My family and I visit the Adventure Park annually to enjoy the amusement rides in the beautiful, natural setting around Cultus Lake. Here are a few tips for visiting Cultus Lake Adventure Park.
The park operates daily in the summer (rain or shine) ending on Labour Day. There are two sessions per day:
- AM Session: Arrive by 11:00 am – (rides start at 11:30 pm. exit by 3:30 pm)
- PM Session: Arrive by 4:30 pm (rides start at 5:00 pm. exit by 9:00 pm)
The price is $25 general admission per person for entrance to the park AND unlimited rides along with mini-golf access regardless of age or height.
However, children under 36" are free with a paid adult. The admission is for either the AM or PM session.
You cannot make reservations or buy tickets in advance. So, you will need to arrive for the start of the AM or PM session in order to gain admittance.
It's a first-come-first-serve basis but you can enter before the close of the session as long as capacity permits.
In terms of my experience, we arrived at the start of the session and it was an orderly process. I think everyone in line got in and people were able to gain entrance to the park well into the session since it was not full.
Once you get in, you need to stay in the park until your are ready to leave. There are no in and out privileges.
If you park in the amusement park's lot, the cost is $12. It is FREE, however, to park in the Waterpark Lot across the street for the 2020 season.
Before entering the park, each group (maximum 6) needs to fill out a registration card with questions related to COVID-19. These cards are distributed to you while you await in line.
There are MANY hand sanitizing stations throughout the park. My family sanitized our hands after going on each ride.
I also noticed staff wearing masks and regularly cleaning surfaces, equipment, the seats on the rides and washrooms.
The only ride which I didn't feel like there was any disinfecting between rides were the Bumper Boats. Rides in the boats could still spray each other from the boats.
Social distancing was maintained around the park and on the rides. The lines were not very long for the popular rides.
The grounds are really well kept and clean and the rides seem well maintained.
Inside the Park
There are two food stands within the park: The Clubhouse and The Cantina.
The Cantina offers hot dogs, fries, mini donuts, snacks, & drinks.
The Clubhouse offers novelty ice cream, popsicles, chips, candy, Twist Potato & cold drinks.
Outside the Park
There are a few places across the street in a plaza where you could eat. The Lakeside Beach Club is a full-service sit-down restaurant. There's also Beethoven's Pizza and Legends Bistro at Cultus Lake Golf Club. Check out Huis Shave Ice which just moved close to Cultus Lake Adventure Park this summer (see my review of Huis Shave Ice).
If you are coming off Highway 1 from Vancouver, there are restaurants located in the small community of Yarrow. Stop for some ice cream in Yarrow at Mighty Moose Ice Cream (see my review of Mighty Moose Ice Cream).
Although this park is what you would consider to be a smaller park, there is still a lot of fun to be had for all ages. There is a roller coaster, ferris wheel, mini-golf, bumper boats, a tightrope obstacle and more.
Overall, I recommend visiting Cultus Lake Amusement Park for some great summer fun in the Chilliwack.
