This amusement park hosts a day for homeschoolers after the local public schools have started up for the year. Ride bracelets for unlimited ides are $11.50 each for homeschoolers and their families. One does not need to show any sort of proof of homeschooling. The crowds are much, much smaller than during the summer time. There are grassy areas for eating lunch.
