Frequently Asked Questions
- What forms of payment are accepted at the park?
Cliff’s Amusement Park accepts cash, all major credit cards, and Fun Cards. Sorry, no checks accepted.
- Can I use cash in the Park?
Cliff’s Amusement Park is a cashless park. Instead of cash, guests can purchase a Cliff’s Fun Card for any desired amount, which can be used for purchases anywhere in the park. Fun Cards may be purchased in advance of your visit online or the day of your visit at Guest Relations or a Fun Card Kiosk. Any amount remaining unspent on the Fun Card when you leave the park may be used on the next visit. “Bonus Value” is value that a guest may have received for free with a promotion and cannot be used for General Admission, All-Day Ride Passes, or rentals. Bonus/Comp Value expires at the end of the season.
- Do you sell gift cards/certificates?
You can purchase a Cliff’s Fun Card for any dollar denomination of your choice, that can be used for any park purchases, including gate admission. Fun Cards can be purchased at any ticket window or by going to our online store.
- What food can I bring into the park?
One bottle of water per guest and baby food are the only outside food and drink items allowed into the park. Exceptions will be made for medical reasons.
- If we leave the park, can we come back in or do we have to pay again?
Guests who leave the park and plan to return the same day must obtain a re-entry ticket from the Exit Gate Attendant before leaving through the Exit Gate. Re-entry tickets are only valid for use on the same day. To re-enter the park, you must present your re-entry ticket at admissions.
- What happens if it rains?
The weather in New Mexico changes often and, in most cases, storms pass quickly. In the chance of rainstorms and other severe weather conditions, some rides may be temporarily closed. If the majority of the rides are closed for more than 45 minutes, we will gladly offer a ‘Return Pass’. Return Passes are not distributed after the storm has passed, or within 2 hours of our scheduled closing time. Cliff’s does not offer refunds (no exceptions).
- You must present your original Cliff’s Amusement Park admission receipt and associated Ride Pass wristbands to the Guest Relations window in order to receive a Return Pass.
- Season Pass holders are not eligible to receive a Return Pass.
