Can I amend my school trip booking with Oakwood Theme Park?

Yes, absolutely! Please email your booking amendments to [email protected], making sure you include your school name and visit date!

What do I need to bring on a school visit to Oakwood?

Nothing major – just yourselves and a coach-load of excited students!

Of course, there are a few nice-to-haves that you may like to bring along to make the day go smoothly. Booking and payment confirmation are always helpful, as are any other documents and admin. A first aid kit is also recommended (as it is on all school trips).

One more thing you may like to bring along is a gazebo and some camping chairs. That way staff can set up a base of operations within the park that serves as a nice rendezvous point and a place to enjoy a sit down after all the excitement.

Can I do a pre-visit before the school trip?

Unfortunately, no, we don’t offer free pre-visits. If you have a specific question about our facilities or accessibility measures, our reservation specialists will be happy to help.

Do you provide lockers?

Yes, you can leave luggage at Whistlestop Shop or in the Box Office for a small charge per item. Any luggage is accessible as many times as required throughout the day.

Is Oakwood Theme Park cashless?

No, cash and cards are accepted. We understand that it’s often easier for children to use cash when visiting the park, so all our vendors, stalls and shops accept physical money.

Will any of the rides at Oakwood expose students to water?

Yes, Waterfall, Skull Rock, Snake River Falls and Drenched are our main water attractions, while there’s also an opportunity for students to get wet over at the Boating Lake.

Are there dining options?

Certainly! Visitors have a choice of places to eat at Oakwood, including cafes and fast food outlets. If you’d prefer students to bring their own packed lunches, we also have expansive picnic areas where you can meet and eat as a group.
