How: Buy tickets. Last year, they were $60 each. This year's price will be determined by the Grad Night Committee. The park is charging us $65 per student. We will offer a discount to those who buy tickets early. Tickets purchased early will cost $60. They will be $65 after that.
About Camelot Park: Camelot Park/Boomers is an amusement complex in Livermore. We have held Grad Night here since 1997, including last year. It is off Hwy 580 near the Livermore Airport. It has a racing track with gas-powered miniature race cars. It has a small lake with powered bumper boats, complete with squirt guns. There are 2 18-hole miniature golf courses, with plenty of mobile and water hazards. Outside is a motion simulator ride. Indoors is a Lazer Tag arena. It has a large arcade area with lots of video games, driving games, and carnival-style skill games. There is an area for dancing and tables for dining. We are looking at getting other entertainment. We will have the entire park to ourselves. Outsiders will not be allowed in. No one will be allowed to enter or leave the facility during the event.
Transportation: Private chartered luxury tour buses will pick up the students at Lincoln and will take them to Camelot Park, which takes about 40 minutes. Use of the buses to and from the park is required.
Tickets: Tickets must be bought beforehand. Ticket sales will start at a time to be determined by the Grad Night Committee. We can offer incentives and raffle prizes to ticket buyers. Ticket prices include charter bus transportation.Food will be provided. Students will receive a keepsake memento. For students from low-income backgrounds who want to go to Grad Night, but cannot afford it, "scholarships" can be awarded, depending on the success of fundraising efforts. (See the Lincoln Outreach Office.)
