(Rides, shows, and attractions open at 12:00pm) Please keep in mind that you will need to pass thru the toll booths and pay for parking before you enter at the gates. Car parking charge is $10.00 or $15.00 for buses.
  • No food or beverage, with the exception of a sealed, unopened water bottle or plastic container for refill will be allowed into The Great Escape.
  • Don't forget to have each person bring LOTS of pre-popped popcorn, one 5 pound bag of sugar, and 1 quart of corn syrup with you in order to be able to help with the attempt to create the World's Largest Popcorn Ball! Those who bring all 3 items will be entered into a drawing to win a 2011 Season pass!
