I bought my tickets in advance at AAA and saved money and I also thought I would save time once I got to the park. However, I was wrong...I still had to stand in huge lines to exchange my tickets for armbands. I was at the ticket booth near the sky ride (don't go there! Go to the main ticket exchange, which has more windows open!) and it only had 1 person working and long, long lines. Everyone in front of me is angry & walking away from the ticket booth very annoyed and when I get to the window I figure out why...after standing in line for at least 30 minutes, everything is closed due to a storm that had came through earlier. This is fine for me-- safety first, but couldn't they have had someone tell you this BEFORE you stood in line?!? No other employees anywhere around, except of course the git shops. I could still exchange my tickets, but couldn't use them.
At this point, we walked to the museum where an employee announced attractions were all open again, so then we went to the other ticket exchange. This area had plenty of ticket windows open, but no one seemed to know what was going on! While in line, an employee announced to everyone that all attractions were still closed. What? I went and told him what the museum employee announced and he said he would check on it. Sure enough, it was all open again. How can no one know what's going on? This type of establishment should really be more organized!
This is not an inexpensive place so if you can't use your armbands to the fullest, then save your money. If I could have, I would have left and came back another day to exchange our tickets but our schedule didn't permit this & there were no refunds on tickets. I am glad we went but it was more of a theme park atmosphere than a real park-- expensive, everything is spread out, lots of walking, and employees who don't seem to communicate obvious things like whether the attractions are even or not with each other. Great place, just be prepared.
