pass is $30, or $40 if you’d like to add a one-time admission to The Island Ropes Course.

Where can I purchase tickets?

Tickets can be purchased at the Ticket Center, located next to Timberwood Grill. You can also purchase tickets online here.

What is your weather policy?

The majority of Island rides operate in the rain, unless there is lightning within the area or high winds, then our rides and ropes course will temporarily shut down for safety. The Island makes every effort to reopen the rides and attractions as quickly and safely as possible after inclement weather conditions cease. Several of the Island rides do not operate in temperatures less than 40 degrees. Refunds are not issued as individual rides tickets can be used up to 30 days after purchase and unlimited passes are good for 48 hours after purchase.

I'm pregnant. What attractions can I participate in?

Please consult your physician before visiting The Island to determine what is safest for you.
