    Hey all... question. In the past I have experienced that the popular rides take at least a couple hours to get on, so I have always purchased the fast pass. Any idea how this has changed since I had been over 15 years ago (yipes!)??

      someone who has a season pass told me it should be ok on a thursday but I suppose we can always decide to buy on the day if its bad!

    August 1, 2014

    • Kal

      The thing is midway area is too far away from me but thanks for the offer.

  • Sue

    Hi everyone, I am so bummed, I have a business trip and now have to extend one more day. So I won't be back. But it looks like you all will have an awesome time.

    August 1, 2014

  • Kal

    I hate to ask this but is anyone going from the Chicago area and have an extra place in their car? I would appreciate it if you can take me with you.

    Ladies, if you bring a small purse to throw over diagonally you will be fine. But less is better since you will be asked to put it in a cubbie on the ride platform. And the water park is fairly close to the front if the park. So if you leave your suit in the car you can get your hand stamped to get back in.

    I have had a season pass for the past 8 years. When we go to the water park we leave all our valuables in the car and only take the car key, cards, and money putting them in a small water proof pouch(ordered water proof pouch from amazon). Leave clothes and towel, and water shoes near ride or in a lawn chair. Never had an issue with anything being stolen. The lockers are very expensive in the water park and you can't leave your things in there all day either. Only during the water park hours.

    July 29, 2014

  • Paul B.

    Hey all. I didn't even think about the water park. I may bring a change of clothes just in case. As for the lockers, There is an area you can get a locker in and you just have to pay every time you open and close it. I wouldn't bring anything that you would want to lock up on every ride. If its a small enough bag it shouldn't be a problem. If anyone needs a ride my truck can hold 3 more people. I will be coming from the Chicago Midway area. Hope this helps. See you all there.

    July 28, 2014

    • Leane

      I think some of the lockers are pay for each use and some are pay all day.

      July 28, 2014

    • maggie P.

      The water park lockers are pay once and all day in and out

      July 28, 2014

  • Leane

    Recommendations: Don't do water park. There are cool water rides in the main park if you want to get wet. Bring a change of clothes (and shoes!) for the end of the day as I love changing into dry clothes for the ride home. Get a locker at the start of the day that has all day in-and-out privileges to store things and any bags/purses (2-4 people can share). You cannot bring bags onto the rides and they no longer offer the temp spot to hold the bag while you ride (liability issues). If you can fit it into a pocket or tuck it into your shirt, you should be ok. Don't forget sunblock. You can bring a water bottle into the park, but no other outside food or drink.

    Hi everyone... not long now ! I have bought my ticket online - be great if everyone else can also as good savings and also save time when we get there. Park opens at 10.30am so as soon as we are all there we can queue up ... anyone have any tips as to what you can take in with you ? I heard something about you have to pay for lockers at every ride if you have even a tiny bag etc ?

    July 28, 2014

  • Paul B.

    will be coming from the Chicago midway area. I can take 3 in a carpool.

    Great to see people signing up for this :-) Looking forward to meeting you all ... what do people think re whether it's likely to be busy enough to warrant us pre buying the gold fast track tickets at $70 extra?
    Also I will be coming via cab from the Red Roof Inn, Downtown Chicago if anyone else is travelling from that direction?

      It is summer but it's a Thursday, so may not be so crazy. I asked 2 of my friends, who basically live there and they said it's not needed.
