What time do I need to arrive for my timed ticket?

Please arrive within the first 20 minutes of your purchased slot. Due to the potential of winter weather/freezing temperatures and given that our indoor queue area is very small and cannot accommodate any other guests than those being called for their time slot, we recommend arriving no earlier than 5 minutes before the half hour time-slot you purchased (i.e. Arrive at 3:25 PM for a 3:30 - 4:00 PM Ticket) and no later than 20 minutes after the beginning of your time slot (I.e. No later than 3:50 PM for a 3:30-4:00 PM Ticket). Note your ticket is only valid for the date and time purchased. If you miss your time-slot, your ticket is no longer valid and entrance/admission is subject to the discretion of the management staff.

Can I exhange my ticket?

All tickets are final sale and non-transferrable to another date or time.

Can I transfer my ticket to someone else?

You are welcome to give your ticket(s) to someone else. We do not check ID’s and there is no name association with the tickets at this location.

How many tickets can I purchase?

You can purchase up to 10 tickets per order.

What if there is only 1 ticket available in my time-slot of choice?

Our website gets updated live as ticket sales occur so if you only see 1 ticket available in a time slot, it means we cannot accommodate more than 1 person at that time.

I want tickets for a particular time slot, but I do not see that time slot listed.

This simply indicates that the particular time slot either does not exist or it is 100% sold out. Due to capacity restrictions, we are unable to add tickets to sold out time slots.

When will I receive my tickets via email / text message?

You should receive your tickets shortly after your purchase. Please check your Junk/Spam mailbox as the email may have landed there.

Do I get food/drinks with my ticket?

There will be treats throughout the exhibit which are included with your ticket, as well as additional food and drink for purchase.

Do I need to print my ticket?

No, in fact, we discourage printing tickets! All you need is your smart phone/ tablet to present your ticket.

Do you refund tickets or change ticket times?

All tickets are all final sale.

What if the rest of my party arrives at a different time?

One person can check in for the rest of the party, but everyone in your party needs to arrive within the first 20 minutes of your purchased slot so that you can start and finish your Happy Place experience together. Trust us, it’s more fun that way!

Will I have enough time with my allocated time to finish the experience?

Yes. We’ve made sure the time slot allocated to you is enough to fully experience Happy Place.

Are there children and senior discounts?

If I purchase the last time slot of the day, will I have enough time to go thru the entire exhibit?

Yes!! Happy Place will stay open to ensure you get the full experience, but please be aware, we will close our doors to entry 20 minutes after the last time slot is scheduled to begin, so please arrive accordingly.
