Child Wristbands

If you visit the information tent you can ask for a free child wristband. This helps us contact you in the unlikely event you get separated from your child. We also recommend taking a photo of your child to show our staff in case you get separated.

Sorry, No Dogs Allowed

We all love our furry friends but with so many children running around we ask that you leave your pets at home as a safety concern. Dogs or any domestic pets will NOT be allowed through the front gate.
