Costumes and Props Policy

For the safety of our animals, our guests, and our staff, everyone must abide by these costume and prop policies.

No functional props or weapons are allowed inside the park. Simulated or costume weapons are allowed as a part of your costume, but are subject to security check and clearance by security and must comply with the following:

  • All costume props and weapons must be inspected during security check.
  • Costume masks must be removed during admission and security checks.
  • All costume props and weapons must conform to state and federal law.
  • NO Realistic replica firearms: This includes reproduction, fake or toy guns that can be confused for functional firearms – either metal, solid resin/plastic/rubber.
  • Projectile costume props and weapons must be rendered inoperable. This includes blow guns, bows, silly string, slingshots, water balloons and water guns. No props or weapons capable of firing any projectile or powder charge of any kind.
  • Costume swords/bats must be tied to your costume in such a way that they can't be drawn.
  • No stilts
  • At certain times, due to crowds and safety issues, people in oversized costumes may be asked to leave any indoor location.
  • Costume cannot depict, and cannot itself, be in violation of any law.

We retain the right to review and restrict any prop or costume from entry which we believe could be a hazard to our animals, our guests or our staff. If you do not want to have your costume props inspected, or if you are not willing to comply with these policies, please do not bring your costume props.
