What if I'd like to use a MyBoardwalk Card for rides?

MyBoardwalk Cards can be used on all Boardwalk rides.

What if I have a voucher for a Rides Wristband?


Guests with 2020 and 2021 Ride Wristband vouchers will be accommodated at the Season Pass Office or Ticket Booths. We recommend you arrive early to help ensure entry.

What if my child has a ride reservation and I do not?

The Boardwalk is admission-free, so you do not need a wristband to enter the park. If you would like to ride with your child, you can purchase a wristband for the day of your visit, a Season Pass valid any day in 2021, or a MyBoardwalk that can be used on individual rides. 

What if it rains?

Rides may close due to inclement weather. Please call (831) 423-5590 to confirm ride opening in the event of rain. If the rides do not open, refunds will be issued.

What if I don’t want to ride?

The Boardwalk is admission-free, so you do not need a wristband to enter the park. 

Does everyone in my party need to have a wristband?


No, only those who want to ride need a wristband. The Boardwalk is admission-free. 

Does my 2-year-old need a wristband to ride?

Ride Wristbands allow you access on all of the rides for the day. A MyBoardwalk Card can be used for individual rides (each ride is 5-8 points). You can choose the best option for your small child.

What is your face mask policy?

Per California face mask guidelines, the Boardwalk recommends all unvaccinated guests age 2 and older wear face masks when visiting the Boardwalk, riding rides or enjoying indoor shops, restaurants and attractions such as Neptune’s Kingdom and the Boardwalk Bowl. Vaccinated guests are welcome to enjoy the Boardwalk without wearing a mask.
