Thank you to host Ashley Williams of Good Day Sacramento for coming out live to Funderland on National Rollercoaster Day (Wednesday, August 16th) and celebrating the special day here at the park, riding 7 of our 10 rides while live on TV! We enjoyed watching her live interviews of our guests and staff, and her and her cameraman sharing their many riding adventures with Good Day Sacramento viewers, including a Point-Of-View ride on our Flying Dragon roller coaster so viewers could ride along with them, the perfect way to commemorate a day devoted to roller coasters! Thank you, Ashley, and everyone at Good Day Sacramento!

WE GUARANTEE YOU CAN NOW SIMPLY PURCHASE YOUR ADMISSIONS AND ENTER IMMEDIATELY WHEN YOU ARRIVE AT OUR MAIN GATE EVERY DAY WE’RE OPEN!
TERRIFIC NEWS! WE ARE THE “INFLATION-BUSTERS” THIS YEAR! OUR CHILD, ADULT, AND SENIOR ADMISSION PRICES, AND OUR BIRTHDAY PARTY PACKAGE PRICING, ARE NOT INCREASING FOR THE 2023 SEASON!And remember, all of the “Pay-One-Price” (POP) admission prices shown below include entry to the park AND unlimited rides for the entire day of your visit, for children, adults, and seniors!

NEW! FOR YOUR CONVENIENCE IF YOU PREFER TO PURCHASE ADMISSIONS IN ADVANCE, OR FOR GIFT PURCHASES, WE NOW HAVE AN ONLINE STORE WHERE YOU CAN EASILY PURCHASE OUR SINGLE-DAY UNLIMITED-RIDE PAY-ONE-PRICE ( POP ) ADMISSIONS AND 2023 SEASON PASSES AT THE SAME PRICE CHARGED AT OUR MAIN GATE, WITH NO ADDITIONAL FEES OR TAXES: SEE OUR HOMEPAGE AND CLICK ON THE RED “SHOP NOW” BUTTON TO BE LINKED TO OUR ONLINE STORE!

Note: Reservations are no longer necessary. The State of California, as part of its revision and updating of their Covid-19 requirements, allowed our park and rides to return to normal capacity as of June 15, 2021, therefore the online admission reservation system that existed during the first part of the pandemic was no longer needed, and the fact we have been allowed to return to normal ride capacity also means shorter lines for the rides, and more rides for you per day!
OUR COVID-19 AND MASKING POLICY: Please note we are following the Honor System mask-wearing policy now in place for potentially crowded outdoor venues where close contact is unavoidable (because our ride operators must check your ride safety restraints, for example): We welcome and appreciate those who continue to wear masks for the safety of themselves and others. We ask those who are feeling ill and/or have tested positive for Covid not to visit Funderland until they are well and test negative. We are, and always have been, committed to the safety of you, your family, your fellow guests, and our employees. Thank you for your help and kindness!
OUR FOOD & DRINK POLICY: We do allow you to bring your own food and drinks into the park, however, please note that we cannot allow anything that needs to be cooked, warmed, or barbecued inside our park. No alcoholic beverages are allowed, and no glass or breakable containers or bottles. We also cannot allow coolers, ice chests, and opaque containers or cooling/heating bags. (Small, collapsible soft-sided cooling bags for guests’ medical needs are allowed). Note that contents of all bags and containers will be subject to inspection at the Main Gate prior to entry. For your convenience and enjoyment, also note that our FunderTreats Concession Stand is always available for food, drink, and amusement park treat purchases every day we are open!
