For the easiest access to Kentucky Kingdom and Hurricane Bay, enter the Kentucky Exposition Center (KEC) via Gate 2 or 4 (see KEC map for directions). The KEC charges a parking fee of $10.00 per car and $20.00 per bus. Season pass holders receive free parking on park operating days; they simply have to show their season pass to the parking attendant.
The KEC provides a 30-minute window for anyone dropping off guests at Kentucky Kingdom. Request a receipt when paying the parking fee and, after dropping off your passengers, leave the KEC via Gate 2 and present this receipt to the KEC parking attendant there. As long as you leave the premises within 30 minutes of entering, your parking fee will be refunded.
