Our Policy: Kentucky Kingdom welcomes families and guests of all ages. It is the intention of this policy to enlist the cooperation of parents and other adults responsible for children to ensure that our park continues to provide a safe and enjoyable experience for all. Responsibility for children attending the park rests with the parent/guardian/assigned chaperone, not with Kentucky Kingdom personnel. Details of the policy are as follows:
Family-friendly costumes are welcome at Pumpkins at Kentucky Kingdom, with the following guidelines:
The park reserves the right to deny admission to, or remove, any person wearing attire that is inappropriate or that could detract from the experience of other guests.
Kentucky Kingdom and Hurricane Bay is a family-friendly environment prioritizing guest and team member safety. As such, all guests must wear appropriate attire when enjoying pools, rides, and attractions.
For their own safety, guests must wear proper clothing (shoes, shirts, and shorts, pants, or cover-ups) for admission to Kentucky Kingdom and at all times while inside the amusement park.
Clothing or body art that is rude, vulgar, or contains inflammatory language or graphics must be covered.
In addition to all posted rider safety requirements, all waterpark guests must follow the dress code below.
For your safety, all swim shirts (such as rash guards) and religious headwear must be tight-fitting.
Kentucky Kingdom and Hurricane Bay reserves the right to require additional or different attire when and where deemed appropriate and refuse admission or attraction participation to anyone not properly attired. Refusal to comply with the dress code or posted rider safety requirements may result in ejection from the property.
Kentucky Kingdom is excited to offer plan-ahead pricing, giving you the chance to lock in the lowest guaranteed price at the time of booking! Plan-ahead pricing helps you book a visit that works best with both your schedule AND your wallet.
As of January 15, 2024, all Kentucky Kingdom online purchases will be subject to a processing fee.
The park has three (3) Health Services locations: See park map for locations. Our licensed Emergency Medical Technicians (EMTs) are here to service your medical needs. In accordance with medical protocol, our EMTs may not dispense medication. If you need medication, please plan to bring your own or you may purchase from a selection of over-the-counter medications in our gift shops.
Outside food or beverages may not be brought into the park, with limited exceptions (e.g., infant formula, baby food, etc.). Guests may bring empty refillable water bottles into the park. Refillable water stations are located throughout the park. We offer a wide variety of restaurants and snack options throughout the park (click here to view menus). You may also leave the park to eat – simply show your ticket or season pass to re-enter the same day.
Kentucky Kingdom’s season pass provides great value for our guests by providing them unlimited admission to both Kentucky Kingdom and Hurricane Bay, discounts on all food and merchandise purchases, and free (with special Gold Passholder Souvenir Cup or Diamond Passholder Tumbler) or discounted fountain drinks all season long. We also sell a 28-ounce Kentucky Kingdom souvenir bottle, which guests can purchase and then fill with fountain drinks for only $1.00 per refill throughout the season (during that season only; the same bottle cannot be used in subsequent seasons). Vending machines stocked with Pepsi products are also conveniently located throughout the park.
ID wristbands are available at Guest Services or any of our three (3) Health Services (first aid) locations. Parents/Guardians may write their cell phone number on the wristband, allowing park staff to contact them if the wearer becomes separated from the group.
Pickup and drop-off location for Uber, Lift and passenger vehicles is at 934 Phillips Ln. Drivers will need to turn into the Executive Strike & Spare parking lot and drive through the access gate at the end of the lot. Passengers will be able to exit the vehicle at this location and walk to the Kentucky Exposition Center or Kentucky Kingdom, while drivers will be able to exit the property on the right via Freedom Way. Parking refunds are not available. Only Licensed Taxis, Hotel and Show Shuttles should enter Gate 1 and drop off at the designated location based on the event. By default, taxis and hotel shuttles should drop-off adjacent to the fountain on Freedom Way and exit Gate 1 or 6.

Service animals are not permitted on rides and must remain with a non-riding member of the party while the owner is on a ride. No other animals are permitted in the park. Be kind and clean up after your service animal. For detailed information on service animals, please visit www.ada.gov/service_animals_2010.htm.
