Do you offer unlimited ride wristbands for the whole day?
Yes, we are pleased to offer wristbands which enable you to ride unlimited depending on your height! You can choose from: Little Kid wristband for people under 1.25m and Big Kid wristbands for people over 1.25m, AAA (Octopus’s Garden, Roller Disco, Amusement Park – 15 years and under only) and The Weekender wristband (Saturday and Sunday)

Can I use my wristband everywhere within Dreamland?
Depending on your height your wristband will get you unlimited ride access as well as access to some of the amusement park attractions. You will need to purchase separate entry into the Roller Disco, the Octopus’s Garden and the events.

Can you buy wristbands and tokens in advance?
If you buy your wristbands in advance online you will save money! Tokens are only available to purchase on the day.

Can we refund tokens if we don’t use them all up on our visit?
The ride tokens are non-refundable, however, they are valid to use for when you visit the amusement park on another day! Make sure you keep them somewhere safe or use them all up on the day!!

Can I use my tokens and wristbands to buy food and drinks?
All food and drinks outlets accept only cash and card only. This is the same for the Dreamland Emporium and the Sweet Shop. Tokens and wristbands can only be used for rides and attractions.

I have a Dreamland Membership, do I still have to pay for the rides?
Because you are one of our exclusive members, all of the rides and attractions are included in your Dreamland Membership with the exception of the Octopus’s Garden and Roller Disco.

Does my membership guarantee entry every day?
Yes you will have access every day the park is open. On the very rare ocassion you may be asked to wait before accessing the amusement park if we are at full capacity.



What rides are in action today and what are the height restrictions? 
We’ve just updated our snazzy new rides page, where you can filter the rides by height. You can see our current ride line-up here 

Is the Scenic Railway still listed even though it has been rebuilt?
Yes! It was not the wood that was listed it was the structure, design and location of the railway. It has been lovingly re-built under the watchful eye of English Heritage.

What happened to the The Whip and The Corbiere Wheel?
The Whip and the Corbiere Wheel are being stored by our partners at The Dreamland Trust for future development.

It's raining today, will all the rides be working?
During wet weather conditions it maybe necessary to temporarily close our Born Slippy slide and our Helter Skelter, and in cases of high winds the Big Wheel, if this happens Dreamland will do everything possible to open these rides as soon possible.

What is the smallest shoe size you offer in the Roller Room?
We offer shoes all the way down to a kids size 8. 



I can't find the prices on the website.  Where are they?
The ride and wristband prices for 2017 will be available soon.

Can you enter the park without an adult?
You must be over 14 to be able to enter our park alone. Children under the age of 14 are to be accompanied by an adult aged 16+.

Is there parking at Dreamland?
Yes! There is a public car park at Dreamland owned by Thanet District Council. Spaces are limited, however, so we cannot guarantee you a place. Make sure you give yourselves plenty of time to avoid disappointment. Alternatively there are many other car parks close by.

Is there a charge for parking?
The car park is owned and operated by Thanet District Council. All fees for parking can be found on the Thanet District Council website or you can click here.



Will it be like the Dreamland I remember? 
We can't promise that every detail that you remember will be there but every nook and cranny of the new Dreamland will be touched by the hand of a designer. We do promise that there will be nowhere quite like Dreamland.

What time will the park open and close?
The amusement park opening dates and times will be announced soon. Please see the relevant pages for the Roller Disco and Octopus's Garden opening times.

Can we camp at Dreamland?
We're afraid we don't have a camping area at Dreamland. However, there are a number of hotels in the area and we are only a five minute walk from Margate train station.

Will dogs be allowed on the park?
As much as we love our furry friends, we are only allowed to permit registered assistance dogs to help disabled visitors to enter the park.

Can I smoke at Dreamland?
Yes, there will be designated areas throughout the park. Smoking will not be allowed in any other areas.

Will you be serving alcohol?
Yes. There will be alcohol served in designated areas. If you are buying drinks, please ensure you do not leave these areas when drinking them. You will also need to show proof of age when buying alcohol.  

Will you be serving food?
Yes! To keep those smiles wide, we've got a selection of tempting treats to tantalise your tastebuds at a choice of different food outlets. Yum!!

Can we bring in food and alcohol?
We're afraid we do not allow food or drink to be brought into the park. However, you will be able to buy delicious food inside the park. If you have brought food or drink with you, you will need to keep it safe in your vehicle or consume it before entering the park.
