Join us July 2, 3, and 4 for Coca-Cola® July 4th Fest – the most exciting Independence Day celebration in town. This three-day party features your favorite all-American traditions and has everything you need to celebrate the country in the best way possible. Here are six fantastic activities you’ll only experience at our patriotic celebration.
1. Get exclusive ride time with a can of Coke
Each day of the event will kick off with exclusive ride time on some of our most popular attractions. Bring any can of a Coca-Cola product or purchase one at the front gate, along with park admission or Season Pass, and you’ll get to enter the park one hour early to ride select rides. On July 2 from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m. and July 3 and 4 from 9:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m., you'll get to ride BATMAN: The Ride, Mind Bender, THE JOKER Chaos Coaster, Goliath, Dare Devil Dive, HARLEY QUINN Spinsanity all three days.
2. Watch three nights of beautiful fireworks displays
No July 4th celebration is complete without fireworks, and we’ll have one of the most impressive displays in the region. End each day at the park with a bang as a dazzling star-spangled pyrotechnic spectacular lights up the night sky over the park, choreographed to a classic patriotic soundtrack. The show will begin at 9:30 p.m. each night, so be sure to head to the Cotton States Exposition district early for the best views.
3. Participate in interactive activities and win cool prizes
In between rides, stop by our Coke Zone to participate in fun festive activities. A live DJ will host an all-American dance party with the hottest summer hits and patriotic songs. Stay refreshed with ice cold Coca-Cola beverages under the shaded pavilions. Every hour on the hour, you can enjoy interactive Coca-Cola Challenge Games for your chance to win great prizes and cool giveaways. You’ll also get to hang out with the Looney Tunes characters!
4. Write a message to the Military
We’re partnering with the USO to honor our service men and women with the Campaign to Connect program. Stop by the Coke Zone area to send a personal message to the Military personnel serving our country, and help us reach our goal of sending one million messages of appreciation and support to Military members and their families. Additionally, when you bring a can of Coke to the park, not only will you save on admission and enjoy exclusive ride time, but every ticket purchased with a can of Coke will provide $1 back to the USO.
