The Flex Preschool Pass and the Free Preschool Pass grant the passholder unlimited admission to Story Land after the pass has been activated. Only children ages 3, 4, or 5 years of age at the time of activation qualify for the Preschool Pass. It does not include admission to Living Shores Aquarium.
Registration is the process of filling out the online form for your child's Preschool Pass. Registration is limited to certain times of the year.
You may register your eligible child for:
FREE Preschool Pass between November 16th, 2020 and December 31st, 2020
FLEX Preschool Play Pass between November 16th, 2020 and March 1st, 2021
Once registration closes the Preschool Pass you are interested in is no longer available.
Activation is the process of bringing your eligible child to the Park to have their photo taken, government issued birth certificate or passport reviewed for age verification and a season pass card generated. The activation window is open and limited to certain dates for the FREE Preschool Pass (reference calendar above) while the FLEX Preschool Pass can be activated on your first visit any operating day. The activation window for the FREE Preschool Play Pass closes June 29, 2021. If you do not activate your child's pass* by this deadline the Preschool Pass is no longer valid and another form of admission will be required for your child.
*Only applicable for the Free Preschool Pass.
The Free Preschool Pass has an activation deadline of 6/29/2021. The Flex Preschool Pass has no activation deadline.
The short answer: it depends! But let us help you decide.
What is your child's birth date?
Between 3/3/2015 and 6/29/2015: Your child will be turning 6 during the activation period for the Free Pass, and you must visit us to activate the child's pass prior to them turning 6. You should register that child for the Free Pass. Their pass cannot be activated after they turn 6, and thus you would be required to visit us prior to 6/29/2021 regardless.
Between 6/30/2015 and 6/29/2018: Your child will be 3, 4, or 5 during the Free Pass activation period and you should register for the Free Pass, as long as you can visit the park prior to 6/29/2021. If you do not think you can visit the park prior to 6/29/2021, you should register these children for the Flex Pass, which will allow you to activate their pass at any point in our operating season.
Between 6/30/2018 and 9/6/2018: Your child will not be 3 until AFTER the activation period for the Free Pass ends, and thus they do not qualify for the Free Pass. You can register these children for the $29.99 Flex Pass, but please note we cannot activate their pass until they are 3. For example, if the child's birthday is 8/12/2018, we could not activate their Preschool Pass until 8/12/2021. Admission is free for ages 1 & 2.
No, 2020 Preschool Passes do not carry over into 2021. Even if the pass was activated and your child still qualifies in 2021, you need to register that child for a 2021 pass.
All Basic, Standard, Premium, and Platinum 2020 Season Passes have been extended to cover the entire 2021 season. If you already have a pass and would like to register your child for the 2021 Preschool Pass, please send us an email to request a promocode once registration opens November 16th. This promocode will allow you to register your child for a 2021 Preschool Pass without a paid season pass in your cart.
Both the Flex and the Free Preschool Pass grant the passholder unlimited admission to Story Land with no blackout dates after the pass has been activated. Preschool Passes are not valid for admission to Living Shores Aquarium and have no other benefits associated with them.
Step 1: Register your eligible child for the Free or the Flex Preschool Pass. An adult's Season Pass must be in your cart prior to adding the Preschool Pass.
Step 2: Activate the child's pass at the park during the applicable activation period. The child's state issued birth certificate or travel passport is required to verify the child's age at the time of activation. No other documents will be accepted for age verification.
No, your child does not qualify for the Free Preschool Pass. You can register that child for the Flex Pass and activate after they turn 3 if you wish.
Yes! You can renew a Preschool Pass if the child had an active (meaning you came to the park, verified age and have a physical season pass card) Preschool Pass in 2020 and they still qualify in 2021. There is no need to activate a Preschool Pass renewal. Please note that only children who qualify for the 2021 Preschool Pass that had an active Preschool Pass in the 2020 season can renew. If you are unsure, please reach out to us directly ASAP so we can assist you.
No, name changes will NOT be accepted on Preschool Passes. Child’s name on the voucher MUST match the name on their birth certificate or government issued passport. No exceptions will be made.
