Q. How much does it cost?

Q. What movie is being shown?
A. CARS 3 - Driven to Win (Disney + Pixar)
Q. What time does the movie start?
A. The movie will start at approximately 6:00pm, we wait for the sun to fully set before the screen becomes completely visible. Gates will open at 4:30pm for guests to begin parking.
Q. If I come early, will I get a better spot?
A. No. Gates open at 4:30pm, at that time we will begin parking cars in pre-measured rows. We work hard to park cars in a way that makes sure everyone has a great view of the screen.
Q. How does parking work?
A. Upon arrival, each car will be directed to a specific row. You are able to pull in front facing or rear facing (ex. the bed of a truck facing the screen is rear-facing). There will be enough space behind each row should a car need to leave early and for emergency vehicles.
Q. Can I save car spots for my friends or family once I arrive?
A. No, we cannot save spots for cars that are not there. We recommend meeting up at a central location before coming to the movie so you will be in line together, and thus parked closer to each other.
