QUICK TIPS AND GUIDELINES

ACCESSIBILITY

Joyland will try to accomodate guests with special needs in a responsibile manner whenever possible.

In order to go on an attraction you must meet all restrictions, be mentally alert, able to hold on as required without any assistance, be able to enter and exit a vehicle without help from Joyland staff, utilize all safety devices & restraints, and safely evacuate the ride if needed. In order to ride the waterslides, guests need to be able to ascend slide tower steps without assistance from park staff. Joyland management reserves the right to refuse any guest access to an attraction which management deems unsafe for the individual. Park staff is not permitted to, nor trained to, physically assist guests onto or off the attractions.

CREDIT CARDS & ATMs

We welcome VISA, MASTERCARD, DISCOVER, and AMERICAN EXPRESS with a valid picture ID, that matches the credit card, for the purchase of entry admissions at the front gate and concessions.

An ATM Machine is located inside the park for your convenience.

DONATIONS

While we appreciate the opportunity to work with your organization/cause, Joyland has long-term commitments to several charitable organizations who receive the vast majority of our ticket donations. These charities have been specifically chosen as they have region-wide impact, and help a large number of people.

Any request for donations must be submitted on the official letterhead for the organization to Joyland in advance of the event.

Joyland receives thousands of requests for donations annually and as much as we would like to help each and every cause, we are financially unable to do so. We sincerely appreciate your interest in Joyland and wish your organization/cause all the best.

DRONE POLICY

Use of drones (in, over, or around Joyland), whether for photographic purposes or otherwise, is strictly prohibited (unless the user has been granted written, contractual permission for that specific instance from an owner of Joyland). Violations may subject the user to immediate ejection, confiscation of the drone, and referral of the matter to authorities. Drones are a serious safety hazard to ride operations, park operations (including electrical facilities), and to Joyland’s guests and personnel.

RIDE RESTRICTIONS

Height and/or weight restrictions apply to a number of Joyland rides and attractions. These restrictions have been put in place for safety purposes and are strictly enforced.

SAFTEY GUIDELINES

Certain attractions have restrictions based upon height and/or size as well as physical or medical conditions. Signs are posted at the entrance to each attraction that give you guidelines about restrictions and safety. Please follow these rules to ensure a safe experience for you and others. Decide before your ride-watch the ride in operation and read all restrictions before you determine whether a particular ride is really for you.

Guests with recent surgery, heart problems, high blood pressure, neck or back problems, seizures, pregnancy, or have any other condition that may be aggravated by riding must use discretion in selecting which rides to ride. You know your medical history and any restrictions or limitations – the park does not. It is up to you to use good judgment when deciding which rides to ride. If you suspect your well-being could be at risk, or you could aggravate a pre-existing condition, do not ride the ride.

All passenger restraint systems, including lap bars, shoulder harnesses and seatbelts, must be positioned and fastened properly to allow guests to ride. Due to rider restraint system requirements, guests of exceptional size may not be accommodated on some of our rides. Those whose size does not allow for the proper use of safety measures and devices are not permitted. Those with a physical and/or mental disability such that they cannot use the safety devices properly are not permitted to ride.
