Please note: Because of the proximity of the fireworks to Thunderbird and Crow’s Nest, access to Thunderbird Plaza will close 1/2 hour before park closing time on July 3, 4 & 5.
Happy Birthday, America! Please join us for our annual 4th of July Fireworks Extravaganza on July 3, 4 and 5!
No other park in the world has a themed 4th of July section, with rides, shows, shops and restaurants celebrating that special day in 1776.
New! Before the fireworks, feast on our scrumptious fried chicken, hamburgers, hot dogs, macaroni and cheese, veggies and dip, baked beans, cookies and brownies – all you care to eat for $14.99 per person. This all-you-can-eat 4th of July buffet is available July 3, 4 and 5 only at our Good Old Days Picnic Grove (next to Eagle’s Flight in our 4th of July section) from 6:00 to 7:30pm CDT. Event tickets are required to attend; free for children two and younger. Price does not include tax. Seating is limited: Reserve your meal tickets here.
And when it’s park closing time: Special souvenir 3D Fireworks Glasses are available (free on July 3, 4 and 5 only), plus Character Masks are 99 cents each. Simply slide your Character Mask (your choice of Holidog, George the Eagle, Kitty Claws or Safari Sam) over your 3D Glasses for extra fun!
The best places in the park to watch fireworks? Thanksgiving and Hyena Falls!
Not able to join us on July 3, 4 or 5? We celebrate Friday Night Fireworks each Friday in June and July!
