Most of our gate staff have been with Thomas Point Beach for many, many years and they work quickly and efficiently.  At the gate you will present  pre-purchased tickets you will have printed prior to arrival or a form of payment.  The gate team will put your wristbands on, and if you are a multi- day ticket holder you will receive a program, a sticker for your vehicle, and a trashbag to keep  our beautiful park looking wonderful!  We ask for your patience in the process and do suggest pre-purchasing your tickets for the savings as well as the efficiency.
