Things to Know Before You Visit

Sensory Sensitive Weekends

June 15-16 and September 14-15

Join us for a customized Story Land experience!
You can expect park music to be turned down, ride music will be off/turned down, ride announcements will be turned down to a lower decibel, certain geysers/water features turned off and MAP (Medical Access Pass) passes will be available for any guests who cannot wait in line. In 2018 we held the Grand Opening of our new Calming Room, a sensory sensitive environment for those who need a break. New in 2018 as well, we designated a Quiet Dining area next to Los Bravos Burgers. During Sensory Sensitive Weekend only, a VIP line at two lunch locations will be set up. This will allow guests with a VIP pass to order food quickly. As always, guests are more than welcome to pack lunches/snacks if food lines are of concern. During this weekend only, a special exit by Bamboo Chutes will be open from 3 pm – 5:15 pm to offer families an easier way back to their cars.
Check back in for more updates as the events get closer!

Story Land is committed to making all families feel welcome at our park, and we hope the below information can help you and your family better enjoy your visit.

NEW! Check out our VIRTUAL TOUR to get an even better idea of what to expect when you visit the park.

We are happy to offer a Medical Access Pass to meet the needs of guests using wheelchairs and others who are unable to use queue lines. In an effort to make their experience safe and convenient, these passes can be picked up free of charge at Guest Services.

A Quiet Dining Area is located behind Los Bravos Burgers and is a great place for those who are looking to dine in a more calm space. Although this is the only designated area, there are many places to enjoy a more quiet lunch or snack. Above Sandwich Oasis and behind Humpty Dumpty's wall are both typically less trafficked and tend to be quieter.

Calming Room image


Our Calming Room is designed as a sensory sensitive environment for those who may need a break from the noise and stimulation of a theme park environment. The Calming Room is equipped with bean bags, a soft rug, dimmable lights and air conditioning. It is located at the front of the park behind Humpty Dumpty's wall and all are welcome to use it if needed.

Smoking Areas


If a member of your party has a smoke sensitivity, please note that there are 2 designated smoking areas in the park. One is located in the front of the park behind Miss Muffet's Market before the bridge to Dr. Geyser's, and the other is located in the back of the park next to Crab Crawl. There are select weekends during the season that Story Land goes completely smoke free; check out our events for more information.

hand dryers


Please note that all Men's & Women's restrooms at Story Land have automatic hand dryers. If you wish to avoid them, please use a Family/Unisex restroom. All Family Restrooms are without automatic hand dryers EXCEPT for the location near the Polar Coaster.
