A summer time staple in Duncan and Stephens County won’t open up for regular business this year.
After careful thought, Kiddieland and Kiwanis leadership has decided the park will only open for private parties and will remain closed to the public in the wake of COVID-19. The decision comes after careful consideration of health and safety for guests.
Kiddieland will offer the park to be reserved by private parties with no more than 50 people.
According to a recent Facebook post, if patrons have purchased a Golden Ticket, those parties will be rescheduled and information on dates and times will be published to the group’s Facebook.
Parties can reserve days from Thursday through Sunday, beginning July 16 and ending Sept. 27. If patrons want to book a party for September, they will need to book by Aug. 31. The party will not exceed one hour, including evening and mornings. There will be no “open to the public” parties. No one except the lessee and their guests will be allowed in the park for the private party.
The only evening time slots for parties is 6:30-7:30 p.m. and 8-9 p.m.
Saturday is the only day morning parties will be scheduled, beginning at 9 a.m. Rides will be cleaned every hour and there is a 10 minute recommended wait time before the next party.
Kiddieland will adhere to social distancing guidelines and hand sanitizing is recommended.
The cost is $35 per ride per half hour with a minimum of three rides.
Kiddieland will review the states status regarding COVID-19 in 30 days.
