Ticket Booths

Name Ticket Booths
About the Area Info Box

Ticket Booths opened in XXXX. It sounds like the park first opened with free admission to the shops on Main Street, with a section at the bridge that you had to pay to pass and get to the rides.

Background music plays from speakers in the booth. In 2016, a new permanent single-file queue area was added. Now, everyone waits in one long line and gets to the next available ticket window. This should allow the lines to move much faster, instead of groups picking their own window and possibly getting stuck behind a slow group.

During busy mornings, when there is a line to buy tickets, the workers can press buttons to make the speaker announce which window is available.

There are also special announcements played on busy days warning about Adventure Bay capacity limits.

During Oktoberfest, other announcements were played about the event.
