All park rules and regulations extend and apply to all areas for vehicular, parking or pedestrian use, traffic, passage, access ingress and egress.

Vehicles must park in designated parking spaces.  Buses, other commercial or oversized vehicles and RVs may only park where permitted.  Blocking other vehicles is prohibited.  Blocking drive/fire lanes is prohibited.  Idling is prohibited by state law.  Violators may be fined.  You must reimburse us for any fine we incur due to any violation by you, anyone in your group/party, or any bus driver or other driver for your group/party.

Please present these items for inspection at the admission booth / security check.  Individuals with food allergies may bring in for themselves a small meal or snack (of products not sold in the park).  Please ask for a park manager at the admission booth / security check.  Individuals with medical, dietary or nutritional requirements may bring in for themselves their necessary food and beverage products (of products not sold in the park).

Park admission requires either a valid admission ticket or a membership.  Children under age 13 must be accompanied by a parent, legal guardian, or group leader.

Depending on the features, benefits, privileges, restrictions, price, membership term and other terms and conditions of the applicable membership offering, a membership is valid for park admission on normal operating days during either the calendar year in which it is purchased or the calendar year in which it is purchased plus the subsequent calendar year.

Individual memberships are only valid for use by the individual member to whom it is issued.  Individual memberships are not transferable, interchangeable, or refundable, in full or in part, for any reason.  Any membership used fraudulently may be revoked without refund, credit or exchange.  For example, permitting a person other than the original holder of an individual membership to use that membership constitutes a fraudulent use of that membership and may result in the revocation of that membership without refund, credit or exchange.

At the time of each visit, members must first stop at admissions to receive a wristband. Members are not permitted park entry without a valid wristband.  Member must either present their Diggerland USA-issued photo-identification membership card or participate in our voluntary finger-scan identification program.  Visit https://www.diggerlandusa.com/contact-us/frequently-asked-questions/ for additional information regarding our voluntary finger-scan identification program. 

At the time of a member’s first visit, the member informs admissions whether the member prefers to have taken a photo, for a photo-identification membership card, or a finger scan, for participation in our finger-scan identification program.  For membership validation for subsequent visits, to receive a wristband or member-only in-park discounts, the member only needs to present the chosen method of identification.  Lost membership cards can be replaced at an admissions desk for a fee of $5.00 with proper member identification.

A membership permits park entry during normal operating days and hours but not for or during special events or private or special parties, for which a separate admission fee is charged, or which are not open to the public generally.  A membership does not include the use of any rides, attractions, activities or facilities for which a separate fee or cost is charged, for example, the Soaring Eagle, seasonal and other in-park activities for which a fee is charged, stroller rental, equipment rental, arcade, games, food and beverage, merchandise, special events and private or special parties.

The features, benefits, privileges, restrictions, price, membership term and other terms and conditions of memberships offered to or purchased by you or currently being offered may differ from those of other memberships previously offered or sold or later offered or sold.  Holders of memberships previously sold may therefore have available to them features, benefits, privileges, restrictions, term and other terms and conditions which are no longer offered, are not currently being offered and are not part of any currently-available or later membership offering.

Any programs, events, specials, discounts, sales, admission terms or other offers being offered or running, or announced to be offered or to be run at a future time, may be modified, suspended or cancelled at any time with or without notice.

At peak times (e.g., during holidays, weekends, school breaks, summer, and times that overlap with large or a number of parties or special or private events) as well as during other times the number of guests in the park can approach or reach maximum capacity.  The park generally operates on a first-come, first-serve basis.  At no time do we promise or guaranty that every guest will have available seating, a table or any other item or facility.  We do not promise or guaranty entry on a specific date and we do not accept reservations, except as otherwise provided for parties for which the necessary reservation is made, booked, accepted and paid for in advance, and special events and private or special parties that are scheduled and advertised as an event for which reservations can be made, provided that the necessary reservation is made, booked, accepted and paid for in advance.

We may from time to time, without prior notice and without refund, credit or exchange: change the operating days and hours of the park or certain attractions, rotate or limit access to certain attractions, or temporarily close the park or any part of it, or restrict the number of persons having access to the park or any part of it, or suspend or cancel any attraction, party or event, in each case, for any reason or purpose including: for maintenance, repair, replacement, improvement or upgrade of attractions or of other facilities, machinery or equipment; for special events and private or special parties; capacity limits or restrictions; severe or inclement weather or wind; lightning; loss of power, electricity or other necessary utilities or services; in response to police or other governmental order or action; any other circumstance, occurrence or event that we in our discretion determine requires such response(s) or action(s) so as to ensure safety, security or order or for any other reasonable purpose.

We will endeavor to give members who subscribe to our email notifications advance notice of the dates on which the park will be closed; nevertheless, park closures may occur without prior notice.
