We look forward to seeing you here among the big William Land Park shade trees for some rollicking summer outdoor Funderland FUN!

NATIONAL CAROUSEL DAY IS THURSDAY, JULY 25th, and we are celebrating with a special $3.00 unlimited-ride Carousel-only wristband giving riders of all ages (children & adults!) entry to Funderland AND unlimited rides on our Classic Carousel, which has been operating here at Funderland since 1948, valid on that day only from 11:00am to 2:00pm! And, if you would like to upgrade to an unlimited-ride wristband valid for all of our rides you’ll be able to upgrade inside the park by paying the difference in price between the special $3.00 Carousel-only wristband and our regular unlimited-ride admission prices! Join us at Funderland to celebrate National Carousel Day, also known as National Merry-Go-Round Day, with a spin or ten on our historic Classic Carousel, which has been delighting riders for generations since its opening here at Funderland ( then known as William Land Park’s Kiddieland and Amusements ) in 1948! Curious how the holiday began, and why? The holiday was created by the National Carousel Association (N.C.A.) as a way to mark the registration of the first patent for a carousel design in 1871 by William Schneider! Join us for the celebration on Thursday, July 25th!

  • Safety Note: All ride safety decisions made by our Ride Operators regarding whether a guest will be able to safely ride are final: Please remember Ride Operator safety decisions are made for your safety.

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!

  • What happened to your tickets? 
    • Due to the COVID-19 pandemic we had to change the way we did business.  When we were allowed to reopen early in the pandemic, in June 2020, we were required to switch to a gated-admission pricing structure so we could monitor the park’s required reduced capacity set for us by the State and County at that time.  Over the following year, during that time of mandatory reduced capacity operations, the majority of our guests, by far, made it clear to us they preferred the new gated admission and unlimited-rides “Pay-One-Price” (POP) admission pricing for its ease-of-use, improved park perimeter safety, faster ride queues, and value, so we continued the POP admissions for all ages when we were allowed to return to normal capacity! Everyone, of all ages, pays one low price at the Main Gate that gives them both entry to Funderland AND unlimited rides for the entire day of their visit! ( Note: Infants and Children under 34 inches tall are Free at all times, and Parking is always Free ). All but one of our ten rides and attractions are rideable by both children and adults ( subject to the specific safety guidelines posted at each ride ), so children can share the riding adventures with their adults! ( One ride, our Oscar the Fisher ride, is only for guests under 42 inches tall ).
  • Are the old individual paper ride tickets still accepted? 
    • The old paper individual ride tickets formerly sold at Funderland prior to the pandemic’s beginning in March of 2020 ( no individual ride tickets have been sold since March of 2020 ) were accepted as full-face-value credits toward the new POP admissions for both the 2020 season (from our reopening in late June 2020 through November 2020) and 2021 season (from February 2021 through November 2021), which we announced frequently during both seasons through all of our public announcement and inquiry informational options (such as here at our website, through social media on Facebook and Instagram, and through our Main Gate Ticket Sellers and inquiries to our Office). As previously announced, then, the old ride tickets expired at the close of our 2021 season, on Sunday, November 28, 2021.
  • Does everyone have to pay to get into the park?
    • Yes. Everyone 34 inches tall and above must purchase an unlimited-ride admission to enter ( Children under 34 inches tall are Free, but they may still be able to ride five of our ten rides if they have head and body control, meaning they can sit upright in a seat without being held up by someone else ). The new Pay-One-Price ( POP ) Admission prices, for all ages, include both entry into Funderland AND unlimited rides for the entire day of your visit. As previously noted, all but one of our ten rides and attractions are rideable by both children and adults, subject to the specific safety guidelines posted at each ride and attraction. (One ride, our Oscar the Fisher ride, is only for children under 42 inches tall.) ( Note: Parking is always Free ).
  • Do babies need to pay to enter the park? 
    • Infants and Children under 34 inches tall are always Free.
  • What rides can a two-year-old ride? 
    • A two-year-old is able to ride up to eight of our current ten rides and attractions at Funderland. They can ride our Red Baron Planes, Classic Carousel, Backroads Buggies, Crazy TeaCups, Oscar the Fisher, and Funderland Express Train, and can also enter and navigate our Fort Funhouse two-story jungle gym attraction (all subject to the latest Safety Guidelines posted at each attraction’s entrance, of course). They can ride our Flying Dragon Roller Coaster with an adult if they are at least 36 inches tall. ( Note that rides and attractions and safety guidelines are subject to change, and will be updated in the park and on this informational page ).

Visitor Comments

I’m impressed by how Funderland caters to families … The great thing is the simplicity. The park size is easily manageable for parents with young kids … Our family is pumped that we finally discovered Funderland Amusement Park and can’t wait to go again.
