This much awaited Service operates on weekends and public holidays with trips every 40 minutes as per the schedule below. We are planning on operating every weekend as long as weather allows and the park is not closed for other events. We limit the number of passes available to avoid queues and so far have not had pass holders not able to get on a trip.

Our day pass is $50* and allows unlimited rides throughout the day. To purchase you can buy online below. When you turn up with ID on the day you will be given a wristband and can ride all day. The pass is for the use of one person only and must be purchased and picked up by someone over the age of 16. If you choose to give the pass to someone under 16 that is your risk.
Our 25 ride pass is $200* and allows 25 rides any time the bus is operating for public use. These passes cannot be used on days when the service is operating only for events.
