Rainy Day Guarantee

If rain affects the ride offer for an hour or more continuously during your visit, you can return for free on selected dates. Pre-booking a reservation ticket is essential. Only applicable on online pre-booked entry tickets.

Unfortunately, wet weather can disrupt our rides and attractions. In some cases, we have to close certain rides until any bad weather passes. We cannot predetermine ride closures, but we will provide real-time updates on our App.
If Resort-wide ride availability is disrupted continuously due to rain for an hour or more during your visit, we'll give you a FREE day ticket for a return visit within 12 months. Please note that only 1 day tickets purchased on are eligible for the Rainy Day Guarantee.

For full terms and conditions including tickets not eligible, please see the terms and conditions at the bottom of this page.
