Park Policies

ALL-DAY RIDE PASSES and SEASON PASS RE-ENTRY: All-Day Ride Pass guests who leave the park and plan to return the same day must get a re-entry ticket at the exit gate before leaving the park.  Re-entry tickets are only valid for use on the same day. To re-enter the park, you must present your re-entry ticket or Season Pass at admissions.

Smoking: Smoking in children’s areas, seating areas, ride lines, and under covered structures is prohibited. Smoking policy includes e-cigs/vapor devices.

Weather: Because Albuquerque has such wonderful weather, we rarely have to close for weather conditions. Safety is our top priority and we will close the attractions in  case of severe weather; attractions will re-open as soon as the storm threat passes. Cliff”s offers a re-admission (“raincheck”) ticket if the weather causes all of the following attractions to close for 30 consecutive minutes: New Mexico Rattler, Rocky Mountain Rapids, Cliff Hanger, The Big Flush Water Coaster, and the WaterMania! Water Park.

  • You must present your original Cliff’s Amusement Park admission receipt copy to the Guest Relations window in order to receive a Rain Check.
  • Cliff’s Amusement Park ride passes are non-refundable.
  • Season Pass holders are not eligible to receive a Rain Check.
  • Once attractions resume operation, Rain Checks will no longer be issued.
  • During inclement weather we suggest visiting Candy Corner (our gift shop) or one of our many other concession food locations.

Security: Cliff’s Amusement Park is private property and we reserve the right to inspect all persons and belongings on Cliff’s property.

Service Animals: Your service animal is welcome in Cliff’s Amusement Park.  Service animals must be registered and tagged at admissions.  Animals must be in the owner’s control at all times and must be on a harness or leash no longer than four feet. Owners are responsible for the cleaning and disposing of animal waste.

Dress Code: We ask that our guests dress appropriately for our family park environment. Shirts, shoes, and shorts/pants are required at all times in the ride section of the park. Proper swimwear is required for all WaterMania! attractions. Denim and swimwear with zippers, buckles, or rivets are not permitted on WaterMania! attractions. No bikinis/swimwear allowed WaterMania! and on attractions. Clothing with offensive material, LOGOS or SYMBOLS are not permitted, and we will ask that it be removed.

We request that Guests with disabilities have someone who is familiar with their needs accompany them to the Park to assist them when loading and unloading onto rides. Special accommodations can be provided at admissions and/or Guest Relations where the guest can be issued a Disability Access Pass (DAP).

Prior to participating on any ride, Guests should evaluate the ride during its complete loading, running and unloading cycle. From this evaluation they should consider their own individual capabilities. This evaluation should include:

1) The ability to withstand the forces resulting from the ride action.
2) The ability to comprehend how to load, unload, and participate on the ride,
including certain effects the ride will produce
3) The ability to brace, as needed, against certain ride effects.
4) For your safety, please contact Management for assistance regarding
rides which may not be accessible to certain disabled individuals.

It is important to realize that there is always a remote chance that a situation may arise which requires some walking or may require the participants to be removed from a vehicle during the course of the ride. Although these occasions are rare, please be aware of this and use discretion and good judgment. Guests have a duty to act in a responsible manner before boarding any ride, device, or attraction and to obey all oral and/or written warnings prior to and/or during participation. At some rides, Guests must be mobile enough to be able to evacuate themselves using catwalks or stairs.

Guests with disabilities and the person accompanying them should enter at the exit and wait for instructions.

Before riding, please inform the ride attendant of specific needs or extra time that may be required to board or exit the ride.


There are inherent risks in the participation in or on any amusement ride, device, or attraction. Guests of an amusement ride, device, or attraction, by participation, accept the risks inherent in such participation of which the ordinary prudent person is or should be aware.

The safety of our Guests and employees is the #1 Priority at Cliff’s Amusement Park. Safety is a shared partnership between the park and our Guests. Guests are asked to review and use good judgment when considering the ride restrictions. The Management of Cliff’s Amusement Park reserves the right to refuse to allow any Guest access to a ride which Management deems inappropriate for the individual. Please observe all caution signs before entering ride lines.

Please also note:
Due to the design of particular ride carriers, large Guests (in terms of height and/or weight) or Guests of unusual body proportions may be unable to ride.
Hearing devices and other electronic devices may be damaged by water on water rides. Please take necessary precautions to protect these items. Due to the fact that many rides vibrate, Guests should take necessary precautions to protect hearing devices and eyeglasses on all rides.

Please ensure prosthetic or orthotic devices are properly fitted and secured before riding. A prosthetic or orthotic device that becomes detached during a ride could endanger another rider and severely compromise the effectiveness of your safety restraints.

Guests may not ride on another’s Guest’s lap.

Line cutting may result in dismissal from the park.

A wristband does not guarantee access to a ride due to height restriction. Guests with wristbands will still be measured at the ride locations to ensure consistency.

Alcoholic beverages are not allowed in the park. Guests have a duty to not participate in or on any amusement ride, device, or attraction when under the influence of drugs or alcohol and a duty to properly use all ride or device safety equipment provided.
