Located on the West side of the Admissions/Registration building in the Main Gate Plaza. Information is available concerning all accessibility concerns.
Handicapped parking is located as close to the ticket registration building as possible. It helps if you have a handicapped placard so that the parking lot attendees can wave you on to the lot. If you have trouble walking, we have a golf cart that will shuttle people from the handicapped parking lot to the ticketing window or to where you can rent a scooter (3 or 4 wheeled single-seat battery-operated motorized scooter = $65 per day).
You can also bring your own scooter or power wheelchair. SUN ’n FUN insurance does not allow for the use of golf carts during the convention by the public. The types of vehicles for mobility aides allowed during SUN ’n FUN convention are:
manual or battery-powered
single seat, battery-powered, two or three or four wheeled designed for the use of a mobility-impaired person.
The person using such a device does not need special credentials or passes to bring this on to SUN ’n FUN convention grounds. If the guest does not have their own or will not be bringing it, we have scooters and manual wheelchairs available for rent on a daily basis located near main registration. ($20 for wheelchairs; $65 for scooters per day, cash or credit cards). It is advisable to make reservations in advance. Click here to make reservations online or call 888-441-7575.
* People using scooters and wheelchairs are allowed to go wherever the general public is allowed, which includes the flightline with the proper credentials. SUN ’n FUN grounds are very accessible but vast. Therefore, the Blue Route on the transportation trams will take a person using a wheelchair or scooter along with their family and friends.
There are members who desire to camp at SUN ’n FUN but cannot do so without the use of electricity for specific medical conditions. We have a very limited number of CAMPING spots that will allow such a person to utilize and electrical outlet. These are on a first-come first-served request well in advance of the convention and backed up by medical documentation.
