… then you’ll want to join your fellow coaster enthusiasts for HoliWood Nights 2022 on June 3 & 4 for this trip to the backyard! 

This year’s theme is: “Honey, I Shrunk the Event”

This popular annual event is open exclusively to card-carrying members of amusement park-related clubs (see sidebar for Partner Club list) and their Guests.

Bigger fun. Smaller waits. 

This year, in the spirit of “Honey, I Shrunk the Event,” we’re running an experiment. We’re limiting attendance to 500 Guests, and rather than announce the date and time tickets will go on sale, we’re asking you to submit a form to apply to attend. The good news is that we’re extending the event to Friday and Saturday, and we’re adding more fun to the itinerary. 

All attendees must digitally agree to the Code of Conduct before submitting the form. Guests with a prior history of rider misconduct or behavioral misconduct should not expect to receive an invitation this year. 

Here’s Fridays’ preliminary schedule:
