Guest information


I have allergies/dietary restrictions. Can I eat the midway food?

  • We encourage guests with allergies and dietary restrictions to ask the vendor about ingredients to ensure it is safe for them to eat. Guests are permitted to bring their own food on park if they feel there is a risk of contamination. The CS Restaurants (Maverick’s, Concessions, etc.) do not use peanut oil in their cooking but there is always a risk of contamination.
