If I purchased a Day Pass earlier in the day, do I have to purchase a Dinosaurs After Dark ticket?
Yes. Dinosaurs After Dark is a separate, premium event and requires an additional ticket purchase. Tickets can be purchased online or at the door each night of the event.

When do ticket sales end each night?
Ticket sales will end each night at 8:30 pm.

Do we need to bring our own flashlights since this event takes place at night?
If you would like to, then yes!

Is this event scary? Can I bring my young children?
Our goal is to create a “spooky, not scary” walkthrough for younger children. Some encounters may be a bit spookier depending on the age of child, but this event is intended to be enjoyed by all ages! This is NOT a haunted house and does not feature planned jump scares or loud sounds.
